Transparent epoxy resin is used to create different Souvenirs with full confidence can be called works of art. Particularly impressive look created by the composition of the simulation, for example, a burning candle. If you want to make a souvenir with your own hands, you can use the following guide.
- flexible thin plastic sheet;
- epoxy resin;
- UV-curable epoxy resin;
- dyes (white, black, red, yellow, blue);
- LEDs 2 PCs.
- holder box with battery CR2032.
The process of making
To simulate a candle, need to roll of flexible sheet plastic tube. It’s set butt on any surface on top of the plasticine ball. Outside form is attached with glue. Then the surface must be lifted from one end, so it warped.
Next, mix resin with hardener and painted with white.
Thereafter, the mixture was poured into the mold.
After hardening of the resin, the form is disassembled, and the clay removed.
Plexiglas is made in the form of boxes.
First glued 3 sides, and on the existing side wall is glued to the bottom previously molded candle.
Opposite the place where should be its wick in the wall of the drilled hole forms.
Through it start twisted wire 2 LEDs.
They must bend as in the photo, and then painted with white paint.
Next you need to take a piece of cord, burn it to soot, soak with superglue for rigidity and paste a candle to simulate it to be crafty. The lace is glued on the wires of the LEDs. At the point of junction of the wires are painted with black paint.
To simulate spread the wax, you need to tint white UV-curable epoxy resin. She’s filled in the recess on the candle, then the candle is turned to droplets drained through the wires to the form. Immediately required to educate the resin UV flashlight that otvergla.
Next you need to be crafty to tint red and yellow paint to simulate the decay. Then of transparent UV resin is a flame template in the form of large drops.
He is glued to the fuse. After that is poured into it by drops tinted UV resin: white, yellow, red, blue. It is necessary to reconstruct the visibility of the flame.
After this form doukomplektovat missing walls and filled with a conventional transparent epoxy. After hardening of the plexiglass is broken.
The workpiece bottom polivaetsya tinted in white resin to remove the transparency. Then gather and glue to the bottom sides for the installation of the batteries.
Next, the workpiece is flipped on its sides and is set on a flat surface. On its outer contour exhibited another side. In the resulting form filled tinted in blue epoxy resin.
After hardening of the acrylic breaks down, and souvenir pasted inside the holder box with the battery, soldered the power wires of the LEDs. When enabled, they will create the impression of a burning wick.
