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.
  • Add 5ml Hardener and 5ml Resin into your mixing cup and mix as per the mixing guide.

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.

  • To achieve the pink colour we used a knife point of Magenta PearlEx and a drop of PoxyPigment Red. We also made a set using our Pink Gold Chunky Glitter.
  • Once you are happy with your colour you are now ready to create your heart shapes.
  • When filling your mould, pour enough resin to reach the brim of the mould to get a level finish.
  • Taking a toothpick and scraping it along the edges of the mould helps loosen any bubbles stuck in the corners and bring them to the surface allowing you to pop them with your lighter.
  • You might see some small surface bubbles forming on the surface of the resin, not to stress you can pop them with a lighter.

Mould Tip!
Be careful not to use a flame or heat gun on a concentrated 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 heat and will therefore 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 artwork.

  • 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 you will be able to remove your hearts from the mould. Place it on a flat plastic sheet to cure further for the next 12 hours.

Finishing your stud earrings:

  • You can use our Zhanlida glue to stick the stud backing to your now set resin heart.
  • Use a tweezer to hold your stud and apply a small amount of glue to the stud.
  • Press the stud to the resin heart and place aside to dry.
  • Once the glue has dried, you can add the silicone stud backing.

Top tip! Press your studs into a sponge to stop them from rolling around.
