This was an amazing exploration into color matching using my favorite resin colorants in teardrop molds. Although these examples are small castings, they are meant to be scaled up for any size resin art or craft project, or for any type of resin jewelry making where you'd like to match a specific color, gemstone, flower, or any reference at all. Use this resin color guide to make wedding jewelry and wedding favors, to personalize gifts, or to produce sellable resin charms, pendants, earrings, or other pieces.

I've focused on the most popular birthstones, and have listed them by month to keep this simple. I've also listed the zodiac cut-off dates to be sure you have the right birthstone for the person you have in mind. These start and end dates can also vary by source, so be sure to double-check if your person is on the cusp.
