What is Ice Resin®?

ICE Resin® is a jeweler’s grade two-part epoxy resin that has some noteworthy attributes built into its chemistry, namely it’s doming, self-leveling and self-healing properties.

ICE Resin’s most significant characteristic is it’s jeweler’s grade quality. Once dry and fully cured, it’s crystal clear with a beautiful glass like finish, and it will stay that way forever. Your creativity will last a lifetime, as your work will not fade or become brittle. Its surface is strong, and jewelry made with it can be comfortably worn and put through the paces of daily living. This is a feature that sets ICE Resin® apart from others.
The resin prefers to create a “dome” shape when you pour it. You will see that as you drip it into a bezel, it holds it shape like a drop of water and will naturally maintain the drop shape.

ICE Resin® is also self-leveling. There is no need to spend extra time propping up your project to ensure your bezel is perfectly level before pouring. ICE Resin’s doming capabilities give it more surface tension, which also allows it to slowly spread out and self-level with a controlled pour. As long as the table surface you are working on is level and your project is laying fairly flat, it will naturally accommodate the surface.
Another important attribute is the resin’s self-healing properties. While it seems like a minor detail, this is one of the most magical things about working with ICE Resin® because it’s nearly impossible to mess up your work to the point of no repair.

  1. Did a bunch a tiles with ice resin and although it is shiny and waterproof, it is not allowing me to put a glass on my coaster without making an indent on it, I can also put my fingernail mark into it. Wish it was truly hard

    • If you can dent it then it was not completely cured. I had a problem if I coated more than once and did not let the first coat completely cure.

  2. I was so excited when I bought this resin and I was very disappointing once I started working with it. First of all it was never clear – you could hardly see embedded things in it. The only way I could work with it if I tinted it with paint or glitter. Second problem I’ve encountered was that some of the cabochons would “sweat”! (after they cured, a part of it would start leaking). I’ve never had this problem with any other resin. And the hardener really stunk. What a pity! Really wanted to make this my “go to” resin.

  3. I put seashell on a wreath.
    Could really hold I use ice resin to really hold the
    shells in place?
    If not, any other ideas that would work?
    Thank You.
