I was thrilled to try the Spin It by We R Memory Keepers! I have seen them on Instagram and they look so cool and fun and people get super creative with their Tumblers! I am working with the Spin It, the We R Memory Keepers Epoxy, Gold Glitter and Hot Pink Glitter!
I was a little concerned that I would make a huge mess and that it would be complicated. We R has some great video tutorials and I watched those to get an idea on how to approach the project. I can tell you that it was way easier than I thought it would be and with some foil baking trays, I contained any mess quite easily! For preparation I had two, low sided foil baking trays with a piece of printer paper in each one, for each color of glitter. I made myself a work surface with a big piece of cardboard and newspaper to catch any epoxy drips.
I washed my cup and applied an even coat of mod podge glue and sprinkled glitter. I decided to go with a two tone look and added gold glitter to the top and hot pink to the bottom. When the glitter had dried, I went a little extra and added rhinestones where the two glitters met.
Next up was the epoxy and spinning! I mixed the epoxy as per the instructions and had my Spin It on low, I poured the epoxy on and then used the Spin It to start and stop the turning while I smoothed the epoxy over the cup with my gloved hand. It really was very simple to add the epoxy!
My cup was on the Spin It for about 4 hours, turning at a slow-medium pace. In the We R video it had recommened to puddle a bit of epoxy on a paper to be able to see how it was drying so you didn’t have to fuss with touching your cup. Once the first coat was dry, I lightly sanded any bumpy bits and gave it a second coat.
The cup turned out amazing and it was super fun to make! These go cups or tumblers would make great gifts! Be sure to check out the Spin It and co-ordinating products online or at Micheals!
