Hello Clearsnap fans! Lisa Marie Jimenez here, showing you how to make this DIY Happy Halloween Sign. In this tutorial I use Izink Pigment Inks, distributed by Clearsnap®, to add color to casting resin. While shopping at craft store I saw a Halloween themed silicone cake molds and because they were so cute, I had to get them. I used these molds to make the embellishments for this project. Izinks are acrylic based pigment ink, which make them perfect for coloring resin.

Pour the resin into the mold. Because these are deep cake molds, you will only be filling the mold ¼ of the way. Continue this step for the pumpkin using Safran and Jasmine for the ghost and skull.Coloring resin with Izink by Lisa Marie Jimenez

Allow the resin to harden according to manufacturer’s instructions. When resin is hard, remove from molds. Paint the eyes and mouths of the characters with black craft paint.

Paint the wood sign with black paint. If needed give a second coat. Lay out stencils and secure to wood with painters tape. Stencil letters using white craft paint.
