2 Gorgeous Resin Snowlake Ideas

Winter, with its stunning white carpet of snow, calls for appropriate decorations around the home to celebrate its beauty. In this case, what else can be better decorations than snowflakes? Here, you’ll learn how to make charming snowflake decorations.

#1: The tranquil blue of the ocean

This snowflake piece is made by IntoResin artists. It features a serene ocean blue as its primary hue, excluding a soft and romantic charm.

Each petal is adorned with undulating textures reminiscent of gentle waves, capturing the shimmering essence of a sunlit sea.

Supplies Needed

  • Stellar Dendrite Snowflake Silicone Mold
  • Epoxy Resin and Hardener
  • Transparent Pigment for Resin (Aquamarine)
  • Fine-crushed Periwinkle Iridescent Glitter
  • Sponge Lip Brush
  • Mixing Stick
  • Small Cup with Thin Spout
  • Gloves

Step-by-step Instructions

1) Mix the resin 

Start this project by mixing up your epoxy resin and hardener. For this part, you have to be careful as you should achieve a correct 1:1 mixing ratio. Take a mixing cup and add the measured epoxy resin and hardener in it.

2) Add the color pigment

Once your epoxy mixture is ready, tint it by adding a few drops of the aquamarine transparent pigment in the cup, and again blend it nicely with the mixing stick.

When you are working with transparent pigments, keep in mind that they tend to be translucent but vivid and rich. These will help you achieve beautiful stained glass effect. You can always add more pigment for a more concentrated colour. However, avoid adding more than 5% colourant to your resin as it will alter the mixing ratio.

3) Tint your mold with mica powder

Take the snowflake mold and paint it entirely with fine-crushed iridescent mica powder. Do this by using a sponge lip brush to lightly dab it into the powder and then brushing it all over the mold. Make sure that you thoroughly cover all the curves and creases for a neat finish.

4) Pour the resin mixture

Take your mold and pour the aquamarine-tinted resin in it. As resin is self-leveling, it will spread out evenly across the surface of the mold when you fill the mold adequately. Now, leave it to fully cure for about twenty-four hours.

5) Demold the Snowflake

After your mold has fully cured, you can carefully demold it by gently pushing the needles out of the mold to reveal stunning iridescent snowflake.

#2: The warm amber of sunlight

This resin snowflake ornament demonstrates a transition from the bright yellow of sunlight to the warm tones of amber, and into the vivacious greens.

Each petal shades gradually from the center outwards, mimicking the multicolored radiance of a real snowflake under the sun's rays.

Supplies Needed

  • Large Diamond Snowflake Silicone Mold
  • Epoxy Resin and Hardener
  • 5-Channel Paint Split Cup
  • Transparent Pigment (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Aquamarine)
  • Mixing Stick
  • Small Cup with Thin Spout
  • Gloves

Step-by-step Instructions

1) Prepare a split cup for resin pour

Begin by first taking your 5-channel paint split cup and adding adequate amounts of resin in each section of the cup. Split cup makes the job easier as its ergonomic design prevents pigment drippings and allows precise pouring. It will also help you create beautiful patterns for your snowflake.

2)  Add different colors into separate resin mixture

Take the transparent pigments and add a few drops of each colour into separate sections.

With the help of the mixing stick, blend the colors in the resin nicely.

3) Pour them into the mold

Carefully and slowly tip the split cup to pour the tinted resin in the mold and fill the mold to the brim.

The cup will help you keep the colors separate while you pour and form distinct colour sections in the mold that looks as if the colours are seamlessly emerging from each other. Leave the mold to cure overnight.

4) Demold the snowflake

Once the mold has fully cured after about twenty-four hours, you can carefully demold it to get your beautiful colours-of-autumn snowflake.

Iridescent snowflakes are a reminder that winter has finally arrived and colours-of-autumn snowflakes are reminiscent of the bygone season. So, get your supplies now and start making these decorations for yourself right away!
