Last year I made
a necklace that featured a butterfly I glazed with Envirotex Lite. I found another one on a recent trip to the dollar store and decided to make a second piece.
The butterfly is made with feathers and appears to be hand painted. I am so surprised that this only cost $1.
When I brushed on a glaze of Envirotex Lite resin the paint really popped. I let this side of the butterfly cure for 24 hours.
Then I painted on a glaze layer to the back side. This will make my butterfly much stronger and I neglected to do that the first time I made a resin butterfly.
When the backside was cured I applied a third glaze, just to the front side. My butterfly is very strong now!
This necklace is a showstopper!
