- Crystal Flower Silicone Molds
- Epoxy Resin and Hardener
- Metal Spatula
- Diamond Gold Powder
- Laser Paper
- Permanent Maker
- Precision Tweezers
- Chunky Iridescent Glitter
- Epoxy Mixing Stick
- Small Cup with Thin Spout
1) Prepare the Base of the Molds
To begin with this project, you need to first prepare the base of both the crystal flower molds. Take the first mold and fill its central cavity with clear resin mixture using a spatula.
Use the same spatula to scoop a little bit of diamond gold powder, mix it with the resin in the center and set it aside.
Take the second mold, pour a thin layer of clear resin mixture in it, and spread it in the nook and crevices of the mold using the spatula. Leave both molds to cure overnight.
2) Embed the Laser Paper
Carefully place the laser paper on your first mold and trace the shape of the flower using a permanent marker. If your paper is not staying in its place, you can also use masking tape on its edges to fix it firmly. This will also make tracing the flower on it a lot easier for you.
With the help of scissors, cut out the shape of the flower and embed it in the cavity using precision tweezers. This laser paper will add a beautiful iridescent shimmer to your flower and eliminate the need to add any more glitter.
After embedding the paper, pour a layer of clear resin mixture on top of it to seal it shut. Now, leave the mold for about twenty-four hours to fully cure.
3) Add Glitters
Pour another layer of clear resin in your second mold and spread it with a spatula to fill any remaining dents.
Add a variety of chunky iridescent glitter in each petal and allow it to spread across the surface so that the top is nicely covered. Leave it overnight to cure.
4) Demold the Crystal Flowers
Once your molds have fully dried, you can carefully demold them to reveal shimmering crystal flowers.
Now, you can use these flowers in a variety of ways around your home or give these to your friends and family as a gesture of love.
Crystal flowers can be a stunning addition to your home decorations with their beautiful sparkle. These flowers are not only easy to make but also enable you to enjoy your time as you delve into the process of making them.
