Resin Tutorial: Apothecary Jars Key Chain

In this beginner friendly resin tutorial I will be going through step by step process for creating apothecary jar key chains. I used purple and blue in this tutorial, however feel free to play around with different color schemes.

For this project you will need the following craft supplies:

  • mixing cups
  • mixing sticks
  • epoxy resin
  • apothecary jars silicone mold
  • blue pearl resin pigment
  • purple pearl resin pigment
  • black acrylic paint
  • eye screw
  • jump ring
  • key ring with chain


A video tutorial is available on my YouTube channel showing all the steps explained in this tutorial.



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

Step 2: Divide the resin into two mixing cups.

Step 3: To the first mixing cup add purple resin pigment.

Step 4: To the other mixing cup add blue resin pigment.



Step 5: Mix each cup well, making sure to thoroughly and evenly distribute the pigments.



Step 6: Pour the resin mixtures into the silicone mold. 



Step 7: Wait for the resin to cure.



Step 8: Once the resin has fully cured, de-mold the resin from the mold.



Step 9: Paint the details using black acrylic paint.

Step 10: Wait for the paint to fully dry.



Step 11: Drill holes at the top of each bottle charm.



Step 12: Add the eye screw to each bottle. 



Step 13: Attach the jump ring and key ring with chain to each eye screw.

Step 14: Prepare and mix a batch of clear resin as per manufacturer's instructions.

Step 15: Dome the bottle charms by pouring a small amount of resin on the surface. Using a stir stick, gently move the resin towards the edges to create an even layer. Make sure to work on a level surface.



Step 16: Wait for the doming layer to cure and then your key chains are complete.
