gold flake resin earrings

These shimmery earrings can be customized in endless ways by adding foils and/or glitters to UV resin. Ready in just minutes!
Step 1

Make sure mold is clean, dry and free of dust.

Step 2

Pour enough clear resin to cover the bottom of the mod cavity directly from the bottle.

Step 3

Heat under a UV lamp for one light cycle (or place in direct sunlight for about 15-20 minutes) to cure this first layer.

Step 4

Now, pour some UV resin into a silicone mixing dish and shred Gold foil into the resin. Mix well.
TIP: If smaller pieces are desired, use a stir stick to break up into smaller foil pieces.

Step 5

Pour the Gold foil resin to fill the mold to the top.

Step 6

Cure the mold under the UV lamp (or in direct sunlight) for several minutes until completely cured. Cool for 1-2 minutes. De-mold the shape by popping it out of the mold.
TIP: If still slightly tacky, cure again under the UV light.

Step 7

Attach two of the shapes to a metal connector with jump rings.
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, from side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring which can cause distortion.

Step 8

Carefully open the loop at the bottom of a fishhook earring, slide through the hole at the top of the metal connector and close the loop.

Step 9

Repeat Steps 1-8 for a second earring.
