The Resin Cuff Bracelet Hack Only The Pros Know

How to make a resin cuff bracelet

Bracelets are one of the simple accessories I love. They can be big, small, thick, colorful. Plus, you can stack several of them together to mix colors and textures. One of the drawbacks, though, is that it can be a tight fit to get a bracelet over your hand. Instead of reaching for the automotive joint grease, there is an easier fix. I’m showing you how to make a resin cuff bracelet.

Cuff bracelets are great because you’ve got an opening to slide it onto your wrist. That means even if you’ve got big hands or making a fist is difficult, you can still rock a beautiful bracelet. Let’s take this beyond beautiful, shall we?

Let’s make a cuff bracelet in funky colors.

Supplies need for this resin cuff bracelet project:

Resin Obsession Super Clear Resin
Resin Obsession Pigments: Bright Yellow, Bright Red, Bright Pink, Bright Magenta
Silicone cake decorating mold with pyramid points
Measuring cups
Wooden stir sticks
Bracelet form
Rubber bands


neon resin colors

Step 1:  Mix resin

Measure 1 1/2 ounces total of resin and hardener. Since this epoxy resin mixes 2:1, that means you’ll need 1 ounce of resin (part A) and 1/2 ounce of hardener (part B). Combine thoroughly until it’s blended and streak-free. This takes 2 to 3 minutes

Step 2:  Color resin

Divide the mixed resin into 4 cups and color each with a different colored resin pigment. Leave the mixed resin on your workspace for 5 minutes for the bubbles to escape.

Step 3:  Add the resin to the mold

This is where things get really fun with resin as you make your cuff bracelet. Get ready to work quickly. The resin will spread and blends on its own. (Don’t worry, that’s what you want.)

Pour the magenta and yellow resin into the opposite ends of the mold.

Then, pour the pink resin next to the magenta resin and the red resin next to the yellow resin. Let the colors blend into each other.

Step 4:  Blend the colors

Use a stir stick to draw the red resin into the yellow resin and mix the two colors together to create orange.

Set your cuff bracelet aside for a couple of hours. The resin needs to form but is still flexible before going to the next step.

💡 Pro tip: You will hear this called a resin’s soft cure stage. This time varies from resin to resin. For the super clear resin, it’s about 1 1/2 to 2 hours after pouring.

Step 5:  Demold

Release the resin from the mold by pulling the silicone away from the strip of resin.

Step 6:  Form the resin

Secure the resin strip around a bracelet form. Use elastic bands in the channels between the pyramids to keep them in place.

Set the cuff bracelet aside for 24 hours to finish hardening the resin into its new shape.

💡 Pro tip: Be gentle with the resin. While it’s soft like this, you can dent it and leave marks.

  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.)

    1. Hi Gwen, we don’t sell this mold. It’s one intended for fondant. If you search for cake making supplies, you should be able to find something similar. 😉
