Welcome to #Resin8Congratulations on finding us! You can now experience that ‘kid in a sweet shop’ feeling again and again when you buy from Resin8. With everything that you could possibly want for your #resin art and craft projects, you have now entered the wonderful world of #Resin8. We’re your go-to supplier of crystal clear epoxy resin, colour pigments, mica powders, silicone moulds, tools and accessories.
If you’ve ever stumbled your way, slightly confused, through other resin craft supplies websites, then you’ll wonder how you’ve ever done without us. We can confidently state that you can always find what you’re looking for, from bezels to resins and from sparkles to findings. And if for some reason you’re that one in a thousand who wants that totally quirky, way-out colour pigment, bezel or mica powder, then we’ll do our very best to help you achieve your dream…
Super reliable, super friendly and really ethically-minded, we’re a one-stop (online) shop with a difference. Yes, we’re based in the Cotswolds but we ship worldwide - Alaska, Ukraine, Malta, the list goes on…
We share, we surprise, we absolutely LOVE everything about resin. We’re part of a rapidly growing resin craft community (and yes, we're one of the originals, having been in business for well over 20 years and having a whopping combined 50 years experience in working with resin) so do follow us on Insta, Facebook and Youtube for daily updates on all things wonderfully resin-y - you’ll discover tips, tricks, help and support about anything you can think of to make with resin.
Whatever your level of skill - hesitant beginner, increasingly confident resin dabbler or full-on professional - you may also want a little support in your resin journey so why not attend a class with us in the Cotswolds? From resin art and dirty pours to making jewellery and casting resin gems, we can teach you the skills you need to work with epoxy resin.
It’s time to start getting excited about opening your next #Resin8 parcel…
Meet the Resin8 team!
Clare John (Founder) - CJ Resins (as it was then known) was founded by Clare John, a trained silversmith who has been making jewellery for over 40 years. Clare first used resin for jewellery making in the 1970s and has been teaching and demonstrating resin techniques since 2004. Now a grandmother, Clare spends her time enjoying her well-earned retirement.
Kate (Director) - Kate has been associated with the jewellery trade her entire career and is even married to a professional designer jeweller. She joined the Resin8 team in 2011 as resident website developer, stock manager, book-keeper and marketer. Kate oversees the ever-expanding warehouse and online store, along with staff, social media, marketing, stock management, purchasing and customer enquiries. If there's a product you'd like to see us stock, get in touch with Kate!
Ellie (Manager) - Ellie joined the team in November 2017 and is now in charge of the processing of orders. Ellie is loving her journey into the world of resin and is happily getting obsessed with products. She is currently fixated with our polymer clay snowflakes but knows that Emerald Lagoon Mica Powder with always have a place in her heart.
Amy (Warehouse Manager) - Amy joined us just before Black Friday 2018. If you buy something from us, Amy will probably have been involved in hand-picking and packing your order. Amy is our mica queen and is often seen with a tropical temptations or clementine pop nose. She also makes amazing biscuits cakes for the team. Amy is camera-shy (a bit like Kate) so won't often be seen on our social media feed.
Sarah - Chief labeller! Sarah takes lots of our mica powders and glitters home and stickers them up with batch numbers and labels. She loves making our mica selections up into bags (so she says) and works for us in the evenings when her tiddlywinks have gone to bed.
Little Lou - Lou looks after the re-potting of our opaque pigment, as well as having fun with Rejuven8 paste. Lou is a fan of true crime and on the days she is in the workshop we are all often found listening to gruesome murder stories.
Marnie - Marnie works for us when not studying for her degree in Psychology. She looks after some of our social media posts and, when she's here, she's in charge of packing glitter and making up kits. She loves a bit of sparkle and has a bit of a thing for Pink Reflections eco-glitter.
Fin - In his gap year following A-levels, Fin is our first male employee (ooohhh) and is pretty handy to have around. He packs your orders, bottles our popular resin, re-pots pigments and keeps us entertained with his Winchcombe tennis club adventures.
Teacher Lou - Founder of local business Willow Tree Art, Lou runs art classes in the Cotswolds. She has stepped into the amazing world of resin and now delivers all of our resin workshops. Obsessed with aurora dust, Lou is a dab hand at turning mica powder into watercolour paints and can often be found mulling late into the evening.
Sheena - Cake maker and parcel packer extraordinnaire, Sheena is the latest to join the Resin8 madhouse.
