Resin art has become a hugely popular craft in recent times. From miniature trinkets to keepsakes, even wedding favours and event table centrepieces, resin is versatile and a great DIY hobby for all to enjoy.
Many crafters have created successful businesses selling epoxy resin art, and some are just beginning to branch out into the world of selling crafts.
No matter what you make, if you intend to sell your goods, you’ll need a great insurance policy in place to protect your business.
What is resin art?
Resin art is a popular craft that uses epoxy resin, a liquid plastic, combined with different colour pigments, additives and decor to create unique works of art.
The resin is typically set in an epoxy mold using a hardening component and then de-molded to reveal different patterns and textures.
We’ve seen many of our crafters make beautiful works of resin art, including:
- – Resin coasters and keyrings
- – Preserving flowers in resin
- – Resin beach and wave scenes
- – Resin jewellery
- – Crystal and geode pattern resin

What insurance do I need to sell resin art?
It’s a good idea to have both public and product liability insurance in place when you start your resin business.
They are both crucial in ensuring that you, your business and goods are protected in all areas.
Public Liability Insurance
Public Liability Insurance will provide cover for both you and your business against compensation costs. These costs could be due to damage or injuries occurring because of or towards a member of the public as a result of your business’s products or activities.
You’ll be covered for injuries, death or disablement to the public and for loss of or damage to third party property.
Product Liability Insurance
Product Liability Insurance will provide cover for your handmade goods in production, supply and sale.
If a customer experiences an issue as a direct result of your products, such as harm, you risk being held liable for paying legal fees if they pursue a claim. Our cover takes that worry away – you won’t have to deal with any extensive legal costs if an incident does occur.
When should I get insurance for my resin art business?
It is important that you get your business insurance set up straight away. If you are planning on selling to the public soon, or already are, you’re at risk. Having insurance in place gives you peace of mind knowing that you’re protected against loss, damages and injury.
