Easy Chick Charms | Easter Crafts | Craft Klatch

Learn how to make easy resin charms, using cute buttons!

Here is a quick video to see how I did it:


The links below help support this channel,  as I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

You will need:
-  Bezels:  https://amzn.to/2TVSM0O
-  Fast curing resin:  https://amzn.to/2EhfMSr
-  Pigment powder:  https://amzn.to/2ImPxOv
-  Buttons:  check Michaels or Hobby Lobby



Directions:

1.  I had found these bezels a while back, in the clearance section, and thought they would be perfect for this project.


2.  Because they do not have flat backs, I used bottle caps to keep them in place.

3.  I mixed my resin.  The resin I used is a fast curing resin and it cures white.  I had to work fast!

4.  I separated the resin into two small cups and added pigment powder to each.  Pigment powder can have a very strong color, but because the resin cures white, it makes them pastel.



5.  I poured the resin into the bezels.


7.  I dropped the one chick button into the pink resin and let it sit.

8.  The purple resin was curing quickly, so I had to squish the other chick into it and hold onto it.  It all cured within 15 minutes.


That's it!  Now we have two adorable chick charms!  Add a jump ring and a cord and you have a necklace.  You can also turn it into a keychain.

Easter Bunny Resin Coaster | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch

Learn how to make an Easter Bunny Resin Coaster in this easy craft tutorial!

Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:



The links below help support this channel,  as I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you.

You will need:
White acrylic paint:  https://amzn.to/2N5cpRv
Black acrylic paint:  https://amzn.to/2N5csg9
Pink acrylic paint:  https://amzn.to/2TVnHdq
White craft foam:  https://amzn.to/2E9KU6A
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Clear Cast:  http://amzn.to/2z4rxGw
This is the resin I used for this project:
FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.
Fast Cast (white background):  https://amzn.to/2wTZ6wc




Directions:

1.  Cut out bunny ears from white craft foam.  TIP:  If your edges are not smooth, you can take fine sandpaper and smooth them.

2.  I used pink multi-surface paint to paint the inner ears.


3.  I mixed fast curing resin that cures white.

4.  I put the bunny ears in and held them in place.  That is why I used the quick curing resin, so I wouldn't have to hold it for hours!

5.  After about 15 minutes, I pulled it out of the mold.  It hadn't completely cured, but was cured enough to pull out and lay out on a flat surface.

6.  You may find that the resin does not cure completely white.  To cure that, I took some acrylic paint and pounced it on the coaster.  It gave it a furry look too.


7.  Once dry, I painted on the face, using acrylic paint.



8.  Once dry, I mixed clear resin and poured it over the bunny.

9.  I carefully helped it to the edges.

10.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.  BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET TOO CLOSE TO THE EAR WITH YOUR LIGHTER! You might melt them.  Let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

That's it!
