Resin Penny Tray

In September I shared a Resin Coffee Bean Tray that I created with EnviroTex Lite...I loved the concept of that tray so much that I am making more resin trays.  With the holidays coming up, I think these would make perfect gifts!

Today I am sharing with you a Resin Penny Tray.  This would make a great gift for a coin collector, don't you think?

Here's how I made it:

EnviroTex Lite
Wooden Serving Tray
Americana Satin, black tie
Brand new pennies

Tools: Cups, Stir Stick, Paint Brush, Sandpaper, butane lighter

Paint the entire tray inside and out and letting it dry.
 Measure equal amounts of resin and hardener, mix together for two minutes.
Pour mixture into new cup and mix for one minute.

Fill the bottom of the tray with the pennies,  I did not mind some showing heads and some tails:0)
Then pour the EnviroTex Lite over the pennies.
Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that rise up, I did this every 15 minutes for an hour.

Mix some more EnviroTex Lite.

 Pour into the tray.  Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles, 
let dry 12 - 24  hours. 

The tray turned out perfect...
