  • Pineapples are all the rage and for my daughters 13th birthday we were going with the fun pineapple theme! I found the coolest ice cube tray that happened to be in silicone, sooo I decided to keep a “cube” to see if I could make her a necklace.

    Step 1: : Carefully cut a piece of mold to fill with Ice Resin. Mix ICE Resin® according to instructions. Very slowly pour away from the sand, the Resin will eventually cover it.

    Step 2: : It will be unstable so you will need to put it inside a small bowl with rice or in my case art stones.

    Step 3: Funny, I was working on yellow and clueless as if i was getting my color right. I took a bit out and checked it inside a small handmade mold.

    Step 4: Wait for your Resin to start setting and super carefully add the tiniest drop with your toothpick of the emerald tint on the pineapple foliage.
    Warning: The color will want to resist staying only on the foliage and will likely gravitate towards the pineapple body. Just go this on a day when you can watch it every other hour and using the toothpick push back the color in its place!

    Step 5: I couldn’t wait to reveal the mold contents and see what had happened overnight, my daughter either!!! It was absolutely perfect. She loves the frosted look so there was no need for a second pour on top to make it shiny.

    Step 6: I wrapped the base in wire and attached it to the necklace and voila a brand new teenager was super happy!
