Butterfly Wing Resin Earrings DIY
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing a simple resin craft today. Butterfly wings are uniquely gorgeous. This is an especially perfect pair of earrings for Spring. They are easy to make and require no butterfly to create them. Make a pair of faux Monarch wings earrings for the perfect Spring accessories.
- Envirotex Lite Pour-On Resin
- Measuring Cups, Stirring Sticks and Disposable Gloves
- Printed Monarch on Vellum Cardstock
- Tiny Hole Punch or Large Needle
- Earring Hooks
- Jewelry Pliers
- Non stick surface like Teflon to work on
- Old Paintbrush
Begin by printing this monarch off on vellum cardstock paper with an inkjet printer (toner not necessary). Regular cardstock can be used too but will not look as ethreal.
Now mix up a tiny bit of Envirotex Lite into the mixing cups. Follow directions precisely. Pour about a “pea” sized amount of resin and a “pea” sized amount of hardener for one set of earrings. I mixed up 1/2 teaspoon of each in my small mixing cups and had enough left over to coat a painted rock the size of a softball! Stir in one cup for 2 minutes, then transfer the resin to the second cup and stir with a second stick for 1 minute.
Then use a straw to blow on any bubbles that have formed.
