Technique Thursday

Pouring Resin.

Kathy and I attended a class in pouring resin. It gives a high gloss finish to a surface. We used a low odour resin that you mix in equal parts. First we glued the paper to the wooden shape and sanded off any excess edges. we sealed the paper with two coats of diluted PVA glue. The resin was then poured into the centre and pushed out to the edges with a spatula. The air bubbles were dispersed with the use of a BBQ lighter
The class was amazing and a great deal of fun.
