Hello everyone! Daisy here. I am back with another Resin DIY. Thank you for making time to read this blog.
Today we will be making a heart keychain.
For this we will need resin, alcohol inks, heart shape mould, a measuring scale, a paper cup, a popsicle stick (I have used a plastic one here), silicon glue and jump rings and keychain rings.
Before starting with the DIY, please make sure to use safety gear when working with resin. Please use a respirator and gloves.
First, we will mix the resin and hardener in the proportion of 2:1 using a measuring scale. I will be taking the measurements in grams. I will first pour the resin in the cup.
Next, I will pour the hardener. Since it is a 2:1 ratio resin, the quantity of the hardener will be half the quantity of resin.
After pouring both the resin and the hardener, we will mix it for 3 minutes and then let it sit for 1-2 minutes, so that the bubbles in the resin are released.
We will divide the resin into 2 parts. Mix white pigment into half of it.
We will leave the resin to become thick for 30-40 mins. After that we will pour it in the heart mould.
Next, we will add the alcohol inks. Here we will add 2 shades of pink
We will next pour strings of white resin and use a toothpick to swirl around the white resin.
After 18-20 hours, we will de-mould the pieces and put masking tape to the back of the piece.
We will next put a top coat of resin. Spread the resin evenly with your fingers.
After this layer cures, we will cut the excess resin off using a pair of scissors.
We will next use some silicone glue to stick the 2 pieces to each other. We will add a jump ring and a keychain ring to the top of the piece.
Your Heart Keychain is ready!
