【转载】宝石制作方法

看到个不错的方法,但是就是觉得毒气严重|||||||||||

不过如今好多大的宝石都买不到,我又讨厌圣诞球,用这个方法制作到是不错

不过感觉光泽感一般般,透光性不是很好

This is what we need, polyester resin, which is mostly used by some amateurs to make paper weights. As a result, you can get it without effort, online store, hardware store, but we recommend you to buy such things on Tap Plastics, for their product is better.

Then you have to buy some catalyst that will mix with the resin to make it harden, also available in Tap Plastics in the category of surface curing agent. It helps hardening the outside of the cast resin jewels. You may hear such conclusion that you can make things work without the catalyst, but we suggest you buy these stuff and you’ll find it useful in the processes.



You also need dyes to color your jewels. It’s available in Tap’s and in Michael’s, but we bolter the Michael’s a bit. For things sold in their store is specialized for resins.





Mold is also a must, so we use plastic paint trays for small jewels and half-dome mold of Tap Plastics for big jewels.

At last, you may want to buy scale to measure the resin. The instructions for mixing the resin tells people how many drops of catalyst and surface curing agent to add per ounce of resin, while generally eyeball the dosage is far from precision.

Here’s how we start our work.

At first, mix the resin. It’s quite simple work to do. Read the instructions, and mix up the resin, catalyst, curing agent and dye in a cup according to the words. Stir them well and then pour into the molds. It’s ok if you carelessly drops some dew here and there.



After you pour things in, you’ll have to wait for some moments till it totally hardens. It may take 4-6 hours depending on the temperature. Well, the warmer it is, the faster it will harden.

Here are some important notes. In the process for the resin to harden, it will certainly give off a toxic fume, which will sure cast some bad effect on your body. So leave the room. You may choose to do it in your garage, or out on the balcony. And curing resin is an exothermic reaction. It’s a process generates heat. So make sure your molds and on whatever you place the molds can stand that heat.



When it is completely cured and hard, you can simply flex the mold or tap it gently on a table to pop the jewels out. Then all you have to do is to attach the resin jewel to the kitchen foil to make it shine. You can skip the step off if you find it excess, but it’s another step we recommend, which make the jewel prettier as if it’s shiny.

To glue the jewels to the fabric, we use E6000 which is available at Home Depot or Michael’s or Joanns. And we use quick setting epoxy to add them on rough surface, which is aside the E6000. So here’s the finishing picture!
