Wondering what you can give the wine lover in your life? Then you are going to love this tutorial. I’m going to show you how to make a resin wine caddy.
Resin supply list:
Step 1: Mix the resin and hardener
For this project, I used three ounces of mixed resin. Since the super clear resin mixes in a 2:1 ratio, I needed two ounces of Part A resin and one ounce of Part B hardener.
Pro tip: The super clear resin is a great choice for a project like this because it won’t bend while holding the weight of wine glasses.

Step 2: Color the resin
Split the resin amongst several mixing cups. Pick colors you like that will go together, keeping in mind the colors sometimes blend to create a new color. This article on how to mix colors will guide you if you are unsure which colors to put together. For this wine butler, I’m using Resin Obsession opaque white pigment, and Pearl Ex colors in red russet, antique gold, and super copper.
Pro tip: Leave a little bit of resin clear. You may decide you want to add in another color or add clear resin to the mold to keep colors from mixing as much.
Make sure your colors are well-blended before moving on.
Step 3: Add colors to the mold
Add colors in rings to the mold. Pour in thin layers getting the next color close to the other color.
You will need to work quickly.
There is no right or wrong way to do a resin wine caddy project. Have fun with the colors. No two will be the same!
Step 4: Remove bubbles
Go over the surface of the resin with a heat gun before letting it cure. For the super clear resin, that takes 12 to 24 hours.
Step 5: Demold
Once the resin is fully dry, peel the mold away from the resin while grabbing the resin edge.
Your resin wine caddy is ready to use!
