13 Resin Tutorials Featured in 2019

This has been a big resin tutorial year here at Nunn Design. We all hope that you have been inspired by all that we have offered.

Let’s do a recap of 10 resin tutorials featured this year!

1. Make Sculpted Crystal Clay using a Silicone Mold with Colorized Resin Overlay!

Create dimensional molds with 2-Part Silicone Molding Putty to make a sculpted Crystal Clay impression. Once the clay is cured, mix and colorize some Nunn Design Resin to create really beautiful bezel pendants.

2. Make Sculpted Resin using a Silicone Mold

Create dimensional molds with 2-Part Silicone Molding Putty to make a sculpted resin focal.

3. Make These with Colorized Resin & Transfer Sheets

Although we have done several tutorials and videos on how to use resin and transfer sheets, we have not yet done this exact combination of techniques. In this tutorial, we will be using an open back bezel, translucent colorized resin with a transfer sheet. A couple of different tweaks and such a different look as a result!

4. Make These with Crystal Clay, Skeleton Leaves and Nunn Design Resin

This is another one of those simple tutorials that creates such great results! The details of the skeleton leaf really make this project, and it is a great starting point for other organics too!

5. Make These with Colorized Resin, PearlEx Powders & Organics

This tutorial was inspired by the look of dendritic quartz and dendritic agates.  What is so fun about this technique can also cause some resin creators a little anxiousness. There are no two pieces that will look just alike!  If you are looking to exploring resin, then this technique is just up your alley.

6. Make These with Crystal Clay, Mica Flakes & Colorized Resin

I was curious about how to create more of a reflective quality in my resin pieces. By applying a layer of Crystal Clay and embedding Mica Flakes prior to pouring the colorized resin into the bezel allowed for a more reflective pop to the resin. Once the resin has cured, the resin is gently sanded to provide the dull matte finish. The overall results? I think they are stunning.

7. Crystal Clay, Jacquard PearlEx Powders & Colorized Resin

I am thrilled with how these pieces look! I knew I had a winner when we were asked over and over again, “do you also sell the stones.” This look really has a high-end feel, yet is fairly simple to execute.

8. Marbleized Resin with Transfer Sheets

Learn how to create a marbleized resin effect using Nunn Design 2-Part Resin, Gilding Flakes, and Nunn Design Transfer Sheets. The results will look very different than traditional colorized resin.

9. Resin Filled Pendants in Wire Frames!

Learn how to use Jacquard PearlEx Powders and Nunn Design Resin within a Wire Frame.

10. Crystal Clay, Skeleton Leaves and Resin within Wire Frames Tutorial!

11. Colorized Crystal Clay, Organics and Colorized Resin Tutorial

The motivation for this technique was to make it easier for the maker to create fabulous pendants with a more streamlined process. By using colorized Crystal Clay in the base of the bezel, then applying the organics, only a single pour of resin is required!

12. Create Texture with a Silicone Mold, Colorized Crystal Clay, PearlEx Powdered Pigments and Nunn Design Resin

Learn how to create interesting textures into colorized Crystal Clay to make fabulous focal pieces!

13. Organics & Nunn Design 2-Part Resin in Open Back Hoops

Using an open back hoop as opposed to a bezel is a fun way to create organic resin jewelry. In this

    I am new to the resin world and I love your tutorials. This is more a question than comment … I have recently tried UV resin for pendant jewelry. It doesn’t harden, per say. It feels kinda tacky after I use the UV light. Not sure if its the brand of resin, (my mom bought it off Amazon for Christmas) or the amount of time I leave it under the light. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated.

    If the uv resin is still tacky, it is not cured. This could be the resin itself, or how you used it. All aspects of the resin have to be exposed to the uv light. If you embedded anything, this will limit the exposure to the light and the piece won’t cure.
