This shop is a small online store on Etsy that has raving reviews. People are loving the kits that you can buy from here, and they can even be customized as Suzanne, the shop owner, hand dyes the fabrics she sells in her shop herself. Wow.
Here is what Suzanne has to say about the Felting Scarf Kit:
"This kit (above) contains an unhemmed hand dyed habotai silk scarf which is approximately 11" X 90", 28 gms of my super soft merino roving and 5/8 of a yard of silk and bamboo or silk tussah roving. Make a beautiful scarf ! Colors are variegated copper with turquoise and blue greens. I call this bohemian -- it's very striking!"

And the reviews are great, like this one, which gave her 5 stars: "I was a little intimidated tackling this project without previous experience but your detailed instructions were easy to follow and my scarf came out beautifully!

Resin art is making a huge wave in the crafting world because of the amazing results everyone is getting and the versatility of the craft. You can make almost anything from resin. So here are some resin crafting ideas for you to consider.
Our very own resin e-book will teach your resin artist tips, tricks and some amazing advice on working with resin. It covers everything from what to know about resin, what you can make with resin, resin safety, an A-Z resin index and more.
Besides being the best e-book for resin, it makes a great gift for crafters who are interested in getting into resin art or for crafters who are already resin artists.
You can download the book onto their computer, onto a jump drive and gift it to them, or you can print it either from your own computer, or send it to a printing service and have it printed into a gorgeous resin book.
The resin crafter in your life will thank you for this one.
There are many epoxy resin artists who are finding long clear quartz crystals to add to their resin art. Real crystals can be hard to find, but these bulk crystals from Amazon have very high reviews and would make a great gift for a resin crafter.
They come in 30-50 pieces per order and vary in size. They are natural, unsorted and com from the Harena Mine. Because they are natural, there are some which may have a bit of a hue, but if you want real crystals these would do the job.
Fire glass is what is found in those gorgeous modern fireplaces. It is that sparkly, reflective glass found at the bottom of these fireplaces. This fire glass makes a beautiful, reflective effect with resin.
Here is the supplier that is best for using fire glass in resin art. This supplier does not tumble the glass before you get it, so it is extremely reflective and luminous. Plus, it is tempered and it is also available in 10lb. jars so you can do big projects with it. You can also choose between 1/2 size pieces and 1/4 size pieces.
If you have a resin crafter in your life, they are going to fully appreciate a new heat gun. If the resin is being poured resin in layers, this heat gun will work beautifully on each layer.
The heat allows the resin consistency to become more fluid so the bubbles are able to escape to the surface and pop.
Here is another top gift for resin crafters, and they will thank you for this one. Many resin artists don't have the proper respirator mask when working with resin. This one size respirator mask has filters that are rated N95 equivalent and they filter gasses and organic vapors.
This safety mask also ticks off the boxes for comfort (as best a full face mask respirator can) as it has a 'flex-fit' head harness, which means it stays in position once you adjust it to your head. It is silicone-based around the nasal area, so it is as comfortable as it can be. It also has 5 very easy to adjust straps which can be tightened with just one pull.
The PD-100 mask from Parcil is a one-size-fits all mask due to its adjustable harness. It also has an anti-fog face lens, so don't worry about your breath fogging up the inside visor!
This respirator is a lightweight mask and has high-density elastic straps to make sure the mask actually stays in the place you set it at. No constant adjusting while you are creating your resin art. Simply put it on, adjust it, and forget about it. And if you crafter is into other forms of art, this respirator mask is a one stop shop for so many craft projects, which is another reason we love it. The versatility of this respirator is amazing, we use it for spray painting art, alcohol ink art, woodworking, sanding and more.
And to make sure you get the proper mask and not a knock off, we recommend purchasing it directly from the company, especially since it comes with a 1-year factory warranty.
If you are wanting to buy some resin as a gift idea for a crafter, then ArtResin is a fantastic choice to go with. It is multi-purpose, non-toxic and is easy to work with.
We have worked with ArtResin for many projects and this is one of our favorite epoxy resins to work with. This resin is super easy to use and has a 1:1 ratio of resin to hardener.
ArtResin is high gloss so and is often used for jewelry pieces, thin pours or molds and geodes among other countless craft projects. This is also one of the best resins for making your own dried flower pendants.
These paint pens are perfect for resin art because they have a fine tip. This makes them very easy to get those fine lines. We like this particular set because it comes with six pens so if you are making a lot of geodes to sell, you will always have some spares on hand. Nothing like running out of a white paint pen when you need it most.
These paint pens are very versatile. They can work on a number of surfaces if your crafter is into painting, canvas art, cardmaking or more. We highly recommend these paint pens as a gift idea for any crafter.
