9 BEST Gifts For Resin Artists [2022]

Gift Ideas For Resin Artists

Here are the best gifts for resin artists and people who make epoxy resin crafts, jewelry, geode resin art and more.

You must have a resin artist in your life if you are here! We have found many amazing resin products, and ideas that will make a fabulous gift idea for a resin artist.

Let's get right into those gift ideas for resin artists!

Best Gifts For Resin Artists

1. Bulk Crystals

Check Price On Amazon

So many epoxy resin geode artists are finding long clear quartz crystals to add to their geode resin art. Real crystals can be hard to find, but these bulk crystals from Amazon have very high reviews.

They come in 30-50 pieces per order and vary in size. They are unsorted and are natural, sourced from the Harena Mine and because they are natural, there are some which may have a bit of a hue. If you want real crystals these would do the job.

2. Fire Glass 

Check the prices on Amazon

Do you know what fire glass is? Think of those gorgeous modern fireplaces with that sparkly, reflective glass at the bottom. We found a supplier that 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.

These make great gifts for resin artists who love to work on geode resin art.

3. A Heat Gun For Bubbles

Check Price On Amazon

One of the best gifts you can get a resin artist is a heat gun to pop the bubbles. And it is so satisfying to watch them pop haha. If you are pouring resin in layers, you will want to use the heat gun for each layer.

The heat allows the resin consistency to become more fluid so the bubbles are able to escape to the surface and pop. This is one of the must have supplies for resin artists.

You can also compare the Zap heat gun with other heat gun prices. Here is a selection of different heat guns for price comparison on Amazon right here for you.

4. A Flame Torch

Check Price On Amazon

A torch provides a higher level of heat than a heat gun can and many resin artists prefer using a torch over a heat gun for that reason. However, there is some discussion in the resin community for those artists who like to color their resin with alcohol ink.

Alcohol is flammable, but there is such a small amount of alcohol ink required to color resin with. So it is just something to keep in mind.

5. Respirator For Resin Fumes

Get The PD-100 Respirator Mask From Parcil Right Here

Many resin artists don't have the proper respirator mask when working with resin. This 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 to make sure you get the proper mask and not a knock off, I recommend purchasing it directly from the company, especially since it comes with a 1-year factory warranty.

6. Epoxy Resin

Check Price On Amazon

Epoxy resin is a must have and it's pretty expensive so it definitely makes a great gift idea.

We have worked with many different resins for projects and have a ton of resources for the best resin on our blog.

Epoxy resin is high gloss so your jewelry pieces, thin pours or molds and geodes will turn out super clear and shiny. Resin is also good for making your own dried flower pendants and a must have resin for jewelry making.

Check out this tutorial using epoxy resin from Resin Obsession on Etsy.

 

7. Resin Colorants 

Check Price On Amazon

Using resin colorants is one of the funnest parts when creating resin crafts. We have searched and searched and have tried so many different ones and have found some great colors that would make a great gift idea.

If you are looking for some amazing colors to add to resin, head on over to the blog post that features some of the best colorants for resin.

8. Paint Pens

Check Price On Amazon

Paint pens are perfect for geode resin art because they have a fine tip so it's super easy to get those fine geode lines.

This particular set makes a great gift idea because it comes with six pens so if your resin artist is making a lot of geodes to sell, they will always have some spares on hand. Nothing like running out of a white pen when you need it!

Watch this tutorial creating some beautiful geode resin art below. In this YouTube video tutorial, we use the Sharpie paint pens to draw our lines on at the end. See if you like how it looks!

With silicone resin molds, the possibilities are endless. Whether your loved one is into making tiny trinkets or large sculptures, they'll be able to find a mold that suits their needs. Plus, silicone resin molds are easy to use and clean.
