I found this big gem silicone mold online and thought it would make a beautiful paperweight. I mixed the resin, according to the package directions.
Big Glam Resin Gem Paperweight DIY
Glam up your desk with the big DIY resin gem! It's really easy to make! For full directions, materials and video tutorial, go to my blog post: https://craftklatchwithmona.blogspot.com/2017/10/big-glam-resin-gem-paperweight-diy.html Resin is such a fun medium to work with and the projects turn out beautifully!
I mixed pigment powder into the resin.
I made sure to mix it well.
I poured the resin mixture into the mold.
I took my lighter and popped the bubbles. You will want to go back a couple of times and pop the bubbles again. I let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.
Once cured, I removed it from the mold.
Now I have this beautiful resin gem. The metallic pigment powders give it extra depth. It is super glam!
That's it! Remember: Life's to short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
