Make a Resin Pendant from Dirty Pour Paint Skins
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft with an awesome resin pendant craft. Dirty Pour, Acrylic Pouring, Flo Painting, Paint Pouring, Marbling, or just Pour painting are all names for the same painting craze. It involves thinning paint, adding a couple drops of silicone lubricant, layering it in a cup and pouring all over a canvas, tray or other object. It drips all down the sides and has amazing patterns of layered paint.
The canvas is amazing…but the plastic the paint drips on is miraculous as well. Let’s upcycle some of those paint skins into another work of art…the resin pendant.
Paint Pour Skin (dried paint)
Disposable worksurface, gloves, mixing cups and stirring sticks.
Begin by mixing one part resin and one part hardener together for 2 minutes. Then pour resin into the second cup and use the second stick to stir it for 1 more minute. You will only need a small amount of mixed resin.
First, set it on some stirring sticks or cardboard to keep the pendant base level. Then use the paintbrush to gently push the resin to all the edges of the bezel. Finally let the resin dry and cure overnight.
