resin paperweight

Create gorgeous, layered resin paperweights with Craft Smart Resin. These are great molds for using leftover resin from other projects. Just add a bit to the mold each time you have some left over and eventually you will have a really cool, layered paperweight.
Step 1

Mix desired amount of clear casting resin according to package directions.
TIP: Resin paperweights are best created in layers, which need time to dry between layers. The triangle mold requires about 50 mL of clear casting resin and the square mold 120 mL. It’s best to mix a small amount of resin at a time to allow for drying time.

Step 2

Add desired dye, mix-in, or powder to your resin.

Step 3

Place mold onto parchment paper or silicone mat and pour desired amount of resin for the first layer into the mold.

Step 4

Repeat Step 2 with different dyes, mix-ins or powder until mold is filled. Wait at least one hour between layers for clear distinction.

Step 5

Let resin cure for 12-24 hours before removing from the mold.
