Can I Embed Objects In Clear Resin?

Posted on 7 Oct 16:02
You can embed all kinds of objects into epoxy resin - it works great! There's no limit as to what you can embed into ArtResin: for example, you can embed beer caps, flowers, beads, shells, pennies or coins and many other objects, so let your imagination go! 

  • Working in layers no thicker than 1/8", pour an initial layer of resin over the surface of your piece to hold the objects in place.
  • Next, with gloved hands drop the objects into the wet resin, in whatever pattern you desire.  
  • Torch and cover to protect the wet resin from dust.
  • Allow it to dry for at least 3-5 hours, then pour a second coat to cover the objects.
  • For areas of high relief, you may need to pour multiple coats to cover the objects completely.




We have a couple of step-by-step tutorials on how to embed objects into ArtResin on our YouTube page and on our blog.

We have a great blog and video on how to make coasters:
