A Different Kind Of Resin, Just For You

October 28, 2019 — 9 Comments

After de-moulding it I was blown away by the result.

The pink resin has spread and split as expected and the black pigment at the back really did make that more obvious.

The clusters of the larger glitter flakes in between the layers also gave an extra glint of twinkle when viewing it.

So happy with this!

Looks a bit like a stellar explosion or a mystical crystal ball mirror thing.

Oh, one final tip. Sometimes there is a bit left over so, having a random mould of little shapes to hand is a perfect way of not wasting these bits.

Here are some my balls.

Stop giggling.

Anyway, I hope that you have enjoyed this post about my experiment with resin. If you would like to see other posts from me about this topic, please check out the ‘related posts’ link below or click here to see the archive of posts tagged ‘resin casting’.

    Hi John. Can this resin be used to topcoat an acrylic pour. ? Thanks. Gloria. X



    This is my favourite so far John. I’m not even a ‘pink’ person normally but I love it! It’s amazing how the pink resin has got such texture but it’s under a smooth surface – yum! Oh, I love the balls too, gorgeous colour! Would it be too naughty of me to say it’s a good job they don’t have the same apparent texture as the coaster? Oops, said it now. I hope I haven’t offended anyone :o) Clare x

    Great tutorial John and yes I did have a bit of a laugh regarding your ‘left over bits’.

    Oh my goodness!!! Here I am, making Christmas cards withone hand and trying to do a bit of decluttering with the other every time I set foot in my workroom, and you go and give us a New Craft….
    Ok, once the resin is cured, could you use it for a cheese board or similar – obviously not the pink one, but I’m thinking possible present ideas?
