instructions

  1. Mix resin according to instructions on packaging.
  2. Split resin evenly into 3 cups.
  3. In one cup of resin, mix in a small scoop of pink pearl pigment. In the second cup, mix in 2 drops of aqua Mod Podge Alcohol Ink. The third cup of resin will stay clear.
  4. On a protected work surface, place the canvas so it is balanced on 3-4 upturned cups. This will allow for excess resin to drip off of the canvas so it doesn’t pool around it. Note: cups and work surface will get resin on them, so make sure they are disposable.
  5. Begin slowly pouring a small amount of each resin mixture onto the canvas. They can be poured in striped patterns, or swirls. Continue adding more resin, alternating colors until the desired look is achieved.
  6. Sprinkle gold flakes onto the canvas between coats of resin.
  7. Gently lift the canvas (wearing gloves) and swirl it to softly blend the colors together.
  8. Allow to harden for 24 hours.
  9. When the resin is cured, if resin dripped onto any areas that you did not want, gently sand it away with sandpaper.
