Silver Playing Cards with $100 Bill Reverse in Epoxy Resin to Make Jewellery, Coasters, Paperweight


For this project I’m using clear cast epoxy art resin This resin has a 2A:1B mix ratio by weight Pour just enough resin to cover the base of the mould Run a cocktail stick around the edges and into the corners to dislodge any bubbles Use a flame to pop any surface bubbles and allow to cure Cut a piece of playing card to fit the mould, and pour a small amount of resin into the centre Place the card onto the resin, and press down gently to squeeze out the resin at the sides This will help to avoid trapped air underneath Completely fill the mould to the top and allow 24 hours to cure Drill a hole for the jump ring Exactly the same process is used for these coasters. If you use more than one card, tape them together first. The pyramid mould should be filled almost to the top for the first pour This pendant mould already has a hole for a cord or chain A home-made cuff link mould, for people with 3 cuffs? For the domed pieces, simply cut the cards to the required shape with scissors Slowly apply resin to the surface, just enough that it almost reaches the edge by itself Use a cocktail stick to encourage the resin to the edge, and into the corners As long as you don’t drag the resin over the edge it won’t flood If you need to pop any surface bubbles just use a flame as normal, but be fast and avoid heating the resin Once the resin has cured you can flip them over and dome the other side Drill any holes required for your chains or jewellery findings These are called pinch bails Gold also suits the silver cards very well Score the back of the cuff links before applying 5-minute epoxy adhesive I’m sure Benjamin Franklin won’t mind! You only need a tiny spot of adhesive

  1. You’re pieces are beautiful! Those cards!!! I’ve been hesitant to buy a pyramid mold, but this just made my decision. I love to make paperweights and yours is excellent. I’m glad I found your channel!

  2. So amazingly creative. I love each piece I saw. Gives me a whole different perspective of playing cards and their usefulness. Great video

  3. I watched and loved the gold series and love this one just as much. I bought the gold cards and I'm in the process of making the Black Jack coaster. Wish me luck!!

  4. Ces cartes (argent ou or) sont magnifiques mais le sont encore plus avec la rΓ©sine, le rΓ©sultat est super.. Merci encore pour cette vidΓ©o. Excellent travail. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜

  5. Those cards look cool, worth being put in resin! Good job!

    From the title at first I thought you're gonna destroy a 100$ xD!

  6. I watched the gold card edition to and I wanted to try it so bad. I brought a deck of shiny black cards with gold and silver deco on the face and a gold star pattern on the back. What epoxy would you recommend?

  7. β€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈπŸ‘πŸ‘. I love the GOLD ones you did as well! Love these cards!

  8. Three cuffs! That did make me chuckle! 😁 Well done on another great video, the resin really brings out the hologram effect. Awesome! πŸ’•πŸ˜Ž

  9. Just catching up with youtube, what a fantastic array of resin casts, they look a thousand dollars! πŸ˜πŸ™„

  10. For the blackjack coaster I was wondering, if my 3m two sided tape is going to make a good seal? I just received my order, I bought the gold silver and a black diamond. I'm so excited to try these out. Well prob give it a go this weekend. Thank you for sharing another wonderfully creative idea.

  11. They're really stunning, but I think the gold ones had the edge… just. I did like the combination of the gold chain with the silver cards, though.

    Have you thought about selling some of your stuff, perhaps on Etsy?
