Vintage door knobs

I ordered some epoxy resin for a table that I was making, it was so much cheaper to buy a large bottle and now I have some left over to play around with. And making door knobs came to mind. I had ordered some gears and watch mechanisms for Wish and when they arrive they vintage door knobs a bit smaller than I thought they would be, but they were perfect for this. For my moulds I used silicone cup cake trays. I am hopeless at baking and cooking so it was nice to see them used after years in the cupboard. I arrange the gears in the moulds and for my second row I used unicorn Spit stain and glaze and some color pigment. My epoxy resin is 2:1 so I used 300ml in total which was double what I needed.

I had some long brass bolts with nuts on them which worked great. To hold my bolts in place I used chop sticks that I taped together with the bolts in between. It is a good idea to set that up before you start, which I did not do, so it was a mad dash to do it before the epoxy started to set. This is what my set up looked like in the end. The resin had lots of bubbles in it which is why it looks white.

Your resin should look like this after the bubbles are removed. I let them sit for 24 Hours and then just turned the moulds inside out to get the out. The back of mine had some fine rough edges. I used a sanding block with 320grit to remove them, the front came out perfect. The unicorn spit door knobs did not work as great as I wanted, because I did not mix it in enough with the resin. But was so impressed with the steampunk door knobs, I just need to make a piece of furniture to go with them.

Besides being door knobs these can have many uses. They would make great hooks for a coat rack, great for hanging up your necklaces and many more. The possibilities for these door knobs are endless as to what you can add to the resin. Really can’t cost this because the amount of resin was so small and all the other items I had. And only too 20 minutes to do excluding resin drying time. Any price and availability information displayed on at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.

Take the piece from the middle of the door knob and add it to the center to be able to connect the doorknob back on . The balls look all round but the way they are made they should have a flat bottom.

Hence, door pulls or drawer pulls. Wonderful result, what a great idea. I am new to epoxy and was wondering, can I use nail polish to color epoxy? You can but you have to watch the amount you use, just like any additives. If you use too much, it won’t set up. I’ve made keychains with fingernail polish as colorant. It will be a light version of what it looks like in the bottle.

I’ve also used cocoa powder, kool-aid, powdered cheese, chalk. Dry is better than wet but you can use acrylic paint, polish, etc. Horizontal Blinds to Headboard in One Day Nowadays they don’t seem to sell the type of headboard that I’m looking for.
