UV Resin Rabbit With Dried Flowers

Some days you just need to make something quick, cute and fun to gift.
My purple bunny will be added to a gift topper.

I created the bunny in three layers.
Layer one was clear with the inclusions added.
Layer two was purple coloured resin.
Layer three was a clear final top coat.

I used UV resin, which cures in minutes under a UV lamp.
The resin I used is this one linked here. 

My bunny was created by working backwards.
In other words, the bottom of the mold becomes the top when you remove the cured resin.

I added the tiny screw when my resin was cured so I could turn it into a key chain/dangle.

I purchased this Japanese bunny mold project when I was in Hawaii at a Ben Franklin store.  I wrote about this in 2016 in a blog post linked here.
I have not found these "My Craft Series" resin project kits anywhere else.
Everything you need, along with English translations of the step by step are in the bag.
You just need to find UV resin.  I added some links to Amazon in case you have never seen UV resin.

It screws in just like it would if it was wood.
