How about a shiny ring of silver and gold to top your resin castings?!  I cast this resin trinket dish in layers using leftovers from other projects I had going and I love how it turned out! Using the best resin crafting supplies for a heart shaped jewelry holder yielded surprising results and a gift I can't wait to give! 

NOTE: Your temporary tattoos may be different than mine. If your temporary tattoos look better with the back side showing, you can place them inside your casting (instead of applying them to the back), then cover the designs with a thin layer of clear resin. Another resin casting tip!

In this resin casting tutorial I skip the first two steps which are basic resin pours into my heart shaped dish mold. I wanted to get right into how to use temporary tattoos backed by Black Resin Colorant to make high-contrast castings. Layering resin in molds this way helps add dimension to your projects, and the many styles available makes for lots of design possibilities. Brilliant Resin is the best resin for casting, and it's the safest epoxy you'll find, and our tools are designed to make your creative experiences more fun! Make sure to grab the best resin supplies for jewelry making and crafts and have lots of fun creating!
