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®

    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
