3 Crucial Tips While Making Food Jewellery Using Resin
While making cute jewellery for kids especially when it comes to foodstuff that has moisture. Let me walk you through very important tips you should keep in mind.
Use Tissues To Remove Moisture
If you are using fresh fruits that has moisture, always dehydrate them at first. Use Tissue paper and let the fruit dry for some time. Reason being, epoxy resin won’t cure if you use watery food items.
Art Resin For Kids
Art resin is highly recommended for kids as it is not harmful as compared to epoxy resin. But, even then I strongly suggest wearing hand gloves and a mask while working with resin.
Double layer Resin and Molds
First, add single layer of resin and pour the food item then add the second layer to protect it completely. Also, use molds is the easiest jewellery making craft that is quite convenient to pour resin and remove once cured.
