Step 1

Mix a batch of resin. For more detailed instructions see Using ICE Resin with Bezel Pendants Technique.

Step 2

Grab a couple extra cups to use for your ICE Resin. It is good to have multiple ICE Resin projects lined up to prevent any waste.

Step 3

Pour your desired amounts of ICE Resin into each measuring cup you will be using. We chose to pour equal amounts of ICE Resin into three measuring cups.

Step 4

Add your first color into the first cup of ICE Resin. We are using 2 drops of the opaque blue pigment. With the opaque pigments start out using a smaller amount. You can always add more color.

Step 5

Using a stir stick start mixing the pigment with the ICE Resin.

Step 6

You have now added color to your ICE Resin by using an opaque pigment.

Step 7

Add your next color into the second cup of ICE Resin. We are using a small spoonful of PearlEX pigment. With the PearlEx pigments start out using a smaller amount. You can always add more color.

Step 8

Using a stir stick start mixing the pigment with the ICE Resin.

Step 9

You have now added color to your ICE Resin by using a PearlEX pigment.

Step 10

Add your next color into the third cup of ICE Resin. We are using a small spoonful of glitter. With the glitter start out using a smaller amount. You can always add more color.

Step 11

Using a stir stick start mixing the glitter with the ICE Resin.

Step 12

You have now added color to your ICE Resin by using glitter.

Step 13

Congratulations! You have created three different colors of ICE Resin to use in your jewelry designs.
