  1. Mix the two-part resin according the package directions.
  2. Line your work surface with wax paper.
  3. Apply dry adhesive to the center of the grip, then apply a small drop of resin on either side.
  4. Place picture on top of the grip.
  5. Carefully add the resin on top, go very lightly to the edge so it won’t spill over. It will spread as it cures.

  1. why would you need the sticky back photo paper if you are going to use adhesive and resin to stick it to the phone grip? Also, do you purchase you phone grips in bulk? If so where?

  2. Hi! Because it helps set it in place so it won’t slide as you apply the resin. I bought mine at the store! I couldn’t find any that fit my style, so I was inspired to makeover one that I bought! Really fun!
