Resin paper weights are amazing! Each one is an original one-of-a-kind piece of ART. Since I have been using alcohol inks in some projects lately, I thought I would see how they worked for a paper weight.
The results are a transparent paper weight when looking through it.
Spray mold with mold release.
Measure out equal parts (1 ounce each) of EasyCast resin and hardener.
Then, stir together for 2 minutes. Pour mixture into a second cup and stir for another minute.
Pour resin into mold.
Add a couple drops of the alcohol ink.
Gently stir the alcohol ink.
Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that rise to the top.
Let set for 24 hours.
Remove from the mold.
I love how transparent it seems in the light, From this photo you can see that it looks a bit layered.
From this photo you can see that it appears a bit darker. What is cool about this paper weight is that it looks different from every angle.
Give this a try and enjoy!
