Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft, sharing an especially fun resin craft. Sparkly rainbow making crystals are wonderful! This fun craft makes it possible to make as many gorgeous crystals as desired…enough to fill a treasure box! They appear identical to real quartz crystals and reflect the light in the same manner. Learn how to make resin crystals using EasyMold and EasyCast resin. Let’s get started!
This is a 2 phase process. First making the mold of the crystals and then making the resin crystals.
- EasyMold Silicone Rubber
- Small plastic container that fits the crystals
- 1 or more actual crystals (could be formed out of clay or wood)
- Hot Glue/Gun
- Mold Conditioner and Release Spray
- EasyCast Resin
- Stirring Sticks
- Mixing Cups
- Disposable gloves and worksurface
Spray the inside of the container with the Mold Release Spray gently. Next, place some hot glue on one facet of the crystal.
Now it’s time to mix up the EasyMold Silicone Rubber. Read and follow the directions carefully.
Trim the top of the silicone rubber mold with a small pair of scissors. Then mix up the EasyCast Resin. A good way to know how much to mix up is to fill the mold with water and then empty the water into a measured cup…then mix up that amount. Mix the EasyCast resin in the 2 phase process according to the directions.
These resin crystals are stunning! No need to worry about bubbles, those add character and realism to each crystal. They reflect sunlight like a prism. Now you know how to make resin crystals–what will you do with them?
