•	How to add Pictures in RESIN ? Is lamination Required?
  • Choosing the Right Images

    When selecting images for your resin project, consider the following:

    • High resolution: Choose images with good clarity and sharpness.
    • Size: Ensure that the images fit well within your project.
    • Theme: Select images that align with the overall theme or concept of your project.

    Preparing the Images

    Before adding the images to resin, it's important to prepare them properly:

    1. Print or cut the images to the desired size.
    2. Seal the images: Apply a thin layer of sealant, such as Mod Podge, to protect the images from discolouration or bleeding.
    3. Let the sealant dry completely before proceeding.

    Adding Images to RESIN

    Follow these steps to add pictures to your resin project:

    1. Mix the resin according to the manufacturer's instructions.
    2. Pour a thin layer of resin into your mould or project container.
    3. Place the prepared images onto the resin layer.
    4. Use a toothpick or a small brush to gently press out any air bubbles trapped under the images.
    5. Pour another layer of resin over the images, ensuring they are fully covered.
    6. Allow the resin to cure according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    Is Lamination Required?

    While lamination is not always necessary when adding pictures to resin, it can provide additional protection and durability. Lamination involves encasing the images in a thin layer of clear film or plastic before embedding them in resin. This extra step can help prevent the images from fading or getting damaged over time.

    However, if you have already sealed the images with a suitable sealant, lamination may not be required. The sealant will offer some level of protection against moisture and UV rays.

    Ultimately, the decision to laminate the images depends on the specific project and your desired level of longevity.

    By following these steps and considering the need for lamination, you can successfully add pictures to resin and create beautiful, personalized resin projects.
