Here are some tips that can help you:


    1. Choose the right colors: To create shades of colors that resemble the sea, it is important to choose the right colors. Shades of blue and green are ideal for this purpose. You can mix different shades of blue and green to create a more realistic effect.

       

    2. Add pigments: To create more intense color tones, you can add pigments to the resin. Pigments can be of different colors and allow you to create a wide variety of shades.

       

    3. Add glitter: To create a glitter effect on your resin piece, you can add glitter or mica. These materials reflect light and create a shimmering effect that resembles the glitter of the sea.

       

    4. Create layers: To create a more realistic effect, you can create layers of different shades of color. Start with a layer of light color and add layers of darker colors to create a depth effect.

       

    5. Experiment: Resin is a very versatile material that allows you to experiment with different techniques and materials. Don't be afraid to experiment and try different combinations of colors and materials to create a unique effect.

       

    6. Sand or shells: Adding sand or shells to resin can create a textured effect that resembles the beach. You can mix the sand or shells with the resin before pouring it into the mold.
