Instructions

Step 1: Prepare and mix resin as per brand instructions.

Step 2: Pour the clear resin into the lid part of the shaker mold. Fill the mold all the way.

 

 

Step 3: Divide the remaining resin into 2 mixing cups.

Step 4: To one mixing cup add golden pearl resin pigment.

Step 5: To the other mixing cup add bronze pearl resin pigment.

 

 

Step 6: Mix each cup well for approximately 2-3 minutes, making sure that the pigment is evenly and thoroughly distributed into the resin. 

 

 

Step 7: Pour the resin mixtures into the base part of the shaker mold.

 

 

Step 8: Wait for the resin to completely cure (approximately 24 hours unless otherwise stated in the resin instructions of the brand you are using.

 

 

Step 9: Remove the shaker lid from the silicone mold.

 

 

Step 10: Remove the shaker base from the silicone mold.

 

 

Step 11: Place the shaker inserts into the base part of the shaker.

 

 

Step 12: Prepare and mix some resin .

Note: you will only need a small amount to secure the lid to the base.

 

Step 13: Place small amounts of resin onto the edge of the base part of the shaker. Distribute a thin layer of resin evenly all over the edge.

Note: Do not add too much, otherwise it will spill out when securing the lid.

 

 

Step 14: Gently place the lid onto the base. Press gently and evenly on the edges to ensure that the lid is securely placed and to remove any air pockets.

 

 

Step 15: Wait for the resin to cure.

Step 16: To turn the shaker into a key chain, drill a hole and add your findings.

 

 

Note + Tip: if you prefer to make a liquid shaker, add in the oil after you drill the hole and secure the eye screw with some resin to avoid leakages.
