Star Trek Inspired Resin

Have you seen Star Trek: Into Darkness?! If you haven't, it will be available on DVD on Tuesday the 10th!


It is a great action packed movie for Trekkies! I created this super simple necklace inspired by the movie poster.


I'm using EasyCast Resin, Castin' Crafts Mold Release, Black Resin Color, White Resin Color, and a mold for Yaley.
*ETI suggests wearing gloves for safety* Also, gloves help keep your nails nice!


Spray your mold with mold release and mix up a batch of resin.
Color this resin black.


Prop the mold up at an angle...



This is a mold from Yaley Enterprises.
They make resin and Deep Flex Resin Molds along with a variety of colorants.

Add some black resin being sure not to overflow the mold. Let this set to harden for a few hours.


You can lay the mold flat now and mix up another batch of resin.
Color this batch white.


Pour the white resin into the mold.


Let this set for 24 -72 hours until hardened.


By propping the mold it creates a neat gradient effect.


To turn this into a necklace I'm using some white ribbon and scissors.


Cut a length of ribbon and loop it through the resin piece to wear your new pendent!


You could also hang it upside down using a black ribbon!
