Red, White and Blue Layered Glittered Paper Weight

Memorial Day is right around the corner so I thought a Red, White and Blue Paper Weight would be perfect to hold the napkins down for our family picnic. 


I love how this turned out!! 
Materials Required:

Project Instructions: 

Please note:  The mold holds slightly less than 3 ounces total so each layer will take just under 1 ounce each.  

Measure out equal amounts of  the EasyCast® Resin and Hardener and mix together for 2 minutes, then poured them into a new cup and mix for another minute.

Spray the inside of the mold with Mold Release.

 Pour the mixed resin into the mold, about 1/3 full.

Mix in red glitter...until thoroughly blended.

Use a lighter to remove and air bubbles that rise to the top.  Let cure for 12 hours.

Mix another batch of EasyCast® as directed above,.  Mix in a bit of iridescent glitter,  Pour into the mold on top of the first layer.  Use a lighter to remove and air bubbles that rise to the top.  Let cure for 12 hours.  Repeat with the blue glitter for the last layer.  Use a lighter to remove and air bubbles that rise to the top.  Let cure for 12 hours.  Pop out of the mold.

Here is the finished paper weight...ready to use Memorial Day!
