resin crescent moon

This beautiful, etched mould will help you create a gorgeous resin display piece.
Step 1

Mix 100 mL of clear casting resin according to package directions.

Step 2

Split resin into 3-5 parts. Mix one with glitter, one with gunmetal mica powder and one with black alcohol resin dye.
TIP: If desired, mix additional dye like blue and purple. If you want a darker look, add a drop of black to the mixtures to deepen the hue.

Step 3

Place mould on a protected surface, like a silicone mat (or parchment paper), and pour resin into the mould. Follow the shape of the curve to create stripes of dye. It helps to pour a single layer quickly, then add remaining resin into the stripes to fill the mould.

Step 4

Let resin cure for 12-24 hours.

Step 5

To bring out the etched design, brush Silver acrylic paint over the surface, let it dry a bit, and then wipe it off with a baby wipe (or wet cotton swab).
