  • Castin’Craft Clear Polyester Casting Resin
  • Transparent Dye in any color we used a blue color
  • Castin’Craft Mold Release & Conditioner
  • EasyCast Resin Jewelry Molds
  • Gloves disposable mixing/measuring cups, wooden craft sticks, paper towels
  • Drill or Drill Press with 3/16” diamond drill bit
  • Clear Monofilament Thread also known as fishing line
  • Wooden Dowel I used a piece of driftwood
  • Scissors


  • Work in a well ventilated area and be sure to read all the instructions on the product packaging before beginning your project.
  • Apply a mold release agent to the jewelry molds and put aside to dry.
  • Pour the clear polyester resin into a measuring cup.
  • Add the catalyst to the resin. You’ll need to follow the instructions on the packaging for your specific project.
  • Stir continuously for 1 minute, scraping the sides and bottom of the container as you mix.
  • Since I wanted to include some clear “seaglass” to my ombre colored wall hanging,  I filled some of the jewelry molds with the clear mixture.
  • Next, add one drop (a very small amount) of transparent blue dye to the same clear mixture. Stir together until the dye is a uniform color.
  • Fill your desired jewelry molds with the light blue mixture.
  • Repeat this step one more time to have 3 different shades of blue charms. You can continue these steps as many times as you like to achieve the desired look.
  • Cover the pieces to keep dust out and let cure overnight.
  • After 24 hours, remove the pieces from the mold. They should easily pop out of the jewelry molds.

Preparing the Faux Seaglass for a Wall Hanging:

  • Roughly lay out the “seaglass” as you want them to hang on a flat and level surface.
  • Using a 1/16″ drill bit, drill a small hole at the top of each piece. You can stick a needle through the hole to clear the hole and push out any of the resin shavings.
  • Starting at the bottom, begin to fasten the seaglass together by threading the fishing line through the drilled holes. Space each piece as you like and add a single knot at the top to hold the faux seaglass in place.
  • Once each piece of faux seaglass is fastened along the fishing line, tie each strand to the wooden dowel (or driftwood in my case). Repeat for all 4 strands evenly spacing the strands apart.
