Finished this cutie today!
I really love the look of sand in resin so will definitely be making more!
I used some empty containers as a mould. Cut the base off the larger bowl so that I could pour in the resin. I used silicone to stick the bowls to the ice cream lid base.
Rookie mistake was to leave the label on the smaller bowl. This got stuck to the resin and needed sanding off once cured.
The sand had been washed and left in the sun to dry before use.
The resin I used was from the Fibreglass Shop. Ordered online and delivered the following day! Awesome service. (Would be nice if the safety infomation and instructions were included with the epoxy and it’s hardener, instead of having to print it off online myself.)
I use Entropy Super Sap CCR Epoxy Resin. It’s easy to mix and quick to harden, and doesn’t have the nasty smell that polyester resins have.
