resin jewelry making supplies

Supplies needed:

 

 

 

alumidust powder silicone mold

Use the paintbrush to place a light dusting of the alumidust powder into your silicone mold.  *The powder is very finely ground.  Be careful not to inhale the powder.*

 

 

 

 

 

alumidust powder

Be sure to lightly dust the powder into all parts of the mold.  A little of this powder goes a long way.

 

 

 

 

 

mixing resin

Measure your resin and mix thoroughly.

 

 

 

 

 

adding ink to resin

Add a drop or two of the alcohol ink to the resin.  Mix well.

 

 

 

 

 

pouring resin

While holding the stir stix over the mold, pour resin onto the stick.  Allow the resin to run from the stick into the mold.  By doing this you will spread out where the resin makes first contact with the mold and hopefully will leave your blue dust undisturbed.

 

 

 

 

 

resin in mold

After pouring some resin into the mold, pick it up and twist it like you are demolding it.  This will allow trapped air bubbles to come to the surface.

 

 

 

 

 

resin casting silicone mold

Get your resin mold full — even a little overfull.  Your resin will shrink a tiny bit once it cools.

 

Cover and allow to cure.

 

 

 

removing resin from silicone mold

Once cured (approximately 24 hours), gently peel away your resin flower casting from the silicone mold.

 

 

 

 

sanding resin

Sand off any excess resin from the edge of your flower.  (Some of the resin may be thin enough that you can peel it away with your fingers.)

 

 

 

 

glue ring flower

 

Apply a dot of E-6000 glue to the underside of your resin and flower and the top of your ring.  Allow it to sit for two minutes before pressing the two parts together.  Let the glue dry for 24 hours.

I like how the blue powder makes a matte looking finish, I may have to try this!

@Alice, I don’t know. The Alumilite powders are meant to dust on the surface of silicone molds, but I don’t know about Pearl Ex.

Add the powder to the resin after it has been mixed with hardener or sprinkle flakes onto the resin after you have poured it.
