I have to admit that I love working with resin. Yes it can be messy and sticky but when it goes right, the results are beyond what you would expect.
I love Blackburns jelly for two reasons; their jelly is incredible and you get to keep the cutest mason jar and use it for a cup. It holds 12 oz.
I've been collecting the jars for a while. No I don't eat as much jelly as this project would indicate. Ha ha.
You can use any jar, cup, or mug for this project. That's the best part. Half of your supplies can be found right around your house.
If you do not have a spinner, it does make this project very labor intensive. I will add some tips for those not using a spinner with the photos/videos.
Now I have become a resin snob of sorts. There are brands that are no consistent with the way they set up. It leads to all sorts of issues while curing. So I will name a brand that I use just due to having consistent results. If you do not follow the instructions all resin will have issues.
My only cost for this project is the resin as I was out when I started the jars. Again, you don't have to use the exact products I did and you will still get super results.
Find a jar, cup or mug and have fun.
I'm only giving this a cost of $50 due to wanting to show the start up cost including the spinner.
For starting up your cost will be on the higher side. Once you have a spinner and the resin the cost to make a cute container is just the cost of the container, paints, inks and glitter.
Spinners start at $20 and go into the $100s. The one I use was $20.
Resin is around $13. You can make about 40 containers, depending on size, with one set of resin.
Resin inks and pigments are all over Amazon and range from $12-$30 for a set. You can also use acrylic paints and spray paints with resin. Go crazy and be creative.
