The original plan for this project was to make glow in the dark crayon rings but the execution did not work. The glow powder did not work in the crayons and the rings fell apart quickly, if they even made it out of the molds.
Oh well… the best laid plans, right? Plan B was acrylic and they turned out great! They aren’t as fun as the crayons in my opinion but the kids still love them. I’m putting that in the win column.
- Protective Gloves
- Epoxy Resin Solution
- Glow in the Dark Mica Powder
- Small Plastic Cups
- Wooden Popsicle Sticks
- Silicone Ring Molds
First, get your rings molds out of the packaging so that you can access them easily even with gloves on.
Next put on your protective gloves. You don’t want to get the resin solution on your hands.
Now pull out 5 small plastic cups and 5 popsicle sticks.
Select your 5 mica powder colors (purple, yellow, orange, blue, and green) and open them. Don’t put them into the cups yet but you want them open so you can add them to your resin solution as soon as it’s mixed.
Next, mix small amounts of your resin solution in each cup according to the package directions. I used one teaspoon of each component in each cups. 2 teaspoons is more than enough solution for one ring.
As soon as your resin solution is mixed, add 1/2 a package of one mica powder color to each cup and mix thoroughly.
Next fill each ring mold with one of your colors.
- Do this on a protected surface because it is super messy, especially if you are a first-timer with acrylic.
- If I make this again, I would invest in droppers to transfer the resin solutions to the molds. That would make the process much easier.
Set your filled molds in a safe place to cure for at least 24 hours.
After your rings have cured for 24 hours, remove them from your molds and continue to cure an additional 48 hours.
If necessary, you can gently file and buff your rings before wearing.
These DIY glowing Avengers infinity stone rings are so much fun in the dark. Unfortunately, the purple one didn’t turn out. I think somehow the solution ratio got messed up because even after 3 days in the mold it didn’t set up. Let that be a warning to make sure you mix your solution parts exactly.
The kids tried to talk me into letting them take a bath with just these rings as lights, but I’m not quite brave enough for that mess. For now, they’ll have to settle for dueling it out in their rooms at night!
Now, let’s see all of the projects and recipes my friends created this month!

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
