Step 1: Mix resin in cup
Mix 1 part resin with 1 part hardener (must be equal parts). Stir for two minutes. Tip: If included, follow the instructions on your resin package.
Step 2: Transfer to new cup and keep mixing
Pour mixture into a new cup and stir for an additional minute.
Step 3: Pop any bubbles
To remove air bubbles, place cup into another container with hot (not boiling) water and let sit for 2 minutes. You will see the air bubbles rise to the surface and pop. You can also use a hair dryer but be careful not to melt the plastic of your cup.
Pour a thin layer of resin in each mold and then add your confetti. The darker the color of confetti, the more vibrant the color will be when your earring hardens. Push down in place with your wooden stick so that the confetti is entirely covered with resin. Tip: Position a darker piece of confetti towards the edge of each earring, this will help conceal the earring post when glued on. Let cure overnight.
Step 5: Unmold and glue earring post
Remove from the mold. Before gluing on the earring posts, look for the darkest piece of confetti so the earring post does not show through. Glue it on and let dry. You’re all done and your brand new earrings are ready to wear!
