Instructions

  1. Shake your mold release spray and then spray into the heart mold cavities, all 4 of them. With very clean fingers or a non-fibrous cloth, work the mold spray into the mold and then let dry. Wash your hands.
  2. Mix 1 oz of Ice Resin. Once part A and part B are mixed, squeeze 1 small drop of red pigment and 1 drop of white into your resin. Using your mixing stick, mix the colors together until all striations are gone. You might want to add more white to "calm" down you pink, just remember one drop at a time and because of the small amount of resin being used, do not use more then 3 or 4 drops total of all the dye.
  3. Carefully pour or use your mixing stick to transfer the pink resin to the bottom of all 4 hearts in your heart mold. You will notice that there are two levels of hearts in your mold, just fill it to the top of the "smaller" heart. Try to not let any of the pink touch the sides of the larger "top" heart. Let harden for 24 hours.
  4. On the following day, or several days later if you prefer, mix another 1 oz of Ice Resin. Once part A and part B are mixed, squeeze 1 small drop of brown pigment into your resin. Using your mixing stick, mix until all the striations are gone. If you want a darker color, add another drop of brown. Pour your brown resin directly on top of your pink in the mold. Fill until just slightly below the top of the mold, do not let it spill over. Let cure for a full 3 days.
  5. After at least 3 days, pop the hearts out of the mold.
  6. Place a dab of E6000 glue on one side of one of your round magnets. Center the magnet to the back of your resin heart. Place the magnet with glue side down to the back of the heart. Press into place. Let dry. Repeat with your other 3 magnets - keep the magnets away from each other as you do this, otherwise their magnetic force will draw them to each other and could make working difficult. Let dry.
  7. Have fun with you new magnets!
