Nivisha here! I hope you are doing well.
This time I am back with something very unique and it is not related to fluid art. I tried working with resin for the first time.
Here are some observations I made about the Little Birdie’s resin:
- It is very quick. My coaster was ready in less than an hour.
- There were not many bubbles while I was mixing it.
I really loved the quality of the resin.
Let’s get started !
This was my first try at it….
I hope you all share some positive feedback about my work.
Clear resin and Resin Hardener
Ice cream sticks
Velvet Orchid pouring paint
A measuring cup
Use any kind of tape to remove any dust particles from the mould. You can do this by peeling the tape off against the surface repeatedly.
This is the most important step while you are working with resin.
You need to measure both the chemicals very accurately.
The instructions say that they need to be in the ratio 1:1.
I used this cup for measuring it. I poured the clear resin and the hardener of the same quantity through this cup.
You can use a weighing scale or a cup.
Make sure your MIXING RATIO is right.
Take both the resin and hardener together and keep mixing them gently until there are no bubbles and the colour should change from cloudy to clear.
I added a tiny drop of the velvet orchid pouring paint because I wanted a lavender touch.
You can use any colour and any kind of paint that you want but make sure you add few drops only.
Mix it well.
Pour it on the mould evenly and you can use an ice cream stick to finish the edges.
If you see any bubbles you can burst them using a safety pin or toothpick.
My coaster was ready in an hour’s time.
HERE ARE THE FINAL RESULT’S
I HOPE YOU LIKE THEM!
