Envirotex Lite As A Glaze - Wood Shapes and Paint Markers

Today I have a cross post showing you what you can do with paint markers, wood shapes and Envirotex Lite resin.  These house shapes come from a new Wood Kit Claudine Hellmuth is debuting on HSN in the United States next week.
 I decided to colour my wood shapes with some paint markers.
 Then I applied a coating of Envirotex Lite resin as a glaze.
Envirotex Lite is the best resin to work with for this technique because it was designed to give you the look you would have achieved with 50 coats of varnish...by only brushing it on the surface once.
 Aren't they adorable?  The resin makes them amazingly strong but they are still so light weight!
 These technique could be used on any wood or chip board shapes you want to make stronger.  Note also that resin on paint makes the colours pop.

  1. What kind of brush do you use for the envirotex that doesn't have hairs falling out and sticking to the surface? Can you clean them and reuse them?

  2. My brushes are no-name from the Dollar store. I do not try to wash them out, so they are one time use only. I have not had "hair" issues....probably because I work so quick and do not really press the hairs very much. In a pinch I have moved resin on a flat surface with just a toothpick.

  3. I love this! At Christmas I painted a wooden reindeer and made a necklace for my niece. I am thinking I will go back and glaze it to make it really pop!
