I started working with clear epoxy resin for crafts  this year after months of trying to think of a crafty project I can do at home to start my own little side business. I had seen lots of videos of people making beautiful crystal epoxy resin pieces and wanted to have a go myself!

My mum actually helped me get the full works to start up which included craft resins 1L resin.
It was so easy to use especially as a beginner and the work time was brilliant, it sets crystal clear with next to no micro bubbles which gives better clarity.

I started off with keyrings which began to sell almost instantly, then I moved on to coasters and Mothers Day items.

Now I am making personalised items using photos and I have even set someone's cats tooth in a little heart!

Craft Resin is so versatile and you can make so many beautiful unique items with it, it kept me occupied for 2 months during lockdown too!

Some little tips for you if you start to work of art craft resin....

1) always use silicone mats to work on!
2) wear gloves!! I made this mistake and I couldn't get the stuff off my hands!
3) allow your pieces to set on a completely flat surface
4) always fill to the top of your moulds
