Creating a DIY resin art keychain can be a fun and creative project. Resin art allows you to combine colors and textures to make unique and personalized pieces. Here’s a basic guide to help you make your own resin art keychain:

1. Mix Resin:

   Follow the instructions on your epoxy resin kit to mix the resin and hardener in the correct proportions. Use mixing cups and stirring sticks to ensure a thorough mix. 

2. Add Pigments or Dye:

   Once the resin and hardener are mixed, add resin dye or pigment to create your desired colors. Mix well until the color is uniform.

3. Pour Resin into Molds:

   Carefully pour the colored resin into the molds. You can layer different colors or add embellishments like glitter if you wish.

4. Remove Air Bubbles:

   To eliminate air bubbles, use a small torch or heat gun to gently pass over the resin surface. Be careful not to overheat and damage the mold.

5. Curing Time:

   Allow the resin to cure according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This typically takes 24-48 hours.

   Once the resin is fully cured, carefully remove the pieces from the molds. Follow the mold instructions for the best demolding technique.

7. Finishing Touches:

   If desired, use sandpaper to smooth any rough edges.

8. Attach Keychain Hardware:

    Use a drill or rotary tool to create a hole in the cured resin where you can attach the keychain hardware. Be gentle to avoid cracking the resin.
