Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft. Some of my favorite resin projects have been resin jewelry, like my resin dipped earrings and my statement earrings. For this project, I started with a simple silicone mold in the shape of a pyramid. I knew the narrow point on the top would make the perfect place to slide your ring. This beautiful resin ring holder uses EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy and alcohol ink to create a unique design.
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR RESIN RING HOLDER:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- Alcohol Inks in the colors of your choice
- Pyramid Mold
- 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.

Hi Amber, thank you for this post!
I find it very difficult to properly determine the amount of ink I’m supposed to use. I usually try to follow the instructions on the packaging, but they’re never consistent between colors and it gets worse once you start mixing different brands.
Do you usually use the same amount for all colors?
I agree it is very tricky! I did use the same about (just 2 tiny drops!) but you can see the colors didn’t turn out evenly! The blue and purple were both dark so in the final result you can definitely see more of them than the pink! The best tip I can give is to use as LITTLE as possible!!
Hi! How much resin solution does one pyramid take for each mold?
hi! each mold is different, but mine took between 3-4 ounces 🙂
