Create a beautiful resin suncatcher with metallic confetti and EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy!
Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft! I’m drawn to all things colorful (as you may have noticed with my last resin craft – my DIY Resin Clipboard) and this project includes lots of pretty colors as well! I mean, who doesn’t love confetti!? The beautiful spring weather has be spending a lot more time outdoors, and this project is perfect for decorating on your patio. Just hang it anywhere it can catch the light!
Supplies Needed for Resin Suncatcher:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- Mold Release & Conditioner
- Metallic/foil confetti
- Circular Lid
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
Step 1: Prepare your mold. For this project, I used two metal lids that were the prefect size circles for me. The first thing I did was apply Mold Release & Conditioner. (I took a chance with the metal lids – plastic would be better – but the project turned out great! I do have a trick I’ll share below.)
Step 2: Next, 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.
Step 4: After you’ve added your embellishments, mix up another batch of EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy and pour on.
Step 5: After you’ve allowed enough time for the resin to cure, you can remove from the molds. I tried a metal mold for this project and found the trick to getting the resin suncatchers out is the FREEZER! I put them in the freezer for a few minutes and POP they came right out!
I hung my resin suncatchers on the fence in my backyard. The EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy creates a beautifully clear finish and the metallic confetti catches the sun and shines brillantly while twirling around near my hanging basket of flowers!
