Create beautiful DIY resin notebook covers using a silicone mold, EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy, and acrylic paint.
Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin project! Can you believe it’s already August?? Back to school is just around the corner! That means it’s time for new school supplies! Not headed back to school? Well you still could use some new office supplies! Let’s make a super cute DIY resin notebook that’s perfect for taking notes in your new class or jotting down to-do lists for work!
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR DIY RESIN NOTEBOOK:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- Acrylic Paint in the color of your choice
- Notebook Mold
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
- Notebook Paper
- Notebook Rings
First, prepare the EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy. This is a multi-step process so don’t start mixing until you are ready to do the whole process from beginning to end!
Start by mixing EQUAL parts of the Hardener and the Resin.
Stir for two minutes (be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides) then pour from the first cup into a second and mix with a new stir stick for another minute.
Once your mixture is ready, add in a few drops of acrylic paint then stir.
Pour slowly into your mold – taking care not to cover the holes on the left.
After about 20 minutes you may see bubbles appear on the surface of the resin – you can use a butane torch to pop these or simply breathe on it like I did! It’s the CO2 in your breath that releases the bubbles – not the heat!
