Resin Pendants Jewelry Tutorial

Hello

I have had some feedback on my resin pendants and how to make them with the colors and swirls.



Here are the instructions and pics on how to create my swirl pendants.


materials that you will need:

Resin mold - 11 popular jewelry shapes
EasyCast clear resin (part A, B)
color powder, pearl ex pigments, purple and bright gold (ur choice of colors)
reusable resin measuring cups
stiring sticks
tooth picks
timer
tissues

resin and color powder

resin mold

step by step instructions:

1. Mix EasyCast resin following manufacturer's instructions.

2. Pour small amounts of resin into 2 separate cups to mix in the pearl colors purple and bright gold.

3. Pour the remaining clear resin into the selected mold cavities just below the top to allow for extra drops of color.

4. Use a toothpick to pick up one of the colors and drip a drop into one of the shapes anywhere.

5. Do the same with the other colors, as in step 4.

6. The drops will settle down into the resin, not just sit on top.

7. With a new toothpick and tissue in hand, swirl the colored drops around to make shapes in the clear resin. Between each swirl clean your toothpick on the tissue. You can pull the colors into each other for mixed color affect, any shape you wish, in this case swirls.

8. When satisfied with the affects, clean your area and let resin cure. Pop resin out of molds.

9. Once casting has fully cured polish and buff if you wish. Drill a hole with a rotary tool and small drill bit or small hand drill or wire wrap for a pendant, earrings or keyring.


To mix in colors, instead of drops and swirls, I used a pipette [pic below], suck in some color and on an angle into the resin, squirt the color in, this will create like bubbles of color into the resin. [example pic below].
