This special resin starts as a liquid and hardens into a permanent and durable piece of solid resin. Resin kits make casting resin a practical way to make your own jewellery, decorative objects and clear tiles. Create a simple tile or an entire set of tiles to decorate your home.

  1. 1

    Spray a silicone tile mould with mould release spray and set aside.

  2. 2

    Mix 10 drops resin hardener per 28.4gr. casting resin in a disposable measuring cup. Stir the mixture with a craft stick for 30 seconds.

  3. 3

    Add liquid resin pigment slowly to the mixture. Use a small amount for a light shade of colour and a large amount for a darker shade. Stop adding the pigment once you reach the shade you prefer.

  4. 4

    Pour the resin mixture in the mould until it is full.

  5. 5

    Blow air over the resin's surface to remove bubbles. The carbon dioxide in your breath will cause them to burst. Let the tile sit for 2 to 3 hours.

  6. 6

    Pull the sides of the silicone mould away from the tile and lift the tile out with your fingers to remove it.

  7. 7

    Sand rough edges with a metal file.

Tips and warnings

  • Ventilate your workspace to avoid fume inhalation.
  • Wear a painter's mask and latex gloves while working with resin to protect yourself.
