Description

Made from resin, took 24 hours to set. i dropped my items in the resin instead of putting the items in before the resin is poured. If you find a better way then please message me so i may have a go lol :D PLEASE DO THIS IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA AND NOT IN YOUR BEDROOM, i learnt the hard way!!

Instructions

  1. Find a well ventilated area, preferably with a table or a level surface for you to work on, and wear your mask.

  2. Collect all your tools together, i chose a small heart chocolate mould to fill. Place all your moulds ready for pouring.

  3. Mix 100ml of resin with 35 drops of resin hardener in a pot and stir well. If you want to add resin dyes then now will be the time before you pour into the moulds.

  4. Pour the Resin mixture in your moulds and drop your items into the resin (i pushed them in using the end of an old paint brush. Once everything is in the mould, leave it to harden for over 24 hours. As i did mine in my freezing cold bedroom, it took a bit longer than 24hrs to set.

  5. If your resin had hardened properly then it won't turn a yellowish colour. If it turns slightly yellow then you either have put too much hardener or not enough hardener. Once set glue it to a ring blank with jewellery glue. And Voila, Enjoy
