9 Jewelry Techniques to Create with Excess Nunn Design Resin

I know for myself; I hate to waste resin. Here are 9 jewelry techniques that you can experiment with that use resin that is about to harden in the mixing cup. These techniques are handy to have at the ready during creative time spent using resin.

1. Colorize Resin Gems Tutorial

In the tutorial, learn how you can scoop the excess resin out of the mixing cup and let it cure on a Ziplock Bag. After a couple hours the resin will hit the “soft cure” phase of the curing process and you can roll and sculpt it.

2. Texturized Resin in Open Frame Hoops

In order for the resin in this technique to not stick to the texturizing pad while it cures, the resin needs to be very thick. It is ideal for using up that excess resin!

4. Texturized and Stitched Resin

Like technique #2, excess very thick resin is poured on a texturizing pad. Once the resin has reached the soft cure state, you can peel it off of the pad and cut it with scissors and punch it. I love the look of this technique.
