What Is Resin Art?

Resin art is a type of art that uses resin as the medium. Resin is a type of synthetic polymer that is liquid at room temperature but hardens when it is exposed to air. Resin art can be used to create a variety of different effects, and it is a popular choice for both artists and craftspeople. Resin art is created by mixing resin with a variety of different materials, such as pigments, dyes, and fillers. 

It is often used to create jewellery, sculptures, and other decorative objects. However, it can also be used for more functional purposes, such as creating countertops, tabletops, and other surfaces. Resin art is a popular choice for many artists and craftspeople.

  2. Take a cup and place it on the weighing scale.
  3. Now, take the Resin and Hardener [check the ratio on it] For example, in the Resin area
  4. Resin and Hardener have a 2:1 ratio. [2 times Resin and 1-time Hardener]
  5. Take appropriate grams of Resin And Hardener (for example, I think 60 gms of resin and Hardener will be sufficient for the heart-shaped mould. Thus, according to the ratio calculate, 40gms of Resin and 20gms of Hardener]
  6. Now switch on the weighing machine, pour 40gms of resin first and 20gms of Hardener.
  7. Mix it well; see to it that there are no threads.
  8. Now, plan how you want your keychain to be. accordingly, pour small portions of resin into different cups. [I want my keychain to have flowers only so I will not segregate the resin in different cups and if you want gold flakes, take a small sheet of gold into a different cup and pour resin and mix it]
  9. Put a small portion of resin in the mould and then put the flower/flakes/pigments. Cover your artwork
