I've got a pretty solid background now of playing with various resins.
It's alot of fun and you can create so many different pendants, rings and hair clips. Anything from candy, sand, pictures, bugs and dried flowers/plants.
If you have any questions I'll do my best to answer them if you message me about anything I haven't covered in the tutorial.
Here I am measuring out ONE of the solutions in the kit...the hardner.
Resins are created through a chemical reaction of two solutions. One will be the catalyst.
***Always read the instructions as each resin varies on how to use.***
I'm using Envirotex Lite. In this case it's a 1:1 ration.
So if you use one ounce of one, you use one ounce of the other.
Aaaand mix for at least two minutes.
It's SUPER important not to rush this step as if it's not mixed right, it aint gonna set right.
Now three things will probably happen when you do this.
1) It might feel if you hold the container that it's getting warm. This is normal since it's a chemical reaction taking place.
2) Air bubbles will appear. We'll talk about this later. Don't worry about them keep mixing.
3) It'll get milky in colour. Keep stirring this will go away.
Bubbles tiiiiny bubbles may appear.
With envirotex lite breath LIGHTLY onto the pendant after it's poured.
It's the CO2 in your breath that create them to pop NOT the force and NOT the warmth.
If you're not using envirotex and using a more industrial resin check out my other mold resin pendant tutorial for more tips.
