The sky is a beautiful and exciting thing, and it can make your whole mood change. A picturesque blue sky, a mellow sunset, or a majestic galaxy. Now, what if you could take a sky that makes you feel the best, and put it in a bottle, so you can have that feeling wherever you go? Well, we will do that by putting epoxy resin in glass bottles.
-Glass charm bottle
–Resin Obsession super clear resin
–Resin Obsession Orange, pink, and purple transparent resin pigments
Pull apart cotton balls or pull the cotton ends off of an ear swab. Pick and pinch them apart until you are satisfied with the appearance. The cotton on the left is picked apart, and the cotton on the right is not. Try not to pick them until they are just wisps because that will be much harder to build up to clouds.
Step 2: Mix resin
Mix 1/2 ounce (total) of Resin Obsession super clear resin. Then split it into four cups so you can color it using transparent Resin Obsession purple, orange, and pink. Leave the last cup clear.
The super clear resin is the best epoxy to use for this project because it releases bubbles easily. Plus, it’s easy to drip into a small opening like this glass bottle.
Step 3: Layer the colors
Here’s how you add your colored resin to your glass bottles: a layer of colored resin, some cotton, clear resin, and cotton. Then, top it off with colored resin again. This gives the effects of some clouds having colors and some staying white.
Eventually, you’ll get something that looks like this! Once the resin is cured, you can attach a glue-on bail to make it wearable. This project is pretty quick, most of the time only being for the prep. Even the cure time was fast. It only took an afternoon for it to be fully cured and ready to make into a resin charm.
With this same method, I made the resin colors darker and made a galaxy. By using a blue gradient, I can make a sunny afternoon blue sky. But with this project, the sky is the limit. Pun intended!
I will use the blue resin sky in a glass bottle as a keychain. I attached an eyelet and looped some ribbon around, and boom!
I hope you try putting resin in glass bottles and have a bit of the sky for yourself.
