Tatting in resin final

Tatting in resin, final. Hello everyone! I hope you weren’t scared by my long, long, long story of how I do tatting in resin. Because in fact, this process is not so complicated and long. You will need only attention and accuracy for successful execution. And of course, I would really like to see more of your feedback and comments, please.

So, the last time we stopped at the second fill. I usually leave molds with resin for 2 days. Because during this time, the resin completely hardens.

I release frozen products from molds. Unfortunately, not all molds have openings. Therefore, I have to do it myself.

I use a small hand drill and drills with a diameter of 2 mm.

When drilling holes, you must place the product on a flat surface. But be sure to lay a cloth so that your resin does not get scratched. You do not want to spoil this beauty! Yes?

Now that all the products have holes,

I insert paper clips into these holes.

After all, now the time has come to varnish finished products. And it’s very convenient for me to hold the products by a paper clip. I rotate the frozen resin in different directions and apply the protective varnish evenly. Very easy!

Then I hang up the varnished items to dry. By the way, I use my cake molds and long knitting needles. And I MANDATORY hide my products from the sun (I cover it with a cloth again).

I strictly adhere to the instructions of the varnish manufacturer. Therefore, I repeat the process in 2-3 hours. That is, I varnish the product twice!

Look what happens to the resin, which I did not hide from the sun during the work and did not varnish.

Finally, the finishing touch remained! I attach the necessary metal fittings.

And finally, “cherry on the cake”! This is my branded packaging. Next time I will talk about this in detail.

Hooray! I did it! My long story “Tatting in the resin” is over. Ask questions in the comments, subscribe to my blog to be in the know!

  1. Beautiful story by a very creative artisan!

    1. Oh, thank You so much for kind words, dear Polina!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences. I have this idea to create coasters with my tatting inside for attendees at a family reunion next summer and I will be attempting to follow your instructions. Wish me luck! ha!
    I have a question about varnishing. What varnish do you use and will it be necessary to varnish my coasters?
    I may have other questions as I go along on this journey. I hope you don’t mind if I ask them. Thank you so much for taking time to outline how to do tatting in resin.

    1. Thanks so much for the wonderful words, Amy! It is very important for me.
      I wish you good luck, of course!
      About varnishing. I do not know what resin and varnish you use. But my advice is this: make a small piece of your resin for the experiment. Put this finished product on the windowsill. In a few days you will see if this resin needs to be varnished. In short, practice, practice, practice!
      And yes, I am always ready to answer your questions with pleasure.

  3. Thank you so much for this series of posts! I have toyed with the idea of doing a few things in resin, but never actually done it. I did not know that varnishing the finished project was necessary! I’m guessing the varnish blocks UV and is resistant to scratches?
    Your work is professional and exacting. I love watching what you do.
    Merry Christmas,
