instructions

  1. Basecoat the tree with Treasure Gold. Allow to dry.
  2. Brush Gold Glitterific over the Treasure Gold. Allow to dry.
  3. Tape off the bottom of tree so that the resin will not run over and stick to the bottom of the tree.
  4. Place the tree on something like a cup wide enough so that the tree will not fall over. This will keep the tree from sticking to the workspace.
  5. Before beginning follow the video on how to mix resin. https://youtu.be/m21RbxN-69A
  6. Now that the resin is mixed, pour the resin onto the tree in small sections and use your gloved hand to move the resin over the tree. Continue this until the tree is completely covered. Go over the tree the with the torch to remove any bubbles. After resin has dried for 24 hours add another coat.
  7. Remove tape from the bottom of tree.
