DIY Halloween resin charms - Glow in the dark

Supplies needed for this project are:

  • Halloween Silhouettes Silicone Mold
  • Epoxy resin
  • Iridescent orange, purple and green star confetti
  • Violet alcohol ink
  • Mango alcohol ink
  • Purple glow in the dark resin pigment dye

 

Instructions

add clear resin into your silicone mold

Start by adding a small amount of resin into your silicone mold. You only need to add just enough to cover all around the shape. Do no add too much, as we will be adding another layer to the first part/section of the mold later on.

add the confetti to your resin

Then add the iridescent hollow star confetti to the uncured layer of resin.

Wait for the resin to harden.

prepare and mix your colored resin

Prepare a batch of epoxy resin and divide it into 2 mixing cups. Into one cup add 3 drops of Violet alcohol ink, and into the other cup add 4 drops of Mango alcohol ink. Mix each cup well to evenly distribute the coloring.

pour colored resin into silicone mold

Pour the colored resin into the silicone mold. Be careful not to add too much - do not go beyond the first part/section of the mold. 

Wait for the resin to harden.

prepare colored resin

Prepare a batch of epoxy resin and add 12 drops of the Purple glow in the dark resin pigment dye. Mix in the dye very well.

pour colored resin in silicone mold

Pour the colored resin into the silicone mold. You can fill it up to the top if you'd like - feel free to make the base/back layer as thick as you prefer.

Wait for the resin to cure.

remove cured resin from silicone mold

De-mold your cured resin charms from the silicone mold.

dome charms with resin

Dome the charms with resin to make them super shiny.

Wait for the doming layer to fully cure before handling to avoid getting any fingerprints on them.

finished resin charms

When the doming layer has finished curing, your Halloween resin charms are complete. I used mine as a Halloween decoration and stuck them on a window glass using a hot glue gun.
