Resin paper weights are amazing! Each one is an original one-of-a-kind piece of ART. Since I have been using alcohol inks in some projects lately, I thought I would see how they worked for a paper weight.
The results are a transparent paper weight when looking through it.
Materials for Resin Paperweights with Alcohol Ink
Spray mold with mold release.
Measure out equal parts (1 ounce each) of EasyCast resin and hardener.
Then, stir together for 2 minutes. Pour mixture into a second cup and stir for another minute.
Pour resin into mold.
Add a couple drops of the alcohol ink.
Gently stir the alcohol ink.
Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that rise to the top.
Let set for 24 hours.
Remove from the mold.
I love how transparent it seems in the light, From this photo you can see that it looks a bit layered.
From this photo you can see that it appears a bit darker. What is cool about this paper weight is that it looks different from every angle.
Give this a try and enjoy!
