Making glitter and UV pens is such a fun project. You can choose whatever color you like. All kinds of glitter can work, the finer the glitter the smoother the results. Using You-V resin makes the curing time quick as well as safe to touch.
How fun would it be to make these to coordinate with a special journal or project? They would also make a fun back-to-school project to do with the kids. While I only used glitter, you could include small stickers, cut vinyl, or images as well.

After applying the glitter, you want to make sure the glue is completely dry before applying resin. I used Blue UV Jewelry Gel resin to coordinate with the color of my glitter. It is safe to use. Jewelry Gels are SGS certified with solvent-free composition. Under regular handling, it has a low risk of skin irritation.
The pen in the tutorial is made with chunky glitter, I also made a pen using fine glitter to show the difference.
