    Create this cute miniature ocean / beach / sea in a bottle 🏖 🌊 It's really simple and quick. Simply follow the tutorial to do it yourself!If you're a beginner don't worry, this video is suitable for you!I got all the items super cheap, so if you want the links to anything let me know, as well as any other question or input you may have.I really enjoyed making this resin piece, you can leave it as a room decor, a charm or make it into a necklace! They also make wonderful handmade gifts.Isn't it so magical creating a small scene or world within a bottle? It's one of my favourite things that's for sure!I use UV resin because you skip all the hard part of mixing things separately as you do with epoxy resin, and for beginners this can seem daunting. UV Resin also cures so fast, all you need is a UV torch and a couple of minutes - usually from one minute to six, and your layer would be hard! Epoxy resin you need to wait 24-48 hours for your layer to harden, if you're impatient like me, UV Resin offers the perfect stand-in. It's perfect for small projects like this. If you have a larger project using epoxy resin would probably be better suited.If you have bubbles in your piece, don't worry, it suits the ocean theme rather well, so you can get away with it here.More UV resin tutorials to come, so if you enjoyed this one, subscribe because I'll be making more along with other crafts, all in which are easy, quick to follow and cheap.Have fun crafting!

    Hello there,
    Well you have just opened my craft world a little wider, I have played with epoxy resin. Loved it but in a small house the smell/ventilation was bad and when I look back,some pieces have yellowed.

    Now, how have you opened up my craft world? I have some shadow boxes to do for my daughter and she wants a river in one. I had been experimenting with glues and colours and thought about the resin but it wouldn't dry quick enough to get the effect I would want. That UV resin looks perfect for the job. Thank you. I have given you a like on your youtube page for this reason.

    I don't know this forums etiquette yet so I hope I am not overstepping but if you are up for a little constructive criticism I found the music very distracting, I struggle to hear female voices. You are very softly spoken, which is lovely, but the music overshadows you, if you do ever go back and re-edit please think about turning it down.

      Woohoo! I am so happy it has opened up your creative world! That is so exciting and I am so happy I have helped make that happen!
      That is how I felt when I came across UV Resin and all I can do!
      Epoxy resin has come a long way, you can now find some that are non toxic, but the cure time as well as measuring it all out and mixing, is a pain for me. UV Resin is perfect for manipulating, and quick cure time, finishing and adding layers a lot quicker!
      I also use it to make artificial water!
      You can perhaps use slime if it will be in something like an airtight glass container etc.

      THANK YOU. your feedback is APPRECIATED so much. I ask for feedback on my videos a lot, as I don't sell anything but just love to teach all I know and excite people as I have done with you. I want my videos to be good, so thank you so much. I am 28 and always sound like a kid and so quiet, that is with me speaking up! I will turn the music down lower for future videos if mixed with voice. Watching it back I thought it was low enough but I'm grateful to know that is not the case.
      Thank you once again!!
      If you make your resin water do show it here I would love to see!

        Just watching you build it up and cure it sent little lightbulb moments off...that's how I can make the river...oo I could make mini bottles, or mini lenses for....you get the picture. The boxes will be open to the elements so it needs to be something that sets/cure, which this will be perfect for. Thanks
