- EnviroTex Jewelry Resin
- Castin’Craft Opaque Pigment in Red
- EasyCast Resin Jewelry Molds
- Castin’Craft Mold Release/Conditioner
- Stir sticks
- Measuring cups
- Letter beads
- Necklace bail
- Jewelry glue
Spray your mold with the release/conditioner and allow to dry completely. Then mix your resin according to the package directions. You can then add your opaque pigment to make it red.
Pour the mixed resin into your molds but don’t fill them all the way to the top. Wait 20 to 30 minutes until the resin has set up slightly and is the consistency of thick cream. TIP: Leave a little resin in your mixing cup so that you can test it without bothering your molds. Once your resin has set slightly, drop your letter beads into the desired locations. They will sink slightly but float some so that you have a pendant where you can see the letters but not the beads themselves.
Pop any bubbles that rise to the top then put your entire mold on a flat surface and allow your resin to cure overnight. Then remove the hearts from the mold. Apply a necklace bail on the back of each heart with some jewelry adhesive. Allow to set up before adding to a chain.
Then your heart necklace is ready to wear or even to give as a gift.
Perhaps someone special needs a gift for Valentine’s Day this year!
This heart necklace is easy to mold and to let that special person know that you care. Once you master this technique, you can make a wide variety of jewelry by molding resin!
