BIG Tutorial. Jewelries with dandelion, glass and seashells. Epoxy resin and molds. DIY
- epoxy resin;
- silicone molds for epoxy resin;
- rubber gloves, squirts, glasses, sticks to mix resin;
- different natural materials (dried flowers, stones, shells etc.);
- potal, stained glass paint, powder perleks.
To create pendant with the help of half-sphere mold I picked 2 different dandelions, to compare then how they will look like in the final variant.
Before beginning carefully wash the molds and wipe them dry. Put on rubber gloves, pour resin and hardener in glasses (it's more convenient to . Work in well-ventilated room!
Measure resin using a squirt, pour it into another clean glass; with another squirt measure hardener and add to the resin. Different producers of resin have different proportions, so read attentively instructions and follow them. Final result depends on accuracy. If the resin wouldn't harden it means that proportions were violated or both components weren't mixed good enough.
Use wooden stick to mix hardener with resin. I mix them during 10 minutes with circular motions avoiding of getting of air inside the mixture.
Put the dandelion into the mold (some pieces of it I deleted with tweezers)
Put aside resin for a half an hour to let the chemical reaction happen. You can understand, that it's started from the heating glass with resin. Don't work in too warm weather or hot room. High temperature will speed up chemical reaction and resin will become hard to soon.
Pour carefully with a thin stream resin into the mold on the dandelion.
As after hardening resin will sag a little bit - pour more resin, to get convex lens.
Now I'll show you how to make rings using glasses, which were polished by sea.
Pour some resin, put stones/glasses and pour resin as in half-sphere mold to make convex lens on the top.
