If you’re lucky enough to have a creative person in your life, you might be wondering what makes an excellent gift to give. Here’s my list of gift ideas for resin artists that will give them hours of fun creating.
This is a great way to do so for someone just getting started with resin. You can get resin, mixing cups and utensils, and a mold (depending on which kit you buy) to get you started.
Resin supplies that aren’t resin
There’s nothing sexy about mixing cups and wax paper, but they are essential to casting resin. Some of the supporting items I have in my resin art studio:
Wax paper or freezer paper
Plastic domes to cover resin while it’s curing.
Plastic containers. These are great for storing your resin and keeping all your crafting supplies contained. They don’t even have to be new. The right size food containers can be reused and work just as well.
Drying mat. I really love this mat for the knobs being able to keep everything in place while I push around resin with a toothpick. It also has open areas to allow you to put the bail of the pendant so that it rests flat while it cures.
I have too many resin molds, said no resin creator ever. Molds are fantastic gift ideas for resin artists. We have everything from jewelry molds to paperweight molds in our store. You can even gift dice molds so someone can make a custom dice set for game night.
Take a look at our best selling resin molds.
I don’t know that you can ever have too many resin jewelry-making books. It’s an excellent opportunity to learn from a new teacher and hopefully pick up something.
Maybe your favorite resin crafter has been getting by with a hand drill. How about an upgrade to something like a Dremel tool or flex shaft?
Which one of these resin gift ideas for artists is your favorite?
And they all DEFINITELY beat #17 on this list.
