New Hobby Ideas:

New Hobby: 2-Part Resin

Not just for glazing artwork or covering countertops. Discover a whole new crafting world with resin!

A liquid craft material sold in 2 parts. Mix the two parts together for a few minutes in most cases (depends on brand of resin) to start a curing/hardening process. Usually this will be complete in 24 hours.

Perfect for imitating water in dioramas/environments, glazing projects and artwork, making resin artwork similar to a paint pour, making keychains, making jewelry, making home decor pieces, coasters, wall hangings, jewelry boxes, and much much more!

Here are just some resin projects featured in past Craft Kitsune boxes:

Faux Stained Glass

Miniature Cauldron Trinket Boxes

"Sakura Snowflake" Ornaments

New Hobby: UV Resin

To make quicker resin pieces. Instead of 2-part resin, this resin types cures in just minutes under UV light (yes, it will also cure under the UV light from the sun!)

It comes in just one bottle/part. No mixing parts together. Also sold in colored versions or you can mix you own color using the same techniques for making colored 2-Part resin.

It is also perfect for strengthening clay pieces & adding shine.

However, this resin type is more expensive than 2-part resin and has a few more limitations. For one, you can only use clear molds (opaque molds do not let the UV light pass through). It's also best to work in thin layers as it will not cure well otherwise. UV Resin is best suited for smaller scale projects such as jewelry.

Example UV Resin projects featured in past Craft Kitsune boxes:

Decorated Phone Grips

"Fish" Ponds

Hair Clips

New Hobby: Modeling Clay

A versatile medium with endless possibilities! No pottery wheel required (although that is another fun, creative idea).

Select air dry clay, polymer clay (oven baked), or apoxie clay. Sculpt to your hearts content. Add finishing touches like paint, pearl powders, chalk pastels for shading, metal embellishments, and more.

Make charms, jewelry, figurines, home decor pieces, etc.

Example clay pieces made from past Craft Kitsune boxes:

Polymer Clay Charms

Air Dry Clay Fake Sweets

Polymer Clay Maneki Neko Figurines

New Hobby: DIY Home Decor

Decorate your home with your own crafts! As we spent & are spending much more time indoors in 2020 and through 2021, make your house a home. Add your personal flair. Select a project based on a specific home decor theme (examples: farmhouse, nautical, cottagecore) or based on a need (examples: spice rack holder, headboard, hallway decorations, wall collage).
