Among handmade items, the wide variety of makeover is called “UV resin”. Recently, this cellphone case made of UV resin is very popular!

The UV resin looks difficult at first glance, but it’s actually very easy to use.
Now, let’s learn about UV resin!

What is UV Resin?

First of all, UV resin is one of many kinds of Resin.
Resin is a solid or highly viscous substance of plant or synthetic origin that is typically convertible into polymers.

This resin has a wide variety. This time, we will introduce the types of resins that are often used in handmade products.

Epoxy Resin

You can harden it by mixing two kinds of liquids and causing a chemical reaction.
It is divided into main agent and hardener.
It is very useful because it has the ability to be applied and gives a three-dimensional effect.

The disadvantage is that it takes a little time to cure completely.
One day at the earliest, and three to four days at the longest.
It changes depending on the temperature at that time and the amount used.

UV Resin

This resin will be used for this cellphone case.
Unlike epoxy resin, liquid is not separated and it is completed by one type.
It can be cured by applying ultraviolet rays, but it takes only 5 minutes.
Done in a short period is attractive.

If you don’t have a UV light, you can put it on the sun.
It will take about 30 minutes.
The range of ultraviolet rays is limited, so it’s easy to fail if you try to make it in three dimensions from the beginning.

After it hardens, apply from the top.
By repeating this, you can create a three-dimensional looking.
Currently, you can buy UV resin liquid at dollar stores, so you can try it with a tiny cost.

  • Materials for a decoration

[How To Make]

  1. Paste the design inside the cellphone case.

    I recommend using a masking tape that is easy to peel off. Let’s fix it firmly so it doesn’t slip!
  2. In accordance with the design, draw the design with a color resin. If you harden it little by little, it will be all right even if you touch it with your hand. In order to finish it beautifully, let’s draw it as it hardens little by little.
  3. When finished, apply the transparent UV resin in layers on top and cure.
  4. If you want to place decorative parts such as rhinestones or bullion beads, apply UV resin first, then place the parts and harden.
  5. Done!

Be careful not to let it harden too much or it will get messy!
