Get your mold. Make sure it’s clean from all dust and lint.
1
Mix resin, add glitter and pour into the mold. (If you need help with resin, video coming soon)
2
This is most IMPORTANT step. You will OVERFILL your mold slightly. You are creating the “backing”.
3
Demold it. You see how the eyes, nose & mouth have a back to them? Place your 2nd glitter here.
4
Cut your film to cover the front of the skull. Use UV resin to adhere film. (All areas under film.)
5
Cure your piece under UV light for around 2 mins. Your UV resin will be hard and not tacky.
6
If you want to add liquid to make the glitter float. You will drill a hole on the sides.
7
I suggest a very small drill bit. Drill hole, use blunt tip needle with baby oil and fill ‘eye’ up.
8
Use the UV resin again to close your hole up so no liquid can leak out.
9
Mix epoxy resin again and place a nice think clear “doming” layer on top. Cure for 8-12 hrs.
10
Once your top layer is cured. You now have a shaker keychain. 👏🏻
