How to Work with Epoxy Resin:
Step 1: Preparation: Before you start, you will need the following materials: epoxy resin, catalyst (hardener), color pigments (optional), small objects to embed (optional), molds for cups or bowls, mixing sticks, latex gloves, and waxed paper or plastic to protect your work surface.
Step 2: Mixing of Epoxy Resin: Use latex gloves to protect your hands. In a container, mix the epoxy resin and the catalyst. If you want to add color to your cup or bowl, you can mix pigments into the resin at this time.
Step 3: Filling the Mold: Carefully pour the mixed resin into your mold. If you are embedding objects in your cup or bowl, you can place them in the mold before pouring the resin.
Step 4: Curing of the Resin: Allow the resin to cure according to time. Avoid moving the mold during this time to avoid marks or imperfections.
Step 5: Demolding: Once the resin has completely cured, you can remove it from the mold. Now you have a unique cup or bowl made with epoxy resin.
To decorate the cups you can use a variety of materials:
Pigments: Pigments can be mixed with the resin to give color to your cups.
Decorative elements: You can embed elements such as shells, stones, sand, dried flowers in the resin to personalize your cups.
Glitter: Glitter can add a touch of shine to your cups.
Fimos: Fimos are small pieces of polymer clay that can be used to create designs
on your cups.
Acrylic paint: Acrylic paint can be used to paint designs on the cup before applying the resin.
Inks of different colors: Inks can be used to create color effects in the resin.
