resin shell

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

Mix 160 ml of clear casting resin according to package directions.

Step 2

Split resin evenly into five plastic cups. You will add mix-ins to four of the cups and reserve one for clear resin only.

Step 3

In one resin cup, mix in pink and Copper mica powder to create a melon shade.
TIP: Create your own shades and effects by mixing different dyes, powders and mix-ins!

Step 4

In another resin cup, mix in pink and orange opaque resin dye to create a similar melon shade.

Step 5

In a third resin cup, mix in fine, rose Gold glitter.

Step 6

In a fourth resin cup, mix in pink and orange opaque resin dye as in Step 4 and add shell flakes from the resin mix-ins set.

Step 7

Place the shell mould on a protected surface, like parchment paper. Pour each resin mixture into the mould starting with the darkest melon shade at the bottom and ending with clear resin at the top. Drag a craft stick from the bottom of the mould to the top to create lines of pulled resin. This will help give it a “shell” look.

Step 8

Let resin cure for 12-24 hours.

Step 9

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