resin crystal ball duo

We see these mystical resin crystal balls in your future!
Step 1

First, use the mold to create a dark crystal ball. Prepare the mold by ensuring there is a tight seal around the middle where the two sides meet.
TIP: Be sure to wear gloves and work on a protected surface.

Step 2

Pull a strip of fiber fill from the bag. Add drops of the darkest blue, white and teal blue opaque dyes directly onto the fiber fill piece. Spritz with water. Add glitter stars and work the stars into the fiber fill so they stick. Place the dyed and glittered fiber fill into the mold.

Step 3

Mix equal parts resin and resin hardener. Stir slowly until completely mixed. Divide resin into two small plastic cups. Put more resin in one cup and less in another.

Step 4

Add darkest blue transparent dye to the cup with the larger portion of resin and stir slowly. Add chunky lagoon glitter to the dyed resin and stir to incorporate. Leave the smaller portion of resin clear.

Step 5

Alternate pouring dark blue and clear resins into the mold until filled.

Step 6

Apply heat with a heat gun to raise bubbles.

Step 7

Allow resin to cure in the mold for 12-24 hours until set. Remove from mold by separating the two halves. Set aside.
TIP: Use water, sandpaper and a mist of water to smooth the middle seam of the sphere if needed.

Step 8

Next, use the mold to create a pastel crystal ball. Again, prepare the mold by making sure there is a tight seal around the middle where the two sides meet.

Step 9

Mix equal parts resin and resin hardener. Stir slowly until completely mixed. Divide resin into four small plastic cups.

Step 10

Add white and red opaque dyes into one portion and stir slowly to make pink. Add dark blue dye to a second portion, white to a third portion and light blue to the fourth portion. Stir silver star glitter into white portion.

Step 11

Alternate pouring the four mixtures into the mold. Swirl the mold around between each mixture.

Step 12

Repeat Step 6.

Step 13

Allow all resin to cure in the mold for 12-24 hours until set. Remove from mold by separating the two halves.

Step 14

Use E6000® glue to adhere the bottom of the Dark Crystal Ball to the shorter candleholder and the Pastel Crystal Ball to the taller candleholder.
