Resin Supplies needed:
- Resin Obsession super clear resin
- 1 ounce measuring cups
- Silicone flower mold (I used mold F0147 single flower)
- Alumidust intermediate blue color powder
- Stir stix
- Nitrile gloves
- Blue Adirondack alcohol ink
- Soft paintbrush
- Glue on ring finding
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.*
Be sure to lightly dust the powder into all parts of the mold. A little of this powder goes a long way.
Measure your resin and mix thoroughly.
Here’s where you get to make your resin ring tutorial unique to you. Pick alcohol resin color, then add a drop or two to the resin. Mix well.
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.
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.
Get your resin mold full — even a little overfull. Your resin will shrink a tiny bit once it cools.
Cover and allow to cure.
Once cured (approximately 24 hours), gently peel away your resin flower casting from the silicone mold.
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.)
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.
Dazzle your friends with your creativity.
