ICE Resin®

ICE Resin® is a jeweler's grade, crystal clear 2-part epoxy resin designed by Susan Lenart Kazmer. In this tutorial, you will learn ICE Resin basics- Mixing, Pouring & Doming. Create one of a kind mixed media jewelry, with this easy to use resin. 

Mixing ICE Resin®

Step 3: Begin mixing the two parts together using an ICE Resin® Stir Stick. Gently fold the resin and hardener into each other, making sure you scrape along the sides and bottom of the mixing cup. Continue mixing thoroughly for 2 minutes until the two parts are mixed together and the resin becomes slightly opaque. Once mixed, let rest for 5 minutes to allow any bubbles caused during mixing to dissipate.

Filling ICE Resin®

Step 1: Using the same stir stick used for mixing, begin to slowly drip resin into your bezel. Take your time and work in a controlled manner, dripping enough to fill your bezel just shy of its top. Allow to dry for approximately 8 hours before moving or handling. ICE Resin® will be fully cured in 3 days.

Doming ICE Resin®

Step 1: To create a dome or rounded bubble-like top on your bezel, it’s best to pour in stages. Pour ICE Resin® according to directions above and let dry.

Step 2: Once bezel is dry, mix a smaller batch of ICE Resin® and slowly drip into your bezel watching for the natural dome effect to occur. Once desired dome height is achieved, allow to dry for approximately 8 hours before moving or handling. ICE Resin® will be fully cured in 3 days.

    I have a large quantity of no-hole precious gem chips and would like to capture them in bezels for use in jewelry. Your instructions are clear and seem to be easy to follow. Is there anything else I need to know ? Thank you.

    I’m not working with a bezel, but rather wire to make resin flowers with a wire framework. If I can do that with this product, how should I go about it without a mold or much knowledge about resin?

    At what point in process do you add pressed flowers?

  • Julie Moody on

    How does Ice Resin work with placement of pressed flower? I have silicone molds I want to use and need to get other pieces from you for our classes.
    I don’t know when to add the flower or a photo during the process. Instructions weren’t clear or I missed something. Thank you, Julie Moody
