I wanted to make a fun decor piece for my niece's room. Her room is decorated with fish and octopus and I thought this piece would fit right in.
- EnviroTex Lite®
- Liquid Art Panel
- Deco Art Media Fluid Acrylics
- Mixing cups
- Stir stick
- Paint brushes
- Glass Glitter
- White Glue that dries clear-I used Crafter's Pick-The Ultimate
First I sketched out the placement of the fish and plants.
Blending the paint and filling the fish in.
Done and ready to add Glitter Glass. Using a thin line of glue onto the areas you would like to cover with Glitter Glass. Pour Glitter Glass over the glue lines and press down softly. Remove extra and pour back into bottle.

I gathered all my supplies to mix the EnviroTex Lite®
Mix together equal amounts of the EnviroTex Lite® hardener and resin into a cup and stir for 2 minutes.
Pour into a second cup and stir for another minute. Pour the resin into the frame.
Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that may rise to the surface. I also used a straw to blow some out.
All dry and ready to enjoy!
I am so thrilled how this turned out! I wish you could see the 3-D effect it has. The Glitter Glass looks fabulous under the resin, they did not lose the shine!
Lesson learned...White Glitter Glass does not show up.
