FAQ

  • How long does it take for the resin to cure?

    Every epoxy resin is a bit different but the ones we suggest can all be demoulded in about 24 hours. Your resin kit will state the cure times for your resin, and it's best to follow those guidelines.

  • Is resin safe to use?

    Resins designed for home use are safe to use when used as the manufacturer directs. I always recommend that you keep sticky resin off your skin by wearing gloves and goggles as a bare minimum. Once the resin cures, it is inert so it is perfectly safe for jewellery.

  • I'm a plus-size girl and I really want to make my own bangles. Do bangle moulds come in sizes for bigger girls?

    Yes, they do. They're a bit harder to find but we've compiled a list of bangles that are larger than average to make it easy for you. You'll find it in the downloads section of the class.
