Ombre Glitter Tumbler With The Spin It

Hello We R Memory Keepers fans! Soraya here today to share my first experience making a tumbler with the new Spin It turner and its accessories!

Ombre Glitter Tumbler with the Spin It by Soraya Maes for We R Memory Keepers

To make a tumbler you’ll need: the Spin It turner, spray glue, glitter, epoxy kit, gloves, popsicle sticks, wax paper to protect your surface and a cute vinyl design.

The Spin It tool plugs into a USB power source making it easier to use!

For this first experience, I used a spray glue but you can also use Modge Podge with a brush. Make sure to tape off the bottom and top of the cup before spraying the glue.

I wanted a fun blue ombré so I went for silver, soft blue and navy for the color combo. I started on top of the cup with the lightest one : silver. Then I put back the glitter into the bottle thanks to the glitter clean up tray. I continued with the soft blue and finally the navy. Just let the Spin It turn at the lowest speed to be sure to put glitter everywhere! Smooth the color transitions with your fingers.

When the glitter is set up and the glue is completely dry, prepare your epoxy resin with solution A and solution B. Don’t forget to wear gloves all along the epoxy process since it’s a chemical product. Also, be sure to read all the instructions before trying it! Keep your windows open unless you craft outside. A and B must have the same volume ratio before being mixed togerther.

Gently pour the expoxy on the tumbler then use your hand (with gloves!) to spread the resin all over it. Once you’re done with it, remove the tape then let the tumbler on the Spin It turner for about 4 hours. And here is the beautiful result!

Let’s add some fun with a vinyl design from the Spin It range. I chose to use the llama design.

The vinyl is on a transfer paper that you directly apply on the tumbler then take it off like a rubon.

Once the vinyl is perfectly in place, repeat the epoxy process and let the Spin It turn for about 4 hours. Take off the tape before letting the epoxy dry. The tumbler needs to dry 24 hours to be completely finished.

Video Tutorial: DIY Beach Themed Glitter Tumbler with the Spin It

Hello friends! It’s Aly here today with something I think might help get you through your Monday. I’ve been dreaming of heading to the beach for a sunny and relaxing vacay, so when I got my hands on the new Spin It tumbler turner that’s exactly where my creative brain went! I made a custom beach themed tumbler that I can fill with ice and my favorite cold drink, and since it’s insulated it will stay cold for hours.

DIY Beach Themed Glitter Tumbler featuring the Spin It tumbler turner by Aly Dosdall for We R Memory Keepers

I started out with a plain stainless steel tumbler that I picked up at Walmart, and looking at the colors of glitter on this tumbler now, I can just imagine lounging in the warm sand next to the gorgeous aqua water full of foamy waves under the clear blue sky. Are you with me?

Full disclosure: I am not a tumbler making expert. This is a totally new craft for me, but I can’t be any more excited than I am to be starting this fun creative journey! These custom beauties make excellent gifts for grandmas, moms, dads, grandpas, grads, bridesmaids, teachers and more. I’ve got crafty plans to make a ton of these this spring to give away!

There are so many ways to make glitter tumblers and tons of tutorials on YouTube so I did some research, watched several tutorials and planned out my project. I used Sticky Thumb Double Sided Red Craft Tape in two different widths to create the glitter stripes on my tumbler. That’s an easy way to get nice clean lines and to apply the glitter before coating the tumbler with epoxy.

I also used a clear spray sealer to seal the glitter before adding epoxy. That way the different colors of glitter don’t get spread around and mixed up while adding the coat of epoxy.

Here are a few tips I picked up as I did my research and completed this project:

  • Work with epoxy in a ventilated area. We R Memory Keepers epoxy doesn’t have strong fumes, but it still has a slight smell that you may not want in your craft room or house.
  • READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS FIRST! Epoxy has a limited working time so you want to be sure you know what you’re doing before you mix it up.
  • If you want your glitter colors to really pop and look vibrant, try spray painting the outside of your tumbler white before adding the glitter (which I didn’t do, so my colors are more muted).
  • Super Chunky glitter doesn’t work well with thin stripes–stick with large surface areas if you want to add super chunky glitter. Trust me–I know because I started with one color of super chunky glitter and had to remove and re-do some stripes.
  • For medium glitter, apply one coat of epoxy and allow to cure completely. Then sand with medium grain sandpaper, buff with fine sand paper, wash thoroughly by hand, and then apply a second coat of epoxy.

So, now that I’ve share some things I learned in my creative process, check out the video tutorial below. Please note: I did not take video of spraying the glitter sealer, or doing the sanding and final layer of epoxy since that part is pretty self explanatory and I already showed how to add the first layer of epoxy. I do mention them in the video so you know when those steps need to happen.
