25 SIMPLE RESIN CRAFTS THAT WILL DEFINITELY LEAVE YOU INSPIRED
SIMPLE RESIN CRAFTS
It looks like if I’m going to want to tackle this resin trend, I’m going to need to invest in some new craft tools. It’s definitely a specialized craft that will require a few new things. Here’s what I’m considering.
Resin – Shocker! You need some resin to make a resin craft. There are different types for different applications, so if you start a project, make sure you get the right stuff!
Heat Gun or Butane Torch – They help get rid of bubbles. I also saw one tutorial that used a lamp placed directly over the project so that it was getting some heat from the light bulb.
Dremel Multi Tool – I saw the Dremel multi tool used for a couple of different purposes. It was used to sand and polish the resin to get that glossy shine. It was also used as a drill in some of the jewelry tutorials I found so that the chain could be added to the pendant.
Packing Tape – I was surprised to see packing tape included in many of the smaller scale projects that I found. It helps to keep your piece from moving around and stops the resin from pouring out of the bottom/sides of your project.
Straws – This is another odd ball thing to use, but many of the tutorials called for using a straw to blow out the bubbles that might be in the project.
