Step by step guide

TIP – Watch the video further down the page for guidance on these steps.

  1. Tape
    Take a piece of resin tape and cut it to size. Secure the tape sticky side up with some Sellotape to keep it in place.
  2. Secure your bezel
    Take your jewellery bezel and firmly press it down on your resin tape. You need to make sure it is firmly placed or you will have resin run out of the sides.

    If you are in doubt about how well it is secured, you can unstick your take from your work surface and turn the resin tape upside down. You should not see any gaps between the bezel and your tape.
  3. Add your resin
    Squeeze your UV Resin slowly in to your bezel. Make sure your resin touches all sides. A toothpick or fine stick can be helpful here.
  4. Settle
    Let your resin settle for a few minutes to allow any bubbles to come to the surface. You can pop bubbles with a toothpick or gently move a long neck lighter or crafting heat gun over your piece, just for a few seconds and then let settle for a minute again.
  5. Add your flower
    Using tweezers, gently pick up your flower and add it to your bezel. Very gently push your flower down to release any bubbles underneath.
    Let it settle again for a minute and check for bubbles. Do not pass heat over your flower. It may be flammable or burn.
  6. Cure
    Place your UV light over your piece. Your light will come with it’s own instructions and there are different strengths of lights out of there. I use the JDiction UV Resin Light and set my lamp to be on for 120 seconds at a time.
    You may need to have your light run 2-3 times, this will depend on the size of your piece. You can check if your piece is cured by gently pressing with your stick.
  7. Top coat
    Once your happy with your base, add a clear top coat of UV resin and set again with your UV light.
  8. Cure bottom
    As a extra step, I like to keep my bezel on the tape and turn it over and hold it under the light for another 2 minutes. Just to be certain that it has set right through.
  9. Remove
    Now you can take your bezel off your tape. Try doing this slowly to ensure you don’t have any resin sticking to your resin. If this does happen though, don’t worry – it should be quite easy to take off and if you have any sticky residue then you can use some isopropyl alcohol.
  10. Finish
    Finally, you can thread your chain in to your charm and enjoy your piece.
