Resin craft is an exciting way to make jewellery and other accessories. Learn how to create everything from earrings to key rings with this definitive guide to resin craft.

This collection of techniques will get you started on your resin journey even if you've never tried it before and, if you do have some experience, there are 17 inspirational projects to make.

Resin craft is having a resurgence and it offers so many possibilities to create original jewellery and accessories that will amaze your friends. This collection is packed full of step-by-step instructions for techniques such as mixing and pouring resin, creating your own moulds, adding jewellery findings and using pigments and inks.

Author Mia Winston-Hart also explains how to use botanicals with resin, and explores how you can source and prepare your own botanicals for really bespoke pieces, with instructions for drying your own flowers and plants.

There is comprehensive information about all the safety issues surrounding resin craft and the author explores the various different types of resin available including plant and vegetable-based resins, and how to choose and use them safely. And there are instructions on how to create your own moulds alongside the different resin techniques, and 17 eye catching resin projects.

All of the projects are accompanied by step-by-step photography so you can see exactly what to do at each stage. Choose your favourite from this collection which includes floral earrings; heat proof coasters, a beach scene tray, a galaxy themed table top, a shell comb, a flower and gold leaf keyring, glittery hair clips and a floral phone case.

Some of the many techniques covered include: sanding, deep pouring, making your own moulds, how to avoid bubbles in your work, de-moulding, mixing and pouring, working with different layers, and drying and preserving botanicals.

There is even a trouble shooting section so you can iron out any problems once you start putting your newfound skills into practise.
