If you’re looking for a fun and unique project to get your hands on, have a go with a resin DIY. Working with resin is much easier than you’d think, and the finished, glossy result looks like something professionally made. When creating with this substance, you have two options: construct something completely from resin (ex: a planter) or use the medium alongside other materials (ex: a desktop). Dyes, glitter, and other supplies can be mixed in with the substances to create any look you desire. Here are some projects you can get started on:
