Easy wine glass decorating with Epoxy Resin!



hello and welcome to sufyani designs today's video is on how I created this resin pour on this wine glass now I move it a little bit closer now as you can see the resin is it looked quite quite effective on this glass and I should know if you were to pour resin onto a glass or any substrate that's got a curve or anything like that it would just pour off and you would left be left with a very thin layer of resin and not much else happening on there you would lose the colors and what have you so for this project I wanted to create a thick layer resin and but also to have it look quite organic so how I did that was poured some resin onto some baking paper left it secured just long enough for me to transfer it across and so that wasn't too hard but wasn't too sticky either so that just it was able to stick to the glass and this is what we came up with so without further ado let's get on with the video so I mixed up a batch of clear resin about 400 mils worth and that was enough to do two large wine glasses now these wine glasses can actually hold a whole bottle of wine so that gives you an idea on how large these glasses are so I've just poured and some small blobs of resin onto the baking paper I also mixed up a small batch in with low res expressions pigments so this one it's cosmic blue and I also mixed up a small batch of magenta blues now these were very very kindly given to me by Susanna dance from the res expressions she sent me a whole batch of sample pigments with me for me to try out so this is the first real project I've done we use these pigments I have used the weight on a previous one and you will see my thoughts on the weight in the previous video but for the time being this is the first time using these particular colors so you can see here's I'm just adding a touch of pink and blue to the clear now I'm not going to mix overly mix this exact you want some of the clear to appear on the glass so you've got and some you've got some definition between the colors and then using the stick just swirl about ever so lightly you don't need a lot of movement now don't worry that these blobs of colors are they've run into each other because what I do is when this semi cured actually cut them in half and the fact that we've got some interesting shapes that actually makes for some interesting designs on the glass so don't worry too much about that now forgot to turn on the video for the other glass but luckily I realized before starting this one so all I'm doing here is I've actually left the resin to cure probably for about three hours and but I did go back and check on it regularly and because because the time you and it's quite warm and I was concerned that it would cure quite quickly so in winter it would take a lot longer to get to the stage but if you just go back and test the resin now what you wanted to be doing is be cured enough you can actually touch it and you're not lifting any of the resin off the paper but not to cure that it's actually too stiff so and as you can see I'm just applying the parchment baking paper and resin to the glass at the top and then pulling it in a downwards motion so that it moves down the glass but what I'm also doing you can see here add in a little bit of heat before pulling the paper off now this is just reactivate the resin just so that it flows more freely down the glass suppose to just stick it and pull the paper off you most of it would remain on the paper so by doing this it means that the resin is actually sticking to the glass and also by heating it like I'm doing here I'm actually encouraging the resin to warm down the glass but not too much so this has been left overnight and is now fully cured so now we're just going to tidy this up so any stray stringy bits that are as you can see here on the glass which I'm going up to the top of a glass I'm now going to trim them off with a sharp knife so I'm just gently using the edge of the blade to cut into the resin and then just lift that off and that comes off quite easy so I want to go Brown to do that and there's two reasons why I do this one a sitar D look for to remove any resident from the rim of the glass so that way if anybody wants to use the glass for drinking wine for the purposes of why you've got a wine glass then they can the the wine and and the lips and things I'm not going to be in contact with the resin so this is Rui but I'm trimming this off now well of course when I come to put these into the gallery I will put and a disclaimer saying that one the you know you shouldn't have direct contact with the resin with foodstuff and obviously and drink but also not to put in the dishwasher and various things like that so I mean ideally I would prefer people to use these errs with just more as a decorative item you know maybe stick to Molly do lights in the bottom and then or you can just stick a plain white candle in there now I wouldn't recommend lighting a candle either because I don't know what effects heat has over time with cured resin and so I would err on the side of caution but I am tempted to put a candle in into and one of these and let it go you wanted a little tea lights and let it burn and just to see what happens with the resin so I may well do that and give you my findings on that also so here you can see this piece of resin actually went right up to the lip of the glass so I'm actually removing it so I'm using the – line both where the resum big thick drip the resin end now because this is a little bit thicker it was harder to remove so I'm just going to apply some heat which makes it easier for the knife to cook through and obviously I don't apply too much pressure with a knife to go on smash the glass so by just adding a little bit of heat and I'm able to trim that excess resin off and make it m-mike best boutique neat and tidy really sorry about the squeaks on here it's a the nicely the resins quite squeaky as you can see that came up quite easily so I'll just go around make sure that all of this is trimmed up looks nice and neat and tidy there's no excess resin around the lip and I'll give the blastopore clean with just soap and water after I've given it a white wig then some ribbon alcohol to make sure there's no residue left on the glass and then that's pretty much it you're good to go so that's it for today some very simple resin wine glasses as you can see they look quite effective and I think they'll make a nice addition in any home so if you enjoyed this video as always please give me a thumbs up or better still subscribe to my channel you'll find a list of just a list in the description of the products used and any handy links to my Instagram Facebook and various things like that you'll find that in the description so until next time I hope you enjoyed this video and I hope to bring you some more ideas for your resin so until then bye for now

    Question: I tried to make something using the plastic bags and the plastic bags won’t come off the resin. Is there something I did wrong?

    another suggestion- tape baking paper around top trim (mouth) of the glass / masking tape , then do the same thing as you did. once done, remove tape or baking paper from the mouth, it will be cleaned , maybe can use for drinking and bits of drip or leftover will be removed as well. i think it should work. it is just my imagination.
