Instructions

Step 1: Prepare and mix resin as per manufacturer's instructions.

Step 2: Divide the resin into 2 mixing cups.

Step 3: To the first resin cup add golden green pearlescent resin pigment.

Step 4: To the second resin cup add blueberry resin dye.

Step 5: Mix each cup well and make sure that the pigments have been thoroughly distributed into the resin to avoid curing issues.

 

 

Step 6: Pour the resin into the outline section of each shaker mold. Do not use all of the blue resin mix - leave some for the moon cat mold (see step 7 & 8).

 

Step 7: To the blue resin mix add sapphire blue pearlescent resin pigment, iridescent blue glitter and holographic gold chunky glitter. Mix well.

 

Step 8: Pour the blue glitter mixture into the moon cat silicone mold.

Step 9: Wait for the resin to cure.

 

Step 10: Prepare and mix resin as per manufacturer's instructions.

Step 11: To the resin add iridescent white glitter and cellophane flakes.

 

Step 12: Pour the glittery resin mixture into the shaker molds, filling the molds all the way.

Step 13: Wait for the resin to cure.

 

Step 14: When the resin has fully cured, de-mold the pieces from the silicone molds.

 

Step 15: Prepare and mix resin as per manufacturer's instructions.

Step 16: Divide the resin into 3 mixing cups.

Step 17: To one of the cups add green resin pigment.

Step 18: To another cup add maya blue resin pigment.

Step 19: To another cup add violet resin pigment.

Step 20: Mix each cup well making sure that the pigments have been thoroughly and evenly distributed into the resin to avoid curing issues.

 

Step 21: Pour the resin mixtures into the cavities of the resin pieces created earlier. Use a variety of colors in each section to create a galactic effect. 

Step 22: When you have filled all of the cavities, sprinkle some of the gold chunky glitter and hollow star confetti.

Step 23: Wait for the resin to cure.

 

Step 24: Prepare and mix epoxy resin as per manufacturer's instructions.

Step 25: To the resin add white glitter and cellophane flakes. Mix well.

 

Step 26: Pour a small amount of the glittery resin mixture onto the middle section of each resin piece.

 

Step 27: Add hollow star confetti, moons and stars onto the resin.

 

Step 28: Dome each resin piece by gently moving the resin towards the edges using a stir stick. Add more resin a little at a time as needed. Make sure to work on a level surface.

Step 29: Wait for the resin to cure.

 

Step 30: Drill a hole at the top of each resin piece.

Step 31: To each hole add the eye screw. 

Step 32: Attach the jump ring to the chain and add it to the eye screw. Repeat this step for each charm.
