Resin Bottle Cap Charm tutorial
This is my last guest contributor post with Plucky’s Second Thought.
It has been such a pleasure to be able to share some projects over here.
Today I want to share this cute Resin Bottle Cap Charm.
You will need:
- A bottle cap
- Sheet music
- Clean wood craft stick for stirring
- Resin (I used automotive resin from the hardware store)
- Small dixie cup (paper, NOT waxed)
- Small Food Scale
- White Glue
Trace bottle cap back onto the sheet music.
Cut out circle.
Trim to fit in the bottle cap.
Glue into Bottle Cap.
Follow the manufacturer’s directions for measuring and mixing the resin and hardener in the paper cup.
Be sure to mix thoroughly, scraping sides but not adding lots of air bubbles.
Use wooden craft stick to add resin by carefully dripping into the bottle cap until it as full as you wish.
Follow manufacturer’s directions for the amount of time it needs to cure.
Avoid touching the surface until completely dry.
Once it is dry and not sticky, turn the bottle cap over and gently tap a nail with a hammer to make a small hole for the wire bail.
Cut a piece of wire about 9 inches long.
Pass the wire through the hole and twist to make a bail.
Add to your desired chain.
Automotive resin is not clear.
It has an amber cast to it.
I personally like the look.
It gives it the look of age.
If you want a crystal clear look, use resin from the craft store
Again, I have so enjoyed being a part of Plucky’s Second Thought in my own small way.
