Bi-color resin earrings tutorial
Can you be in love with a resin color? Every day, I have a new favorite of the Resin Obsession liquid pigments. On the days I can’t decide which is my favorite, I use two. *wink-wink*
You know what is ironic about my color choices? I did the EXACT same color patterns when I did something similar in a bangle bracelet video. I must have a thing for yellow and green together.
The ear wires were ones I already had made here. They were made of 22 gauge, half-hard sterling silver wire. If you were going to make your own, this tutorial looks useful: hoop wire earring tutorial.
I liked the finished earrings, although I was disappointed they weren’t quite as ‘color-divided’ as I had hoped. I think the warm resin, poured into a small cavity, made it impossible for it not to do a little mixing on its own. Next time I try this, I think I will let the resin sit an additional 10 to 15 minutes after mixing to let it cool off some. The downside to doing this is that any bubbles will be harder to get out at this point.
