Glowing Resin Succulents, Three Ways!

When I started playing with these resin succulent molds by Let’s Resin, I had an idea for techniques to use to get a cool glowing effect.

As it turned out, it was SO much easier than I expected it to be!

Succulent plants made in resin molds with a technique that gives them the appearance of an inner glow.

In this video I show how I got my resin pieces to glow, without the use of any lights. I also show a few other techniques that give a different sort of glow.

I hope you take these techniques and do your own explorations. If you come up with something interesting, please share!

This cute home dec arrangement was made after I edited the video.

These are 1 1/2 inch terracotta pots and the tray is five inches in diameter.

Five arranged in tiny terracotta pots on a tray.

The pots were filled 3/4 full with crumpled aluminum foil, then brown polymer clay was added to the top and textured with more crumpled aluminum foil.

I pressed each resin succulent into a pot to make a space for it. Then removed the resin pieces and baked the pots with the polymer clay. (I don’t recommend baking resin!)

After baking you can use super glue to attach each resin succulent to its pot.

Many thanks to the folks at Let’s Resin for sending the resin and molds for me to play with.
