Let Us Show You How To Make Custom Earrings
Our NEW Decorative Molds pair wonderfully with our Acrylic Glacier Resin and Hardener mixture. The options are truly endless with 21 different Molds to choose from!
To make your final piece more flexible so as to apply to curved surfaces, simply pour in your mixture of 60% resin with 40% hardener and mix well for 3 minutes. Pour into the mold and allow to dry overnight. Pop out your design and apply with super glue to your frame, furniture, or decorative object.
The recipe to make the resin very hard and inflexible would be a 1:1 ratio of resin and hardener. Measure to ensure exact mixing ratios. Your working time is 20 minutes once mixed. Your gel time is 30 minutes. Allow the surface to dry for 6-9 hours. For crafting, your through dry time is 10-14 hours. We recommend letting it cure overnight.
If you prefer using air dry clay in lieu of resin, you will notice some shrinkage and cracking. Be aware that air dry clay will not give you the detail that you can get with Resin.
Pour Mixture Into Your Choice Of Decorative Mold And Let Cure Overnight
Pop Out Your Design Then Apply Gilding Size. Simply Apply Gilding Size With An Artist Brush And Let The Solution Become Tacky (not completely dry) Before Starting Step Four
Apply Sterling Silver Leaf Over Entire Surface Area. The Silver Leaf Will Cling To The Gilding Size. Then, Brush Off Excess With An Artist Brush.
