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.
