Potter DIY: “Harry Potter” Keychains
Looking for an easy gift or a simple way to Potter up your life? Follow the steps below to make a set of resin-based keychains in the Hogwarts House colors.
What You’ll Need:
- Equal parts A and B resin
- Plastic cups
- A measuring cup
- Mica powder (or dyes)
- A heat gun (or a lighter)
- Harry Potter molds (here are some similar ones; the crests are from Glitter Flow on Instagram)
- Mixing sticks
Step 1: Pour equal parts of resins A and B into a cup (about 2 oz), and stir for four minutes until both parts are mixed well.
Step 2: Divide the mixture into four smaller cups and add your dye of choice (red, yellow, green, blue), then mix each well.
Step 3: In the mold, add corresponding colored glitter to the bottom, and then add the color resin to each mold.
Step 4: Apply a heat gun or a lighter to the outside of the mold to keep any bubbles from forming, and wait for 24 hours (or until the resin is completely set) before unmolding.
