      I haven’t found a non-messy way to do this.  First, I would suggest using the Resin Obsession crystal doming resin. You can buy it in our store here: It will give the thickest coating.

      Next, put the bead vertically onto something thin (toothpick, pin, etc.) that is either wax coated or sprayed with a good mold release.  Vaseline may even work.  Using the toothpick example, put the bead onto the toothpick.  (Hopefully, the bead stops on it at some point.)  Push the toothpick into a base (styrofoam works well).  Brush on the resin and allow it to drip off the bead.  Once cured, take it off the toothpick.  You may have to sand a little resin, but hopefully, it won’t be much.

      Hi!  Can anyone give help on how to get the resin to go over round polymer clay beads without pooling to one side?
