Resin Paper Weight with Alcohol Ink

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.


Project Instructions: 
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!
