Create Stunning Arts And Crafts With Resin From Spotlight

Spotlight has a gorgeous range of resins for you to use in your art, from trusted resin brands American Crafts (look for their amazing colour pour resin) and Ribtex. Craft resin can be used to make solid 3D shapes or applied as a clear coating over finished art, and it is easy to accessorise with colours and textured accessories.

UV vs epoxy resin

You can find two types of resin at Spotlight:

  • UV resin: This resin comes in a single bottle and hardens when exposed to UV light over a short period of time. It pours easily because it has a low viscosity, but is a little brittle and won't last as well as epoxy resin.
  • Epoxy resin: This resin comes in two separate bottles, which need to be combined to create the hardening effect. It is very durable and long-lasting, with a flexibility that makes it great for use with artwork.

Both types can be coloured and will take extras like glitter, flakes and other add-ons well. Buy your resin parts on their own, or get an epoxy or UV resin kit that has everything you need in one pack.

Resin FAQs

What is resin?

Resin is a clear, viscous chemical substance that, when it cures, becomes a very hard and clear material. It can be coloured using powders and dyes, and craft resin comes in two varieties - UV resin and epoxy resin.

How to use epoxy resin

When preparing your epoxy resin, make sure to follow the instructions for mixing the two parts so you have the perfect ratio. Mix them together slowly to avoid forming bubbles, then pour smoothly and leave it in a well-ventilated room and under a dust cover to cure.

How to polish resin

Hard, cured resin can be wet-sanded, buffed and polished with a microfibre cloth to make it shinier. You can also add another clear layer of resin over the tip of cured resin for a glossy finish.
