I always wanted to use my plastic candy molds for resin projects, but I couldn't…..or could I?
Turns out I could, but didn't know it! A world of possibilities just opened up for me! With a little Vaseline, I could use any mold I wanted! Wooohooo!
You will need:
- Plastic mold - I bought this mold at Michaels in the chocolate/candy section
- Resin - I use Easy Cast Resin
- Pigment powder
Here is the video tutorial:
1. Prepare your resin according to package directions.
2. Prepare your mold by rubbing a thin layer of Vaseline inside the cavity and I like to go over the edges to the flat part, in the event I drip or overfill.
3. Pour in resin.
4. Take different pigment powders and drop them into the resin in globs. Taking a toothpick or skewer, start to move the pigment powders around. Keep doing that until you get the look you want.
5. Allow to sit for at least 12 hours.
6. Remove from mold. Wipe off any excess Vaseline and then either brush on a thin layer or resin, or clear nail polish/topcoat.
That's it! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
