Step by Step Guide:

  • Find a level working surface and cover it with a silicone working mat or plastic sheet.
  • Have a plastic container or box close by to cover your mould when you are done pouring your resin.

Bubble Tip!
Boil the kettle and pour some water in a bowl. Add your resin and hardener into your mixing cup (do not mix yet), put your mixing cup in the boiled water and leave it for a few seconds. You will notice as you start to stir slowly that the mixture is a lot thinner. Mix slowly until no streaks are visible. Don’t leave it in the hot water for too long as it will speed up the curing.

  • Add 5ml Hardener and 5ml Resin into your mixing cup.
  • Add a knife point of Duo Blue Purple Pearl Ex powder to your mixed resin. You can determine what you colour will look like in the mould by referring to the resin stuck to the mixing stick. If you would like the colour to be more solid you can add a bit more powder and mix through.
  • Once you are happy with your colour you are now ready create your Keyring.
  • Prop up the one side of your mould with some mixing sticks. Pour the bottom half of the mould in the dark blue colour.
  • Add 2-3 drops of PoxyPigment White to your remaining blue resin. This will give you a lighter colour to achieve the two tone effect.
  • Add the lighter blue to the top half of your mould and carefully remove the sticks used for propping the mould up. Your mould will not be filled to the top as we want to add the vinyl decal.

Mould Tip!
Be careful not to use a flame or heat gun on a concentrate spot on your mould for too long. Quickly pass over the resin with your lighter. The silicone is not made to be used on high eat and will there for melt if heated too much, causing it to stick to your resin. The resin will not unmould from your silicone mould and you will end up losing your mould and your resin art work.

  • Cover your work with your box or container so dust does not settle on your resin whilst curing.
  • Check up on your resin every 5 minutes and pop any bubbles that has come to the surface. After 20 min your resin will now be thickening up and you can now leave it to fully cure.
  • After 8-12 hours your resin will now be set and ready for the next step.

You can leave your item in the mould or remove it for the next step.

Keep in mind that the hole needs to be filled with a stopper to keep the resin from running through it in the doming process.

Adding the Vinyl:

  • Wipe the resin surface with some clear alcohol.
  • Scrape the top of your vinyl decal with a card, this will allow the vinyl to adhere to the clear film covering it.
  • Remove the clear film slowly allowing the vinyl to come with it.
  • Place the decal on the resin surface and press it in place with your fingers. You can use your card to make sure that it is adhering to the resin.
  • Slowly roll back the clear tape on top, allowing just the vinyl to be left over.

Following the same mixing procedure as before, mix 5ml clear resin.

Add just enough clear resin to the keyring to cover the top and add a nice dome finish. Use your lighter to pop any surface bubbles and cover your resin to protect it from dust whilst curing.

Add some keyring fittings to finish.
