Instructions for 2 Part Epoxy Resin
Epoxy resin comes in two parts: a resin (150g) and a hardener (50g). Mixing the resin and hardener together prompts a chemical reaction,
transforming them from a liquid into a solid. Measuring accurately and mixing thoroughly is essential to making sure your epoxy resin cures properly.
Step 1: Measure accurately epoxy resin 3A : 1B, meaning that it requires 3 part epoxy and 1 part hardener in order to catalyze and cure. Adding too much of either epoxy or hardener will alter the chemical reaction and the mixture will not cure properly.
For example 15g A to 5g B or 2 fl. oz A to 6 fl. oz B
Step 2: Slowly mix the epoxy and hardener together for at least 3 whole minutes. Scrape the sides and bottom of the container as you mix. Improperly mixed resin stuck to the sides and bottom won't be able to catalyze and therefore won't be able to cure, leaving sticky spots in your resin that just won’t harden.
Step 3: Cast and pour. If bubbles appear eliminate them after you've poured and spread the resin. A heat gun is very effective in popping surface bubbles by a quick pass over the area.
Step 4: Let your resin piece sit, covered to cure for at least 24hrs. After allowing your resin to fully cure remove it from your mold.
** Remember to always practice safety first. Wear gloves and eye wear when dealing with uncured resin. Always wash your hand thoroughly with soap after use. Keep out of reach of children and pets. **
- Resin will initially be a very thin viscosity which is perfect for casting thicker resin pieces.
Letting the resin sit for 10 mins after mixing the A + B parts lets the bubbles rise to the surface and pop easily.
- For doming, let the resin sit for 1-3 hrs to thicken to your liking. Thinner resin is harder to retain surface tension.
- You may layer your resin by letting layers semi cure between pours.
- Be creative by adding glitters, powders, resin dyes and much more!

Yes absolutely! I take custom orders for clay charms as well as custom digital files. Turn around times may vary depending on my workload. Just send me a quick message and I will give you a price quote and an estimated turn around time.
No, but they are not unbreakable. I use professional grade polymer clay and reinforce all my charms with armature wire and liquid clay. This gives them a good base and fuses all parts together. With that being said they are durable against accidental drops on the ground and normal wear and tear. Treat them as fine jewelry.
I do not recommend them for smaller children under the age 6. Small parts can be chewed off and can cause a choking hazard.
All our digital files are sent in 2 forms, JPEG and PDF. They are both 300dpi hi-resolution files. The main difference between the 2 formats is how the file is saved.
For printing purposes PDF files are great for printing at home as well as printing at a print shop. Our PDF files are formatted to be printed on a standard 8.5'' x 11'' sheet of paper. The setback is PDF files are NOT editable. Meaning, if the print shop or you needs to resize the document, most commonly bigger to account for bleeds when printing, this must be done with a JPEG file.
JPEG's are basically photo files, perfect for sharing on social media and also text messaging. They can be opened in editing software to be resized and formatted to your preference.
You can print your files at home from any printer or take your files/upload them to a local print shop. I recommend using white card stock. If you are printing at home double check your paper is the right kind paper. Paper is specifically made for either inkjet or laser printers. This prevents paper jams and also delivers the best print quality.
I also recommend always doing a print test if you are printing at home before you print a batch out. Also if you ever have a problem with the quality of prints you receive from a print shop do not hesitate to ask for them to be reprinted. Sometimes sizing may be off or their color settings may need to be adjusted. It happens and print shops are more than happy to reprint for you.
