Step 2: Right away add your cobweb and spider confetti into the uncured resin. 

Then let the first layer to cure. As a minimum wait until the resin has become nearly solid before you proceed to the next step. Otherwise, the resin layers might mix and you will lose the effect along with all your hard work.

Step 6: Prepare a small amount of epoxy resin (mix as per brand instructions), and dome your resin charms.

Add a small amount of resin at a time to avoid an over-spill. The aim here is to create a bubble (dome) effect, so you need the resin to retain the tension. Adding a drop more than needed will break this tension. 

First add a small amount of resin on top of your resin charm, and move the resin towards the edges using a silicone tool or a wooden stick. Then add very small amounts to the middle as needed. Always add very small amounts at a time.

When you are ready, wait for the resin to cure.
