Step 1: Prepare and mix resin. Make sure to follow the measuring and mixing instructions provided with your resin.

Step 2: Divide the resin into 3 mixing cups into a ratio of 1:1:3.

Step 3: To the larger mixing cup add a small amount of resin pigment. Mix well.

Step 4: To one of the smaller resin mixtures, add black resin pigment, silver glitter, holographic black chunky glitter and holographic black cellophane flakes. Mix well.

Step 5: To the remaining cup add orange resin pigment and iridescent white cellophane flakes. Mix well. 
Note: make this orange resin mixture darker than the one created in step 3. 

Step 6: Start by pouring the darker orange resin mixture at both ends of the silicone mold.

  

Step 7: Pour the black resin mixture in the middle of the mold.

Step 8: Pour the lighter orange resin mixture.

Step 9: Wait for the resin to fully cure.

 

Step 10: Remove the resin from the silicone mold. 

 

Step 11: Drill two holes at the top of the resin piece.

Step 12: Place an eye screw into each hole. 

Step 13: Paint the cobweb engraving using white acrylic paint.

Step 14: Use black acrylic paint to paint the wording and spider engraving.

Step 15: Wait for the paint to dry.

 

Step 16: Clean excess paint from the surface of the resin using rubbing alcohol or surgical spirit and a cotton swab. 

Step 17: Add a jump ring to each eye screw.

Step 18: Add the chain.
