Hi Resin fans, Karen Bearse here with a quick colorful chippie star sun catcher tutorial. I did a test the other day that was hugely successful & I wanted to share it. I don't know about you but I love playing with chipboard and wood pieces, adding them to art journal, scrapbook pages, etc. Some pieces and die cuts have nice open spaces which would look great filled in with resin. This could be used for decoration or in your art project.
I decided to alter a chipboard star. Here is what my finished project looks like.
First mix the resin. Pour equal measures of EnviroTex Lite resin & hardener into a cup and stir for 2 minutes. Pour this mix into a new cup and with a new stick stir for 1 minutes.
This is what I ended up with. So first off it worked yay! The craft sheet does leave a bit of texture imprinted in the resin, so the next time, to prevent this, I would start with the wood piece on parchment paper. I would also add some glitter or mica to add a little fun! There was some drippage on the edges which I cut off. Once the edges were cleaned up I used an awl to carefully punch a hole for a brad. I wrapped a bit of wire around the star and attached a charm with a jump ring.
Bonus: I also did a piece using a scrap of paper cut with a film strip die. Using clear resin, I dripped some onto my die cut the same way. Only this time, I left one of the holes open, without resin. I left the drippage on the edges. The result is a very cool piece that can be used on an art journal page or a scrapbook page. Thanks for playing along today!
