DIY Halloween Decoration: Tombstone resin magnet
For this project you will need the following craft supplies:
- epoxy resin
- Creepy Tombstone Silicone Mold
- mixing cup
- mixing stick
- black pearl resin pigment
- silver fine glitter
- holographic black chunky glitter
- holographic black cellophane flakes
- white acrylic paint
- magnet sticker
A video showing how I made this project is also available:
Step 1: Prepare and mix resin. Make sure to follow the instructions provided with your resin.
Step 2: To the resin add black pigment and glitters. Mix well.
Step 3: Pour the black glittery resin mixture into the silicone mold. Fill the mold all the way to the edge.
Step 4: Wait for the resin to cure.
Step 5: Remove the cured resin from the silicone mold.
Step 6: Using white acrylic paint, paint the engraved detail on the tombstone. Do not worry if it's messy at this stage, it's very easy to clean up later when the paint is dry.
Step 7: Wait for the paint to completely dry.
Step 8: To remove excess paint, use a cotton swab and rubbing alcohol (or surgical spirit). This will only remove the paint from the surface of the charm, so you can easily wipe the entire surface at once without worrying about the paint coming off from the engraved parts. Finish by polishing the surface with a soft dry cloth.
Step 9: Stick the magnet at the back of the charm.
