This is the resin I used for this project:
FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F. 

Here is a quick video tutorial:


1.  I gathered my materials.  I wanted to try out these paint markers with resin.

2.  I used the markers to color directly on the mold.

3.  I used all colors (except the metallic) on both cavities that I was using.  One I did scribbles and the other I did little polka dots.

4.  I mixed a small amount of resin and poured it in the cavities I colored.

5.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let it cure 12 hours.

6.  When the resin cured, I did the same markings on the layer resin.

7.  I added another layer of resin.

8.  I popped the bubbles and let it cure.

9.  I did the same markings on the resin.

10.  I mixed resin and added a little bit of resin pigment...

 ...and mixed in white pigment powder.

11.  I poured the mixture into the cavities.

12.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

Once cured, I removed them from the molds.  They have a lot of depth and they are colorful!

That's it!  I hope you like them!

Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
