Introduction: Custom Belt Buckle

How to take your own pictures/designs and put them into a rad belt buckle.

Tools you'll need:
Casting Resin
Clear tape
Mixing bowl & mixing tool
Blank belt buckle

Step 1: Tool Time

First, get all your tools together for easy access.

Measure your belt buckle, for picture sizing. (Mine ended up being 2in x 2 3/4in)

Step 2: Picture Time

Next, Select picture you like, and resize it. Then print picture and laminate it using your clear tape.

Step 3: Resin Time

Now, mix your resin and catalyst. (read complete instructions on resin label)
For this project I used 1 oz of resin, mixed with 15 drops of catalyst. I marked out the 1 oz on my mixing bowl to make it easy. Stir well for approx. 60 seconds.

The bubbles will work themselves out for the most part once the resin is drying.

Step 4: Pouring Time

Place your picture into the belt buckle, trim as needed. Then pour resin on top of picture being careful not to overflow it.

Step 5: Drying Time

Let the resin dry fully in the buckle.

Voila! You have a custom belt buckle.
