Step 1: Make sure to protect your work area and to put on gloves.
Step 2: Add equal parts of epoxy resin & epoxy resin hardener to a disposable cup.
Step 3: With the stir stick, mix the equal parts for 5 minutes (timing will depend on brand of resin).
Step 4: Now is the time to add in any color mica powder to your resin mixture. Once you add in the color mica powder you’d like mix together for 2 minutes.
Step 5: Carefully take your mixture and slowly pour about a 1/8-1/4 inch deep into the SiliconeZone Baking Cups or SiliconeZone Number Molds. The depth in the Baking Cups will depend on how thick you want to round base to be.
Step 6: Depending on the resin kit you’ve chosen the resin may have to cure up to 24 hours or less. Make sure to look at your brands instructions to see how long the resin will take to cure.
Step 7: Once the resin is all set, it’s time to pop out the pieces.
Step 8: After removing all of your resin molds, you are now ready to assemble.
Step 9: For the Keychain: Carefully screw in the end of the keychain to the side of your base. For the Car Tag: Cut out a 2.25 inch paper tag with hole. Then hot glue this new paper tag to the back of the resin disc. (Cricut® offers templates for different had designs)
Step 10: Hot glue the new resin numbers to the base disc created in the Backing Cups. After this is dry, hot glue the graduation caps to the sides of the resin numbers.
Let these items dry and then enjoy!
