Watch my video all about Epoxy safety here:

PLEASE READ FIRST: Epoxy resin is toxic while it is curing, and safety precautions must be taken. Wear proper protective equipment (nitrile gloves, long sleeves, full-face respirator, and apron) and work outside or in a well-ventilated area. Do not allow epoxy resin to touch your skin or be inhaled through fumes or dust. If you get some on your skin, wash it twice well with soap and water. Always read the safety information!

This video teaches you the complete process of making DIY glitter tumblers, from selecting the right tumblers and adhesive to applying the glitter and epoxy resin to create a tumbling/curing rack to prevent drips! I break it down step by step to make it EASIER for you to have success!

Glitter tumblers are stainless steel insulated mugs and cups that you glitter, seal, and decorate! They are VERY popular because you can personalize them and they look FABULOUS when they are all done. Also, the sealing process completely protects the vinyl decal so you never need to worry about it coming off.

The process to make a glitter tumbler may seem complicated, but I’m going to take you through it step-by-step.

There are 11 steps to the perfect glitter tumbler:
Step 1: Prepare and tape your tumblers for the glitter. 
Step 2: (Optional) Spray paint your tumblers.
Step 3: Put adhesive on your tumblers and glitter them.
Step 4: Seal the glitter on your tumblers with a clear coat.
Step 5: Prepare a way to rotate your tumblers while they cure.
Step 6: Mix and apply high gloss resin to your glitter tumblers using proper safety precautions.
Step 7: Remove your tape after 30 minutes (and before 45 minutes)
Step 8: After five hours, tape your tumblers and sand them. Wear protection!
Step 9: (Optional) Apply your vinyl decal.
Step 10: Apply your second cost of resin.
Step 11: Remove your tape after 30 minutes (and before 45 minutes) and allow your tumbler to cure for 24-48 hours.

The difference between the extra fine glitter and chunk glitter really comes down to personal preference. The extra fine glitter is definitely more sleep and smooth, but not as sparkly.
