Resin Candy Pendant Tutorial How To


It's easy to make fun and colorful candy pendants with resin.  It actually was a lot easier than I expected.





I did a video tutorial on how to do a resin pendant with candy sprinkles.  I hadn't done it before, but I think they turned out pretty great!  I used Easy Cast and it was in fact EASY.
Here's the tutorial:



I also tried a flower from my garden (see below).  It started out bright yellow, but there must have been some kind of chemical reaction because it was an orange-red when it was done!  Still looks kind of cool!



Materials:

-  Easy Cast Epoxy Resin
-  Sprinkles or something you want to embed in resin
-  Cups and stir sticks
-  Molds made for resin casting




Directions:

1.  Follow directions that come with Easy Cast box to prepare the resin.
2.  I put a little into the mold and let it sit for a minute or so and then added my sprinkles.
3.  Let sprinkles settle and add more resin if necessary.
4.  Let dry over night and unmold in the morning.
I did not use a release agent on the castings, but they popped out just fine.  I read somewhere that if you put it in the freezer (when it is time to remove) it makes it pop out easier.  I don't know if that is true.
5.  After letting it sit overnight, it is hard, but not fully cured.  It will likely take another couple of days before it is fully cured.
6.  If necessary, trim edges and file rough edges.
7.  If you want more shine, go over it with a Triple Thick or comparable product.

Have fun crafting and I would LOVE to see what you come up with!
