resin paperweight

Create gorgeous, layered resin paperweights with Craft Smart Resin. These are great moulds for using leftover resin from other projects. Just add a bit to the mould 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 mould requires about 50 mL of clear casting resin and the square mould 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 mould onto parchment paper or silicone mat and pour desired amount of resin for the first layer into the mould.

Step 4

Repeat Step 2 with different dyes, mix-ins or powder until mould 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 mould.
