Tips and Tricks for DIY Phone Grips
Epoxy resin's versatility lends itself to a variety of crafty applications, including making phone grips and phone grips.
Learning how to make a phone grip typically starts with purchasing a blank version of whatever item you'd like. Blank phone grips can be purchased in multiple colors in bulk online. You will also need either resin phone grip molds! Usually, these molds are made from materials like silicone to prevent epoxy resin from sticking to them.
We recommend reading through the instructions that come with your ProMarine Supplies' ProArt Epoxy Resin, regardless of whether you are familiar with resin products or not. ProArt Epoxy Resin is measured in a 1-to-1 by volume ratio, which makes it easy to use and approachable to work with.
Before you pour and combine the two parts of the ProArt resin, you will want to decide what kind of design you are aiming for. You can approach this in a variety of ways.
If you're looking for something simple, a few layers of glue and some glitter of your choice is an option! Alternatively, you can embed something thin, like a pressed flower, in resin using more basic circular molds.
If you're embedding a flower, keep in mind that dried flowers are more likely to create fewer bubbles in the resin. Also make sure to thoroughly mix the two parts of your epoxy resin to lower the chances of swirls and bubbles.
If you're applying resin to layers of glitter, as previously mentioned, you can use stir sticks to gently push the resin around to get an even coat. This will make a smooth protective layer over your art that guards against corrosion, moisture, and wear-and-tear damage.
Allow any of the resin pieces you've made to cure for the specified amount of time. Lastly, like the flower encapsulation idea, you can use glue to attach the resin to the blank phone grip.
And voila, your custom epoxy resin custom phone grip is complete! Use it to rep your style or gift it as a thoughtful token to a friend!
