Picture of How To Make Bitchin' Resin Photo Magnets!

Step 1: Materials

Jar lids, spray paint (I like to paint the jar lids so they look pretty), scissors, paint brush, mod podge, Easy Cast clear casting epoxy, glitter, glitter glue, images (these can be photos, magazine images, drawings, whatever!) children's medicine measuring cups, a jar for mixing, a plastic knife, magnets. All these things are things you already own or can be found and purchased at Hobby Lobby.

Hi Kait! I like this instructable. Do you know how UV resistant the Easy Cast Resin is? I have an idea, but it will get a lot of sunlight and I don't want it to yellow. I looked on the web and found some others, but they seem to be pricey and often larger quantities. Thanks for sharing your project. Bill

What you can do is instead of using the matte mod podge for sealing your images like I used is use the special paper mod podge instead. It is supposed to have archival qualities and keeps photos and paper from yellowing. Good luck! Hope I was helpful!
It would probably help if I would be more descriptive. I'm wanting to make an emblem for a car. I'm not worried about the image fading or deteriorating. I was more wondering if the Easy Cast Resin would yellow if the car was out in the sun which we have a lot of in Texas! BTW I see you're in Albuquerque. That's were I was born -- quite a while ago though. :)

It is true you can use bottle caps too! The only thing is that they are tiny! Jar lids give you move space!
Hi kaitquetal! I think these are absolutely adorable! My mother has an insane habit of saving jars. While some are useful to store things, most of them are a pain in the patootie. Especially when we start arguing about who's the bigger pack rat. You have given me an idea of what to do with if not the jar itself, certainly the lids. Thanks! I'm going give this a try!

This works well with bottle caps as well, and you don't want/need to paint them.
