Announcing: Envirotex Jewelry Resin!

You may notice a little bit of a citrus theme in these pieces.
These bezels are helping me to launch a new resin developed for jewelers!
Hold on to your hats friends...this resin is exactly what you've been waiting for!
ETI is launching Jewelry Resin.
And guess what?  It has a citrus scent!

A special delivery box arrived for me last week and I have been testing and experimenting with the new product.  I LOVE IT!!!  Jewelry Resin will be launching in Michael's stores in December.  I will have a lot more to say about this amazing new addition to the Environmental Technology Inc. product family.  For now, here is what you need to know.


EnviroTex Jewelry Resin 2 oz. blister pack with measure/mix tools.

Professional results are easy to achieve with EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin!  This product adds depth and crystal clear clarity like no other.  It visually enhances the surface on which it is applied, resulting in brighter, deeper and more intense colors.  

EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin has amazing bubble release.  

It is easy and fun to use and has a pleasing citrus scent!
(just during the mixing stage) 

Formulated for high resistance to light exposure and UV rays from the sun.  

When cured, the resin coating is extremely durable, waterproof, heat & chemical resistant.  EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin cures to a soft cure in 12 hours, medium cure in 24 hours and hard cure in 48 hours.

Crystal Clear
Heirloom Quality
Professional Jeweler’s Grade
Enough product to fill 20 large deep bezels
One thick coat equals 50 coats of varnish!
Instructions and tools included with kit.

  1. I love your blog! I just found it when I was looking for info on envirotex as I had a complete disaster with resin (a different type),about 6 months, ago and after ruining around 15 bezels which STILL haven't dried heh, I ran scared of the whole thing and made other jewellery with polymer clay/watch parts. I'm selling well online now but was determined to get that resin right. Your blog has helped me so much, I have 20 bezels ready so fingers crossed! Huge comment here I'll shut up eh? Michelle :)

  2. Sounds interesting! I've yet to actually use any resin, but this I might have to try.

  4. Hello All Consuming! Let me say hello and just say one thing - don't be scared of resin! Your first pieces should be just for fun and ideally you work in something inexpensive like a bottlecap before you use good bezels! Just be extra careful that you mix exact 1 to 1 ratios and there is no reason why you shouldn't have success! Keep me posted!

  5. Looking forward to seeing how this works for you. I will be interested to know how it compares to Envirotex Lite or EasyCast.

  7. I am new to resin crafts, am wondering, can resin be poured over old glossy photos.
    Thanks, Mona

  8. Hi Mona, yes, many many people use resin for that reason. I do encourage you to do some research about protecting images etc and you'll find a lot of great posts and how-tos on this blog. My best suggestion is to make sure you take the time to experiment on papers and items of no value before you jump in and use sentimental or important ephemera. There is a resin learning curve.

  9. Is this product non-toxic? I agree, resin is nothing to be afraid of, and there are many types out there that you can buy. You can have curing success with any of them, none of them are a bad product. Just a few things to watch for: is the product in date? Out of date resin might be a problem, even if you never opened it. Are you mixing it in the correct ratio? Is your work environment humid or too cold? These factors all have bearing on your success. You can re-cure resin; just mix another batch and put a thin re-coat over the top. If it's a nice sunny warm day you can also take it outside to cure, so long as you don't think dust, etc will blow into it. Another quick solution is Gel du Soleil sun cure resin over top, very thinly, if you have a tacky pour. Cures hard as nails in about 20-30 min and tacky gone! Gel du Soleil is always on my work table in the event something stays tacky. It cures outside in direct sun or in UV light.

  10. Hello B'sue, I don't blog about other resin's on this site..I only write about the products I am using and I started this blog by reporting how much I love ETI's product line. In my opinion, there is no such thing as a non toxic resin, but different companies are calling their products "a resin"...so I can only speak to our two part epoxy. But yes cured, ETI's resin is non toxic. ETI has all their information online and always complete Material Safety Data Sheets. They go above and beyond in that regard.
    I get asked all the time about UV resins...I have tried them and have not been happy with the results compared to Envirotex Lite. UV resins are much softer and I prefer a glass like hard surface. Also, I attempted to teach UV resins in a class this spring....and the UV resin had completely hardened in it's bottle even though I stored it properly in preparation for the class. You have so many wonderful videos and teaching materials on-line! I hope you get a chance to try out this new resin soon! And thank you for visiting the blog!

  11. I am finding that the resin has a bunch of very tiny bubbles that dont seem to go away, that is causing a cloudy effect. Is this normal or is there any suggestions that you may have to reduce or eliminate this from occurring. I am fairly new at working with resin. Thank you in advance for any advice you may have.

    1. Try not to over mix and introduce alot of air bubbles whipping the resin. Also, be sure the resin is not too cold when you mix it. Most of these tips are covered in the video and on the blog.

  12. I have used Enviro Tex Jewelry resin on many materials and must say I am totally pleased with the results. Good luck to all of you who use it for the first time. MOST IMPORTANT: mix 1 to 1 as advised and cover your work with a dome to keep the dust from sticking to it, or hair, etc. I use the bottom of a large container turned up side down and it allows the resin to cure without any particles sticking to it. I just love it.
