Create super fun, fillable resin charms with EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy!
Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft. I recently bought some crazy cool new molds that I couldn’t WAIT to try out with EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy! The molds create shapes in two pieces with a small opening and there’s a third tiny piece you use to “plug” after you’ve cast and filled your project. These three parts allow you to make fillable resin “shaker” charms!
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR FILLABLE RESIN CHARMS:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- Shaker Molds
- Glitter and embelishments
- Water dropper and water
- Glue (I used E6000)
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
Step 1: 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.
Step 2: Once your resin in ready, pour into each piece of your mold.
Step 4: Next, connect the 2 parts carefully with glue and then wait for it to fully dry.
Step 6: After the glue dries, add glitter and embellishments inside your resin charms.
Step 7: Finally, seal your resin charm by gluing the last small piece in place.
This was my first try at creating these fillable resin charms, but I learned a few things for next time:
- You can cast the “back” piece in any color and and cast the front piece in clear resin for an even cooler design!
- Fill with oil instead of water to help the glitter float better!
- Fill with beads and all sorts of fun items – not just glitter!
- These make really fun key chains or an interesting addition to your cell phone case!
