Resin Coffee Bean Tray

When I was shopping for new items to use in my crafting I came upon a 2 pack of serving trays for $5 and could not pass them they would be perfect to use for a project with EnviroTex Lite...

I choose to try something a bit different and make a Coffee Bean Serving Tray...I love how it turned out!

Here's how I made it:

EnviroTex Lite
Wooden Serving Tray
FolkArt Paint, Licorice, Country Twill
Coffee Beans

Tools: Cups, Stir Stick, Paint Brush, Sandpaper, Heat Gun

Paint inside and out side of tray with Country Twill, let dry
Paint entire tray, except inside bottom with Licorice, let dry.
Sand away areas of the tray to let the Country Twill show through and to give a distressed look.

Measure equal amounts of resin and hardener, mix together for two minutes.
Pour mixture into new cup and mix for one minute.

Pour a thin layer of resin into the bottom of the tray, let set up for about 10 minutes

Then add coffee beans in the bottom of the tray.  Use heat gun to remove any air bubbles, let dry 6 hours.

Mix some more resin, then apply over coffee beans.  Use heat gun to remove any air bubbles, 
let dry 12 hours.  Repeat.

The tray turned out beautiful...
