It’s a great question to ask. You can use stickers in resin, but the process will vary depending on whether you’re using regular epoxy or clear epoxy. Here’s what you need to know about putting stickers in resin:
Can you put stickers in epoxy resin?
Yes, you can definitely put stickers in epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is useful for sealing stickers to a surface or another sticker.
- Create a surface that you want to affix a sticker to. For example, if you wanted to use your sticker as a label on an object, such as the inside of a plastic container (see image below), then create that surface by sticking down some cardboard or paper onto your container using PVA glue (the kind used for scrapbooking).
- Stick your sticker down onto the surface using PVA glue and wait for it to dry completely before applying epoxy over top of it. This will ensure that your sticker doesn’t move around while drying and also helps keep its shape once dry

Can you put paper stickers in resin?
Yes. You can put paper stickers in resin.
Paper stickers are made of paper, which is made of wood pulp, which absorbs water. When you put a sticker into resin, it will dissolve into the liquid plastic and then attach itself to the surface of your project.
This can be useful if you want to add things like glitter or confetti to your piece—or if you’re trying to create an underwater scene with fish or sea weed!
But what about metal or foil? Can those be used for decals too?
Can you put stickers inside resin?
Yes, you can put stickers inside resin.
This is a common question that we get asked on a daily basis. The answer is simple: yes, you can put stickers inside resin! You can even add multiple layers of stickers to your resin piece if you’d like to create something really unique and meaningful.
We prefer using double-sided tape to secure the sticker in place before adding it to our resin pieces as an extra layer of protection against peeling or warping over time.
Can I use vinyl stickers in resin?
You can use vinyl stickers in resin. The only difference is the method of application. If you want to make your own stickers, you can use your vinyl printer to make them and then apply them directly onto the surface of your resin piece.
However, if you don’t have a vinyl printer or don’t want to set one up, then it may be easier for you just to buy pre-made stickers from an online store such as Vinylicious or Sticker Mule.
How do you seal sticker paper before epoxy?
You can seal sticker paper before epoxy in a few ways:
- Use a spray sealant. This will help keep your stickers from peeling off when the resin is applied. Some people swear by using Krylon Crystal Clear Coat, but it’s really up to you!
- Use wax sealant, like Minwax Paste Finishing Wax or Rustoleum Wood Stain & Sealer with UV Protectant. This method works well if you want to give your project an aged look, especially if the sticker paper already has some wear and tear to it!
- Apply clear coat after putting all of your stickers down and letting them sit for 24 hours (or longer depending on how thick they are). The longer they rest against each other before being sealed with resin, the better it will adhere together when everything is dried up later on down the road!
How do you waterproof stickers?
You can waterproof stickers using a few different methods. The most common method is to use a waterproof sealer, which can be found in most art supply stores, but you can also opt for a waterproof pen or marker if your sticker design is simple enough.
If you have more intricate designs, use a waterproof pencil or crayon instead of the aforementioned products. If your sticker design still needs some work, try using waterproof spray paint instead of the other options listed above.
If none of these options are available to you in your area (or if they’re simply not working), try applying one coat of varnish before placing the stickers on top.
Once dry, seal them with another layer of varnish at least 24 hours later for maximum protection against water damage!
Can you put a picture in resin?
You can put a picture in resin. The process is pretty simple: you take a photo and then transfer it onto resin. You’ll have to use special kinds of resin called photo resins for this job, but that’s easy enough to find online if you know what keywords to search for (or just ask Google).
Once your image is transferred on top of the photo resin, all you need to do is pour it into an empty container and wait for it to dry!
Can you put puffy stickers in resin?
Puffy stickers are not recommended for use with resin casting. Since they are made of flexible plastic, they might come off the surface of your piece when you remove the mold.
If that happens, you may lose some or all of your sticker image when you cast it.
These are just a few of the many questions that people have when it comes to putting stickers in resin. We hope this article has helped answer some of your questions and given you some insight into how you can create beautiful art pieces with your adhesive materials.
