Use High-Viscosity Resin

The viscosity of your resin plays a crucial role in preventing glitter from sinking. High-viscosity resin is thicker and takes longer to cure, giving the glitter more time to suspend before the resin hardens. This type of resin creates a gel-like consistency, which helps to hold the glitter in place. So, when choosing your resin, opt for a high-viscosity type to give your glitter the best chance of staying put.

Layered Pouring

Another effective method to prevent glitter from sinking is layered pouring. This technique involves pouring a thin layer of resin, sprinkling the glitter, and allowing it to cure before adding the next layer. This method not only prevents the glitter from sinking but also creates a beautiful depth effect in your resin projects. Remember to wait until each layer is tacky but not completely hardened before adding the next one.

Add Glitter After a While

Timing is everything when it comes to adding glitter to your resin. If you add it too soon, it will sink to the bottom; if you add it too late, it will stay on the surface. The trick is to wait until the resin has started to thicken but is not yet hard. This usually happens about 10-20 minutes after mixing the resin, but it can vary depending on the type of resin and the room temperature. Experiment with your specific resin to find the perfect timing.

Choose the Correct Glitter Type

Not all glitters are created equal. Some are heavier than others and will sink faster in the resin. For epoxy resin projects, it's best to use fine glitter as it's lighter and less likely to sink. However, if you prefer chunkier glitter, you can still use it, but you'll need to be more careful with your timing and possibly use the layered pouring technique.
