Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft. I’m kicking off the new year by getting our home organized. I wanted a way to corral the soap bottles around the sink and found the perfect mold! I also wanted to try polycolor resin powder and it turned out beautifully!
The hardest part of this project was picking the colors! I couldn’t decide (or narrow it down!) so I let my husband choose. The Polycolor Resin Powder creates a gorgeous finish and I’m pumped to use these in future projects!
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR RESIN SOAP BOTTLE TRAY
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 the resin is ready, pour into two separate cups. ETI EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy has a 20-30 minute work time which should give you plenty of time to mix up your colors!
Step 3: Add in a tiny amount of polycolor resin powder and stir thoroughly! Start by adding a tiny amount – a little goes long way! You can gradually add more until you see the colors you want!
Step 4: Pour gently both colors at the same time to fill the mold.
Step 5: Allow the resin to cure for 24 – 72 hours (climate dependent) then you can remove from the mold! Your completed soap dish will be super durable and have a gorgeous high-gloss finish!
I hope this project inspires you to create your own custom soap bottle tray! Let your creativity run wild and be sure to tag us if you share your creations online! #MadewithETI
