instructions

See How to Make This Project!

  1. Using painter’s tape, tape around the edge of the wood cookie so that the tape extends at least 1/2” above the surface of the wood- this will create a “wall” for the resin. Run your finger all around the sides of the wood slice to make sure the tape is as flush to the sides of the wood slice as possible.
  2. Mix resin according to instructions on packaging. 
  3. Pour 1/4 of the resin into a separate cup. In that cup, mix in 1 tablespoon of gold glitter.
  4. In the the cup with the larger amount of resin, mix in 2 drops of black Mod Podge Alcohol Ink.
  5. Poor a thin layer of black resin inside of the tape on the wood slice(s). Start pouring around the edges and continue inward.
  6. Sprinkle some iridescent glitter in the center of the wood slice(s).
  7. Using the gold glitter resin, pour a ring of resin around the iridescent glitter in the center. Continue adding black resin, gold glitter resin and loose iridescent glitter to the wood slice (in a circle motion) until you achieve the desired look. See project photo for reference.
  8. Allow the resin to cure.
  9. When the resin is cured, remove the tape from the wood slice. Using sand paper, remove any inconsistencies (where the tape may have folded, or of the resin overflowed in spots, etc.).
  10. Using a flat brush, paint Treasure Gold around the edges of the wood slice/resin. This will cause the 2 different materials to look like one and create a “geode” effect. Let dry.
