Step 1: Prepare your mold. Use two metal lids that were perfect size circles. Apply mold release and conditioner.

Step 2: Prepare the EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy. Start by mixing EQUAL parts of the Hardener and the Resin. Stir for two minutes (be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides) then pour from the first cup into a second and mix with a new stir stick for another minute. Once ready, pour directly into your lid and fill about halfway up.

Step 3: Let sit for about 20 minutes, then you can add in your embellishments!

Step 5: After you’ve allowed enough time for the resin to cure, you can remove from the molds.

I hung my resin suncatchers on the fence in my backyard. The EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy creates a beautifully clear finish and the metallic confetti catches the sun and shines brilliantly while twirling around near my hanging basket of flowers!

    Very cool. Great instructions. They would cost a pretty penny in the store. Look amazing.
