Learn how to make a sky in a bottle with resin!

The sky is a beautiful and interesting 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 that’s what we are gonna do by putting resin in glass bottles!
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 15 ml 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.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
Step 3: Layer the colors
Here’s how you add your colored resin to the glass bottle: a layer of colored resin, some cotton, clear resin, cotton, then top it off with colored again. This gives the effects of some of the clouds being colored and some staying white.
Eventually, you’ll get something that looks like this! Once the resin is cured, you can attach a jewelry finding to make it wearable. This project is pretty quick, most of the time only being for the prep. Even the cure time was quick! I want to say it only took an afternoon for it to be fully cured and ready to make into a 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’m going to use the blue resin sky in a glass bottle as a keychain. I attached an eyelet and looped some ribbon around, and boom! Hope you try putting resin in glass bottles and have a little bit of the sky for yourself!
