Miniature Water Bottles - UV Resin Magic Glos (Lisa Pavelka) Tutorial

I've been trying to make these mini water bottles for so long, and finally I'm finished!

Initially I used resin to make the bottles, but the resin reacted with the purple mold putty I was using and caused tons of unwanted bubbles. So, I switched to Magic-Glos (after months of going back and forth because of the cost).

Magic-Glos cures in sunlight or with a UV light. I found the Magic-Glos and the UV light at Hobby Lobby. I got the UV light for 1/2 off with the coupon, so YAY!

I added the labels for each bottle above. I made them in Photoshop for fun, so you're free to use them, share, and make your own :)

Have Fun!

  9. There are many shot glass brands coming up in the market but not all are of suitable quality or type. Make sure you study and understand every little aspect before buying the glass. There are some Online shot glasses that will remain with you for years once kept properly and is served in effective way. To unique shot glasses remember to consider the important points.

  10. I was wondering about the sizes of the bottles you made. I planned to design in photoshop first before i move ahead toward final product.
