Make Your Daughter an Epoxy Resin Ring with These Easy to Follow Steps

Epoxy-ResinEpoxy resin is a strong and durable material that is perfect for making jewellery at home. The resin is durable, does not break, and can be customized with paint to enhance the beauty of it.

If you want to surprise your daughter, consider making her a beautiful and personalized epoxy resin ring with the instructions below.

 

1. First, you want to gather a couple of tea lights and remove them from their metal casing. Pull the wick out from the bottom of them and then place them back into the case.

2. Place the tea lights on top of a burner on your stove and turn the burner on. Allow the wax to melt until it is completely clear and then carefully remove from the burner. Set the tea lights aside to cool.

3. Once the wax is cool, before it hardens, use an apple core or other similar tool and place into the center of the ring to make a finger hole. Place the entire tea light, with the apple core still in the center, into a cup of cold water. Remove the tea light from the water and pull the apple core and center of the tea light out.

4. Remove the casing around the candle and sand down the ring to make it even all around. You will carve your design into the ring at this time as well.

5. In a bowl, mix together some caulk and corn flour until well combined. Then, place the wax ring into the tea light case and cover with the mixture. Cover and allow the mixture to set for 2 hours.

6. Cut the mold open horizontally and remove the wax pieces that will now be broken. You should have a mold of the ring you made – one top piece and one bottom piece.

7. Mix the epoxy resin solution and add in any colours you want. When ready, pour the resin into both sides of the mold. Press the mold together and allow it to sit overnight to fully cure.
