neon resin colors

Step 1:  Mix and color resin

Measure a total of 1 1/2 ounces total (15 mls) of resin and hardener. Mix according to the package instructions. Divide it into 4 cups and color each cup with a different colored bright pigment. To keep the resin translucent, only add a small drop, mixing well. Leave the mixed resin on your workspace for 5 minutes for the bubbles to dissipate.

Step 2:  Add colored resin to the silicone mold

Pour the magenta and yellow into the opposite ends of the mould.

Next, pour the pink resin next to the magenta resin and the red resin next to the yellow resin, allowing the colours to blend into each other.

Step 3:  Blend the colors

Use a wooden stir stick to draw the red resin into the yellow resin and mix the two colours together to create orange. Set aside to cure for a couple of hours until the resin has firmed up but the resin can still be flexed.

Step 4:  Demold the resin

Once the resin is at the soft cure stage, release the resin from the mold by pulling the silicone away from the strip of resin.

The soft cure stage of resin is when it is cured, but still bendable.  This time varies from resin to resin.  For the super clear resin, this is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours after pouring.

Step 5:  Form the resin

Place the strip of resin around a bracelet form and secure it by placing elastic bands in the channels of the rows of the pyramids.

Pro tip:  Be gentle with the resin.  You want to maintain the texture on the outside of the bracelet.

  1. Wow! I had no idea you could handle resin in a partially cured stage like that. This opens up so many possibilities, thank you!!

  2. Is resin flexible after it cures? I’m just wondering how long a cuff bracelet would last before it snaps. (I’ve had cuff bracelets of other materials break.)
