"A while back I made some steampunk door knobs/drawer pulls that have been super popular. I have had so many people ask me what else can be done with this idea. So I decided to do a test run adding a few different items to the resin to see how they would work out. I looked around the house and my workshop for items I could put in the resin I came up with shells, beads, thumbtacks, nuts and bolts and pebbles just to name a few."

Instructions

  1. I found ping pong balls that I have plenty off, any mould will work. Silicone mould works best. I cut the top off the balls using a Stanley knife.

  2. I used a cake mould to support the balls so they would not fall over once filled. I added all my elements to the balls. I used pebble, shells, thumbtacks, beads, nuts & bolts and charms. I found with the rounder balls I should have added more elements to fill up the balls. Once the resin was poured they fell from the sides to the bottom.

  3. Next, I made some supports to hold the bolts in place while the resin dries. The bolts should be at least halfway into the resin to make the knobs stronger.

  4. Mix your resin and pour it into the moulds. All resins are different so mix to the manufacturer's instructions

  5. Once the resin is poured you will find bubble will form across the resin surface. To pop the bubbles, I used a creme Brule torch. Just one swipe across the surface and the bubbles are gone. Or you can use a straw and blow through the straw. Your breath pops the bubbles.

  6. Wait 24 hours or until dry. Cut the ball and peel away. The only downside to the ping pong balls was the surface was a bit dull. To get the shine back I add acrylic spray and boom the surface was shiny again. This does not happen with silicone moulds.
