Crushed Pepper Resin Charms

 

Crushed red peppers in Resin pendant.

You know you are an obsessive crafter when it hurts to throw things away. Straws, chopsticks, gum ball toys, old purses — anything. One of my favorite crafts is working with two-part resin. I’m always looking for fun things to embed in it. So when I came across crushed pepper packets while cleaning the kitchen recently, I knew what my next project would be! Crushed pepper resin charms!

Supplies:
This is the resin I used for this project: Ice Resin Jewelers Grade Clear Casting Epoxy Resin 8 oz Kit
Crushed peppers Silicone mold/ice cube trays (found at the dollar store) Plastic cup, chopstick, straw Wax paper Glitter High-gloss varnish

Items you could substitute for crushed peppers: Small candies, gold foil flakes, sand, small beads, etc.

Resin tips: Always measure exactly what the directions call for. Mix thoroughly.

1. Work on a flat piece of cardboard and tape down a piece of wax paper. Follow the directions on the package of resin. I use a brand that requires equal parts. Pour a capful of Part A in a small cup. Use a chopstick to scrape out every last drop from the lid. Then repeat for Part B. Stir vigorously for about a minute. It’s okay if there are bubbles, they will pop.

Love & light,
