This is my first crafty item on Amazon – runs so smooth & level – helps epoxy dry evenly – check it out!
There are many brands of epoxy but this is a great one to start off with…
Each time you cover your cup with a layer of epoxy – you will need to measure out equal parts of part A & B Alumilite – each layer takes about 6 hours to dry…you will need clean cups each layer so it’s good to stock up! The stir sticks need to be clean as well. You can use craft sticks but they have been shown to produce more bubbles in the epoxy mixture.
4. Plastic cups
You need a larger cup to add part A and B Alumilite before stirring, otherwise the epoxy will drip over the sides. This allows for clean mixing and enables you to use the stir stick slowly without overflowing to eliminate bubbles.
Along with this you will need a brush to apply.
You may also need some foam brushes.
This works under your turner to collect glitter. (You can add a piece of computer paper to also catch the glitter/epoxy).
9. Tumbler with a lid
Note: you can also stock up on these at your local Walmart
Colorful straws are also fun to add to add some extra charm!
10. Mica Powders & Alcohol inks
As you get more detailed with these tumblers you may want to decorate with Mica Powders
Alcohol inks are another fun way to add color!
*BONUS* Vinyl accessories
When you are making personalized decals for your cups – you’ll need some vinyl…
651 is great!
also glitter vinyl
and transfer paper to transfer the cut designs to the cup…
which of course you cut out with your Cricut!
If you’re wanting a great place to start… this YouTube has a good beginner tutorial!
