Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to share my first experience making a tumbler with the new Spin It turner and its accessories!
To make a tumbler you’ll need: the Spin It turner, spray glue, glitter, epoxy kit, gloves, popsicle sticks, wax paper to protect your surface and a cute vinyl design.
The Spin It tool plugs into a USB power source making it easier to use!
For this first experience, I used a spray glue but you can also use Modge Podge with a brush. Make sure to tape off the bottom and top of the cup before spraying the glue.
I wanted a fun blue ombré so I went for silver, soft blue and navy for the color combo. I started on top of the cup with the lightest one : silver. Then I put back the glitter into the bottle thanks to the glitter clean up tray. I continued with the soft blue and finally the navy. Just let the Spin It turn at the lowest speed to be sure to put glitter everywhere! Smooth the color transitions with your fingers.
When the glitter is set up and the glue is completely dry, prepare your epoxy resin with solution A and solution B. Don’t forget to wear gloves all along the epoxy process since it’s a chemical product. Also, be sure to read all the instructions before trying it! Keep your windows open unless you craft outside. A and B must have the same volume ratio before being mixed togerther.
Gently pour the expoxy on the tumbler then use your hand (with gloves!) to spread the resin all over it. Once you’re done with it, remove the tape then let the tumbler on the Spin It turner for about 4 hours. And here is the beautiful result!
Let’s add some fun with a vinyl design from the Spin It range. I chose to use the llama design.
The vinyl is on a transfer paper that you directly apply on the tumbler then take it off like a rubon.
Once the vinyl is perfectly in place, repeat the epoxy process and let the Spin It turn for about 4 hours. Take off the tape before letting the epoxy dry. The tumbler needs to dry 24 hours to be completely finished.
And voilà! Here is my first tumbler! I hope you had fun joining me for this super cool experience.
Happy creating everyone and until next time!
