Eco friendly Resin Sparkle Mix Colours can be added to any resin jewellery. It can also be kneaded into translucent polymer clay or brushed on before baking. This sparkle mix contains plant based vegan glitter, lab mica (meaning guaranteed not to have been mined by children). You can read about the use of child labour in the mica industry in Lush’s blog here and the importance of sourcing synthetic mica. The sparkle mix also includes small amounts of plant-based opalescent flakes too which show different colours in different lights!
Using Resin Sparkle Mix Colours
Resin Sparkle Mix Colours work beautifully in epoxy and UV resin. The resulting colour and shade will depend on how much of the mix you use, how it’s placed and your other additions, inclusions and elements. Cremation ashes, for example, vary in colour from white through to browns, greys and black. Please make sure you tell your clients you cannot guarantee a shade but feel free to show them Tree of Opals watermarked images until you have your own stock images. You may share Tree of Opals stock images with attribution (you must say that the images are courtesy of Tree of Opals) on your website and social media but you must not crop out the watermark.
Simply premix with resin then pour this into your mould, or push it into a mould already filled with resin. You can also add your clients’ elements or inclusions like breastmilk, lock of hair, umbilical cord and placenta or cremation ashes. Then cure in the usual way. Or you can add your resin to the mould before adding the forget-me-not flowers.

If working with UV resin we recommend you work in layers to achieve beautiful depths of colour.
