Resin flowers are so versatile, especially for jewelry! Did you know how easy it is to make your own resin flower jewelry?
Mix and color the resin
Mix an appropriate amount of the Resin Obsession super clear resin. Since I knew I was going to be pouring for 4 flower cabochons, I mixed up a total of 22.5 cc (15 cc of Part A and 7.5 cc of Part B) of clear resin.
I wanted my resin flowers to be FUNKY, so I used the Alumilite Fluorescent resin pigments to color my resin.
Mix a drop or two of the fluorescent yellow resin pigment into the mixed clear epoxy resin. Hint: Sometimes it can be hard to squeeze pigment from the bottles. I will remove the top and dip a toothpick into the bottle to get the color to add to the resin.
Thoroughly mix the color into the resin.
Pour the resin into the flower mold
Carefully pour a small amount of mixed resin into a silicone flower mold.
Add a bit of resin, then pick up the mold and twist it like you were trying to demold a casting. This will allow trapped bubbles to come to the surface and will help get the resin into all the intricate points of the design.
Once the molds are full of resin, cover and allow to cure. Not shown: Demold the cured resin flower by gently twisting the mold, grabbing an edge and lifting the flower out.
Make your resin flower jewelry wearable
Apply a dot of E6000 adhesive to the back of the cabochon and the surface of the finding. Wait 2 to 3 minutes before pressing together.
I’m using bobby pins and ring blanks for these flower resin charms.
Press the resin cabochon and finding together. Allow to dry for 24 hours before wearing.
Enjoy your resin flower jewelry
These rings are super cute. I can see wearing these rings with a colorful spring dress.
I also love how cute these look on bobby pins. These would be a great gift for any school-aged girl.
