Step by Step Instructions
1. Kissing Couple Silicone Mold
In order to make this artwork, you first need to get a kissing couple silicone mold. These molds come with base stands so, you don’t have to worry about that. There are various sizes, shapes, and designs available in the market as well so, you can choose the one that you like best.
2. Epoxy Resin and Hardener
For the second step, you need to prepare your resin mixture. To make the resin mixture, it is important for you to achieve a correct 1:1 mix ratio by volume. So, take two parts resin and one part hardener. Once you have got the right ratio, blend the measured epoxy resin and hardener in a container with a mixing stick while you have your gloves on.
3. Tint Your Resin
Then, you need to tint your resin with orange and blue alcohol inks. Alcohol inks are used so that you can get a translucent appearance. Take two separate containers and add the orange and blue alcohol inks in the containers to achieve the shade that you desire.
4. Pour the Resin Mixture
Once you have prepared your resin mixtures, you need to work with them at the same time. For this purpose, start pouring orange and blue tinted resin mixture in your kissing couple silicone mold side by side. Once you have filled the mold, leave it overnight to cure. Repeat the same process for the base stand too but only fill it halfway, and then, leave it for three to six hours so that it can get a gel-like consistency.
5. Prepare Resin Flowers
For resin flowers, you need to keep in mind that these will be used to decorate your kissing couple resin artwork. So, it is important that you make them a day before you prepare the main mold. To prepare resin flowers, you need to take your flower molds of different sizes and fill half of them with orange resin mixture and the other half with blue resin mixture. Let them dry for twenty-four hours.
6. Set the Resin Flowers
Once the resin flowers have dried, you can gently demold them and set them in the base mold of the kissing couple once the base mold has achieved a gel-like consistency. You need to set these flowers in the way that blue flowers are in the orange portion of the base mold and orange flowers are in the blue portion to add some contrast. To secure the flowers in their place, you can use resin curing UV flashlight.
7. Add Charms
Now, demold the kissing couple resin artwork and attach the Just for You charm at the bottom of it. Stick the May Your Days Be Painted In Gold charm in the middle of the base mold. Don’t forget to add the final, clear resin layer in the base mold to fix everything in place. Leave the base mold to cure overnight.
8. Ready to Display Kissing Couple Resin Artwork
Once the base layer has cured, demold it and stick the kissing couple resin project in it. Now, you can put it wherever you like and enjoy a beautiful addition to your home.
