If you’re looking to get your hands on a beautiful tumbler, then look no further than epoxy resin! It’s easy to use and will give your drink the perfect look. But what if you want to put some vinyl stickers on it?
Can you do that? And how do you make sure that they won’t lift off once the epoxy is dry? We’ve got all the answers here!
Can you put vinyl stickers in resin?
Yes, you can put vinyl stickers in resin! Vinyl stickers are some of the most popular types of decals that people use to customize their vehicles. They come in all sorts of cool colors, sizes, and shapes so you’re sure to find something that fits your style.
You should be careful though when putting them on because bubbles or wrinkles could ruin the look. You need to make sure that every part of your sticker is pressed down into the resin before it sets because once it does set, there’s nothing else we can do about it except maybe file off some edges.
You can put vinyl stickers on either outside or inside of your resin pieces but if there’s any chance that someone might see these from outside then we recommend putting them on an inside layer only (unless you like the idea of someone peeking through). It also depends on how much space is available since they make big ones too!

Can you put vinyl on epoxy?
Yes, you can put vinyl on epoxy. However, it’s not recommended because the resin is not a good base for vinyl and vice versa.
Resin is a good base for vinyl because the two materials are very similar in composition and they share some of their properties. If you want to keep your boat’s surfaces clean and preserve them from aging, this could be an option worth considering.
However, if you’re looking for something that’s more traditional or natural-looking (i.e., wood), then this might not be the best option for you—it may clash with other decor elements in your home or workplace space!
Can you put stickers inside resin?
The answer is yes! You can use a clear coat, epoxy, polyurethane varnish, or acrylic paint. The key is to use a clear finish. If your finish isn’t clear it will block the colors from the sticker from showing through.
How do I keep my vinyl from lifting under epoxy?
To ensure that your vinyl won’t lift away from the epoxy, you’ll have to prime it before applying it. There are a few different ways to do this—and some may work better than others depending on what kind of vinyl you use.
If you’re using an adhesive-backed decal, applying the backing tape first will help hold it in place for application and keep it from peeling up once dry.
If your vinyl is not pre-bonded, however, there are other options for priming. Products like Mod Podge (or similar mediums) can be used as a primer—you just need to make sure that whatever medium you choose doesn’t contain any solvents or fumes that might harm your finished product or cause bubbles curing in high heat!
How do you seal vinyl with epoxy?
- You can seal vinyl with epoxy using the same method of applying a coat of resin and then brushing it on the vinyl.
- Let the resin cure for at least 24 hours before applying another coat.
Can I epoxy over Cricut vinyl?
As the name implies, fabric-backed vinyl is a vinyl that’s applied to fabric. It’s used in sewing and quilting projects as well as wall decals, so it’s pretty durable stuff. And yes! You can epoxy over Cricut vinyl (or any other kind of adhesive-backed vinyl).
The main difference between using fabric-backed vs. “regular” adhesive-backed vinyl is how you apply it to your project.
When applying regular adhesive-backed vinyl, you’ll want to stick the whole sheet down at once and then cut around what you need.
With this type of material, you don’t want to take off too much since it doesn’t stretch like regular paper does—if there are mistakes or misalignment in your design after cutting out pieces from a whole sheet but before sticking them down on their surface(s), then there isn’t anything else left on that piece except for what’s already been applied; no more room for error!
This means working carefully when choosing where each piece goes before pressing firmly into place with even pressure across its entire surface area (so make sure none of those little pieces fall off into nowhere land).
Fabric-backed vinyl can be applied just like regular adhesive-backed (except instead of removing an entire sheet at once first) – simply peel off small sections individually until all parts have been removed from their backing sheet ready for use like any other type of film-based product such as stencils, etc…
This method allows us more control over placement during application which reduces waste by allowing us better accuracy when placing items onto surfaces while decreasing the chances they will slip around while being pressed into place due to only needing one hand free during installation instead of needing both hands free during installation with standard paper-based materials.”
How Do You Put A Catchy Logo On Resin?
- Heat transfer machines: These are relatively expensive and can be difficult to find. They use heat to fuse the ink onto the surface of a piece.
- Hair dryer: Hold your vinyl on top of the resin, then blow hot air from your hair dryer on it until it melts into place. This can take some practice before you get it right, but if you’re willing to experiment with different materials and temperatures, this method can yield impressive results!
- Heat lamp: You’ll need access to one at school or work (or maybe someone will let you borrow theirs). If so, try taking your piece outside under a bright sunbeam in the summertime; that should give enough warmth for the vinyl image to adhere properly to whatever surface you’re working with! Or just hold up each side separately against something hot like firewood or coffee grounds—the heat from those sources should do just fine!
How do you apply vinyl to epoxy tumblers?
How to apply vinyl to epoxy tumblers
- Step 1: Prepare the tumbler for application by cleaning any residue from previous projects. Use a scrub pad or paper towel to wipe down the surface, then rinse with water and dry. Repeat until you’ve removed all traces of dirt and sanding dust.
- Step 2: Attach your adhesive transfer tape in the desired position on your tumbler with double-sided tape at each end (if necessary). Use a ruler or straight edge as a guide when placing your tape if you want straight lines; otherwise, simply place it where it looks best!
