DIY Faux Sea Glass Dragonfly How To

I tried my dragonfly mold with bold colors in my DIY Dragonfly Embellishment project, but I wanted to give the mold another go. I wanted to try a more subdued sea glass dragonfly look.

Sea Glass Dragonfly Directions

Step 1

Prepare your resin according to the package directions. You only need a little. Mix in a small amount of blue India ink.

You don’t want to make it too dark. I used a popsicle stick and stuck it into the India ink and then put it in the resin. I didn’t want to chance pouring the ink into the resin and going too dark.

Step 2

Carefully drip or pour the blue into the dragonfly wings and body. Some will leak out to the trim area.  You can go further and fill that up too. It’s up to you. Allow it to cure for 12 hours.

Step 3

Make more resin and mix in some white India ink and pour it into the mold. Allow it to cure a minimum of 12 hours before removing it from the mold.

That’s it! The blue is subtle, but you can see it better in person than in the picture.

  1. Hello,
    Beautiful dragonfly! I am new to resin and am trying to create the faux sea glass look which is how I discovered your video. Do you think it was the ink that gave it the frosted effect? Or the matte finish of the mold? Or the brand of resin? I'm thinking it is the matte finish of the mold coupled with the translucent coloring from the ink. But I don't know why it is frosty instead of just matte. That's the part I am trying to figure out. Any insight please?
