Coating Thermos with Epoxy Resin

Equipment for coating thermos

  1. Thermos (you can choose the size you want)
  2. Resin color/ alcohol paint/ marble effect spray (as you like)
  3. Sand/ glitter for decoration (as you like)
  4. Barbeque grill
  5. A long stick or an iron rod
  6. Plastic glass (should be the same size as the thermos)
  7. Sandpaper
  8. PET tape
  9. Epoxy resin (from Easy Resin)

Let’s start with the ocean pattern!

1. Put a steel rod or a long stick on the barbeque grill.

Then put a prepared plastic glass on the other side of the rod, put the thermos over the plastic glass, and use PET tape to block the edge of the thermos to prevent it from resin.

2. Scrub the glossy surface of the thermos with sandpaper. This helps epoxy resin adhere to the thermos surface better.

Mix resin at the needed proportion and divide it into the plastic glass or container as the amount of the desired color. Today, we have a clear sky, clear blue, solid blue, and solid white. (If you want glitter, it can be added at this step.)

After that, you can start pouring resin in the pattern that you like.


3. When the resin is poured all over the thermos, let it rest for about 5 minutes for the resin to set into a gel-like form. After that, you can get rid of the air bubbles by using the blowtorch.

Wait for 1 – 2 hours, then remove the PET tape attached to the edge of the thermos (it must be removed while the resin is still sticky because once it is completely dry, it cannot be removed).

4. Leave it for 15 – 24 hours until it is completely dry, and it is now ready to use.

Now let’s do the thermos with an alcohol ink pattern.

1. Use PET tape to block the edge of the thermos to prevent it from resin. After that, scrub the surface of the thermos with sandpaper, then spray the prepared paint (matte black).

Then wait for it to dry for 1 – 2 hours. Once it is dry, put the thermos on the prepared rotating device (barbeque machine), and pour the resin while letting the machine rotate to coat the thermos.

2. Drop the alcohol ink as desired.

Once the resin gets sticky, you can use a blowtorch to remove air bubbles and leave it for 1 – 2 hours, and remove the PET tape that was pasted.

3. Let it harden for 15 – 24 hours until the resin is completely dry.

Easy Tips:

You should let the machine rotate constantly until the resin is dry, because stopping the machine can cause the resin to drip into clumps.

Next, we are going to create a gold glitter pattern thermos.

1. Use the PET tape to block the edge of the thermos and put it into the rotating device. After that, spread the latex glue all over and pour the golden glitter on the latex glue, and start pouring resin while letting the machine spin to coat the thermos completely.

2. Leave the resin until it gets sticky for about 5 minutes, then use a blowtorch to remove the air bubbles. After leaving it for 1 – 2 hours, gently pull off the PET.

3. Leave it for 15 – 24 hours until resin is completely dry.

Let’s create a marble effect thermos!

1. Use PET tape to block the edge of the thermos to prevent it from resin. After that, scrub the surface with sandpaper. Then use marble effect spray (silver) to spray all over the thermos.

2. Mix the pearl glitter into the prepared resin and stir until it is well combined, then pour it over the thermos completely.

3. Leave the resin sticky for about 5 minutes, then use a blowtorch to remove air bubbles. After 1 – 2 hours, gently pull off the PET tape.

4. Leave it for 15 – 24 hours until resin is completely dry.

Last one! Let’s make a galaxy-patterned thermos.

1. Use PET tape to block the edge of the thermos and mix metallic color with glitter as you want. Today, we use purple, red, and blue pigment.

2. Put the thermos into the prepared rotating device and pour each color of resin on the thermos.

3. Leave the resin to get sticky for about 5 minutes, then use the blowtorch to remove the air bubbles. After 1 – 2 hours, gently pull off the PET.

4. Leave it for 15 – 24 hours until the resin is completely dry.
