Learn how to use alcohol-based colors to add some interesting designs to your resin bracelet castings!
Adding alcohol inks to clear epoxy resin is an easy way to get beautiful jewel-tone colors. Add more than one color and you can get a rainbow of colors in your resin bracelet. Here’s how:
- Resin bracelet mold
- Resin Obsession super clear resin
- Castin’ Craft mold release spray
- Nitrile gloves
- Stir Stix
- 1 ounce mixing cups
- ICE resin tints
- Assorted sandpapers and resin gloss sealer spray (optional)
Prepare your mold with the mold release spray. Allow to completely dry.
Mix the resin thoroughly according to label directions. For this tutorial, I mixed 20 ml in total.
Slowly pour the resin into the bracelet mold.
Add the tint 1 drop at a time to the resin. (For this project, I wanted a rainbow effect, so I used multiple colors.)
Once the ink is added, use a toothpick to push the ink down into the resin and draw it through. Be careful not to scrape the bottom of your mold. The toothpick can make scratches.
Swirl to the desired effect. Allow curing.
Demold the bracelet by twisting the mold and pushing it from the backside. Finish the bracelet as desired.
Enjoy your rainbow swirl resin bracelet!
