instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Basecoat the cutting board with Steel Gray.  Allow to dry.
  2. Mix Wicker White, Licorice and gold glitter into resin in individual cups.
  3. Pour the white and the black resin into the recessed area in cutting board and move it around to form a marbled look.  Add gold glitter as shown in photo.  Use the torch to remove any bubbles.  Wait 24 hours for resin to dry.
  4. Brush the gilding adhesive along the edge of the resin but on the wood.
  5. Allow the adhesive to dry.  It will remain very sticky.  Press the gilding sheet into the adhesive and allow the gold to peel off the sheet.  Continue until the adhesive is covered with gold.
  6. Tape the bottom of the cutting board to protect it from any runover.
  7. Mix clear resin and pour over entire cutting board.  Allow to dry for 24 hours.  Use the torch to remove any bubbles.  Once dry remove the tape from the back.
