Succulents are still hot in home decor. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still make succulents part of your home decor. I will show you how to make a resin succulent embellished frame using EnviroTex Lite resin and a silicone mold.
- EnviroTex Lite
- Mixing cups and stir sticks
- Resin pigments
- Succulent silicone mold
- Craft frame
- Craft paint
- Hot glue gun
- Hot Glue
Begin by mixing a very small (1-2 ounces) of resin according to the package directions. Be sure to use the two-step mixing process to ensure the resin is fully mixed.
After the resin is mixed, separate the mixed resin into small mixing cups. Add Castin’ Craft pigments to color the resin in whatever colors you would like your succulents to be. I mixed shades of green and purple for my succulents.
Use a stir stick to drizzle a small amount of the first colored resin into each segment of the mold. This will make the tips of the succulent leaves a different color than the base of the succulents.
Next, fill the mold with the second color of resin. Because of the nature of this silicone mold, bubbles may get trapped within the mold. Tap the mold on your work surface to draw as many bubbles to the surface as possible.
Use a long arm lighter to gently pop the bubbles that rise to the surface. Cover the mold and let the resin cure completely.
When the resin is cured, stretch the silicone mold to release the finished piece.
Since the silicone mold is reusable, you can make as many of these resin succulents as you need! Experiment with different resin pigments to create variety with your embellishments.
I painted an inexpensive craft wood frame with two shades of purple craft paint. Then I used a high heat glue gun to adhere the resin succulents to the corner of the frame.
