Make your own vase with epoxy resin

Make your own vase. What could be more fun to make than something you can use in everyday life! You can make this vase too! And the best part is you can use it yourself or give it as a gift to someone.

Supplies:
- Epoxy casting resin 1:1
- Scale
- Silicone mold | Modern vase + glass tubes

Possibly:
- Pigments for epoxy glitter , decoration as desired
- Gloves
- Mixing spatulas 
- Mixing cups (preferably silicone)
- Heat tool or lighter (in case of air bubbles) and baby wipes (in case you spill)

I use Epoxy casting resin 1:1 to make the openers. This resin is cheap for large surfaces and very easy to use. The instructions for mixing are on the packaging and product page, but it's not that difficult.
With the Silicone mold vase you can choose from three different shapes. I'm making the square one this time.

Step 1: Mixing epoxy

I use the Epoxy casting resin 1:1 . So you mix this resin 1:1. First prepare a total of approximately 260 grams of epoxy resin according to the instructions on the bottle. So 130 grams of component A and 130 grams of component B. Stir this together gently for a few minutes.

After stirring, leave the epoxy alone for a while, so that most air bubbles will slowly rise and break. Then I add 30 grams (YES 30 grams) of glitter! Also gently stir this into the epoxy.

Step 2: Assembling the mold

To use this mold you must place a separate part. Place the short round silicone tube into the opening of the mold. Make sure it is properly inserted.

Step 3: The pouring epoxy resin into the mold

Pour the epoxy resin quietly in the mold. I make a circle in the mold myself so that everything spreads out well. Make sure there is a small bulge at the edge of the mold. I do this because epoxy always shrinks slightly and this gives you the best result.

Step 4: Wait

Wait 24 hours to 48 hours before removing mold. This is the curing time of this epoxy resin.

Step 5: Remove your creation from the mold

This is always the most fun part for me...removing the mold. Because this is quite a large item, I first loosen all the sides and then remove the entire mold. Once the vase is out of the mold you can also remove the silicone tube. This is also the entrance to the glass tube. Take the creation out of the mold slowly and do not pull, otherwise you run the risk of damaging your mould.

Nice ideas!
- Use two colors of epoxy pigment
- Add dried flowers

Lots of fun. Love Petra.
