These tips will assist everyone, whether you are an enthusiast of resin art or a beginner. You can even enrol in meticulously tailored resin art courses.

14 Tips for Making Your Resin Art Exquisite and Attractive

Assemble Your Accessories

Everything you need while crafting your masterpiece should be available at the right time, whether it's your colours, pigments, and particles or any other decorative item.

Furthermore, other supportive items, such as heat guns, plastic sheaths, wooden sticks, etc., must be available.

Obviate Humidity 

Suppose it's raining or there is the presence of excessive humidity in your room or work area. In that case, you should avoid executing your task as the resin cures best in fifty percent humidity. Besides that, ensure that the requisite resin art materials do not contain moisture.

Cleaning Equipment Must Be Ready

Always keep your cleaning tools and equipment ready as you have to quickly clean the spillover or drops, or you might face accidental contact with the spilled resin. Therefore, clean the spillover or drops as soon as possible.

Secure Your Art

You should complete your work in a lone place as resin art takes 2 to 3 days to set in. Therefore, avoid disturbance. Furthermore, find an airy place where your respiratory system can find peace and comfort. If you have completed your art, please give it seclusion as it requires some time to dissipate its dampness.

Workspace Should Be Organized

As you know, you are dealing with chemicals; therefore, you must handle everything cautiously. Furthermore, everything should be organised and placed properly in the right place so that you can avoid undesirable confusion and overthinking. The materials you would be using, such as safety equipment, cleaning tools, decorative items, etc, must be placed at designated places to find them easily when needed.

Avoid Pets

Pets are adorable, but don't allow them access to your recently finished art form. Otherwise, they will ruin it. There is a small possibility that your pet's hair will stick with the painting. If you have a dog, keep your project at a good height, but if you have a cat or bird, then book a separate room for your art to cure, as cats are agile, and birds have wings; they can transcend all physical barriers.

Avoid Extreme Temperature

Resins are precarious to extreme temperatures. Therefore, you cannot craft your art as expected if you start making it in very cold or hot temperatures. Hence, use warm resin while making your art.

Quantity and Mixing Matters

Mixing resin with the hardener should conform with the instructions mentioned on the Resin kit lest you face difficulties. Moreover, their mixing must be done gradually, as fast-paced mixing would give you bubbles. Evade these bubbles as much as you can.

Plastic Container

Always cover your art after completion to protect it from unwanted waste and dust particles. Additionally, give it the care and attention it demands. It can be covered by enclosing it in a plastic container.

Check the Expiry Date

Before buying any resin kit, ensure the package or bottle is sealed because once it gets broken, the resin must be used within 1 or 2 months. After that, it expires. Therefore, check the expiry date before buying, and remember to keep it away from light. Instead, please keep it dry and dark for better preservation.

Removing Unwanted Things

Suppose something unwanted has entered your project, such as thread, particle, hair, etc. Don't panic! It can be removed easily. Use a heat gun if your piece is in the process of losing its moisture. However, you can also utilise IPA (isopropyl alcohol), but be vigilant while using it as little negligence of yours might degrade your hard work. 

Reducing the Cleaning Work

Most Indian Crafters harness disposable plastic cups for mixing the resin and other materials, and they always clean the cups before the resin loses its moisture and gets dry. In this way, they use these same cups repeatedly. However, if you are reluctant to this process, you can use silicone cups, which can be used easily and cleaned comfortably.

Quality of Resins

We know that Indian crafters are extremely cautious about their budgets. Still, you must buy good quality resin if you are sweating to get the clarity, crystal clear glossy appearance, gleaming shine, and elegant appearance as these qualities of resin entice the viewers.

Careful While Using It

Avoid the Indian jugaad strategy, and never forget to use the respirator, apron, safety goggles, and gloves. Please keep your eyes and skin secure, as the resin is a toxic substance; avoid getting in contact with it. However, if you accidentally touch it and feel itchiness, immediately make an appointment with your doctor. Your health is your actual wealth. That's why safety is foremost.  


Crafting resin art is a meditative and soothing process for our senses and minds. However, it requires an ample amount of adequate safety procedures, suitable quality materials, optimum amount of temperature and humidity levels in the environment, absence of moisture in surrounding materials, good quality of resins, and lastly, peace of mind as creativity always germinates from a peaceful and sane mindset.

Remember, the dimensions and elements of art are not limited to its beauty. It also signifies your creativity and your uniqueness of thoughts, and it can also be a manifestation of your feelings.
