Passionart Steps to Follow

  • Have your resin at room temp and weigh out how much you require
  • Mix your resin slowly so not to introduce to much air then let rest for 10 mins
  • Clean your mould with painters or sticky tape - removes micro dust
  • Once your resin reaches 33c pour enough into your mold to cover it by 1 to 2mm deep
  • Divide the remaining resin into 4 equal parts and add your Colour Passion Mica
  • Make sure you leave a small amount of clear resin for the final push / stage
  • Pour your colours around the mould slightly overlapping the previous colour
  • See video for above as well as doing the clear push at the end
  • Now use your low warm heat gun to warm resin causing blending
  • Now you can add glitter to the center if you want to for more bling
  • Now hit it with a gas torch blue flame but do not burn resin or mould
  • Leave to cure for 8 to 10 hours temp depending
  • Spray your forming mold with silicone spray
  • Remove from your casting mould and place in or on your forming mold
  • Leave to cure fully
  • Remove from the mould and you have just made your first bowl
  • Now you can paint the edges after a light sand if you want to or leave natural
