Casting Gold Effect Playing Cards in Epoxy Resin with AMAZING results


24 Carat gold foil playing cards For this project I’m using a low viscosity ultra clear epoxy resin This has a 2A:1B (by weight) mix ratio Measure as much as you need for your project and mix thoroughly Pour just enough resin into a mould to cover the base I will show this only once but repeat for every mould Detach any bubbles that may be clinging to the silicone Pop any bubbles on the surface with a flame, then allow to cure for 24 hours Pour another layer of resin into the mould, but not to the top Remove any bubbles as before For this mould I am using three cards taped together. You can see how in a moment. Insert your cards into the resin, one edge first, and gently lower them down to avoid trapping any air Gently press the cards down into the resin, forcing it to flow over them at the edges This will help to expel any bubbles which may be trapped underneath Top up the mould with more resin To make the square coaster, tape two cards together And repeat the process Keychain mould A home-made cuff link and tie pin mould A pendant mould A pyramid paperweight mould To make domed resin pieces I’m using Alumilite Amazing Clear Cast Resin which has a better (thicker) viscosity for doming It has a 1A:1B mix ratio (by volume) Lay some pre-cut sections of cards onto a silicone mat Ensure they are as flat as possible Carefully pour some resin onto each piece Just enough to cover each one Allow the resin to spread to the edge by itself Allow any bubbles to surface… …but if you must use a flame to pop them, move them to the centre and do it quickly If you use a flame too close to the edge, the resin will overflow Allow the resin to cure for 24 hours Set aside any pieces that don’t need double-sided doming, and turn the rest over Pour the resin just as before Due to the highly textured surface the resin may need encouraging to the edge De-moulding Drilling (use a 2mm drill bit) Attach jewellery findings Use 5 minute clear epoxy adhesive for anything that needs to be glued Mix thoroughly Score the backs of the mouldings with a sharp knife to give the adhesive a better grip Fix the cuff link backs and tie pin in place And any brooch pins Thanks for watching, please like and subscribe πŸ™‚

  1. This is amazing my friend, how your channel doesn't have a bigger following I don't know. I love resin art and it's something I'm looking to get into as a hobby :). Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. I will subscribe to you immediately. I will also be there when you hit your first 100k subscribers. Wonderful momentum you have– prolific, imaginative, inventive, and quality work.
    Answer me this: where did you get the gold cards? The plastic is great as you don't need to seal and the gold adds the dimension you lose as you do with crystal inclusions.

    Where did you get the them?

  3. Those 24-carat gold cards are beautiful by themselves but what you have done to them totally stepped it up a gear they look absolutely amazing with the resin on them, everything looks amazing, by any chance do you sell these resin products that you make, amazing work, loved it : ) xoxo

  4. Where did you find the "Alice" charms? Thank You! Love, Love, LOVE your channel!
    Keep up your Fabulously Fabulousnesses! 😊😍

  5. I need one of those cutting boards. Another great video! πŸ‘πŸ₯°. Would love to have info on your supplies here.

  6. that mold you put the Queens in…i have seen it bigger on the net.and its grey…does anyone know where to buy them..amazon and firemountain, or sophie and toffee dont carry them

  7. I have a deck of these sitting on my desk that I never used and I've been interested in resin art for a while… Looks like I found my first project! Amazing

  8. Where did you get the rectangle mold? I have searched high and low for that kind of mold. YOU do wonderful work by the way πŸ™‚

  9. I was in England with my class for a week and we were a group of four and all card player and everyone bought a game. Your videos are amazing. Good job!

  10. Absolutely gorgeous! I stumbled upon this channel by accident but I love the videos ove seen so far! My 1 year old will watch them with me they are so relaxing! With that being said those cards are beautiful I dont think i could bring myself to cut them !

  11. Pretty cards and the resin made the gold detail pop, loved that. The pyramid!!! Thanks captivating videos, you may not talk but they are pact with info.

  12. I am in awe how on earth did you manage to dome the pieces without the resin pouring off the sides (which it would do for me!) . well done for a beautiful project

  13. Oh my gosh! how clever of an idea πŸ™‚ My granddaughter just got a new job at US Playing cards. I am looking for Christmas ideas ( yes, in June, all crafters will understand this, LOL)
    Thanks for this, Blessings for your creativity and for sharing them with us !!

  14. I was wondering where you got the extra charms? They are absolutely adorable and I would love to have them. I love all of your tutorials! Thank you so much for the awesome works you create and share and for the many awesome ideas! 😍🀩

  15. These are all beautiful!!! On the items that you domed straight onto the card pieces, how do you finish the edges? If both sides are simply domed, the edges will remain unfinished. If the pendants/charms get wet, they could come apart since the two sides of the resin are not attached to each other, they are only attached to the card pieces.

  16. Amazing! I gather anything can be captured in these poxy creations magical or otherwise. You really have me thinking about this. I'd really love to incorporate a tarot deck and add corresponding crystals/stones, etc. I'm following…. πŸŒ πŸ’ŽπŸ‘€

  17. This is really relaxing to watch, but I keep getting distracted by your incorrect use of the term β€œcarat.”

  18. where did you get the cards? I looked at Amazon but they only had ones with Ben Franklin's face on the back.

  19. すごい!
    ほしい!
    う぀くしい!
    ( οΉ‘ο½₯α΄—ο½₯ )b Good!!

  20. This video gave me some great ideas for an old tarot deck I don't use after a few cards were water damaged. There are plenty of others I could use thought. Thanks for the great video.

  21. Just a heads up it's traditional in cards to always have the lowest card on top. Example..the blackjack coaster should have the Jack laid over the Ace and the K,Q,J of diamonds should be laid the other way. Not trying to be a dick..just for next time.

  22. Hi resin ace. I just want to say that i really like all your videos, and you got me hooked on resin art. Im a beginner trying your card project with uv resin, and it was bowed. Any ideas on how to fix that from happening? Or is it best just to use epoxy resin. Love you work.
