Usually when I have a just a bit of left over resin from a project I pour it into molds I have next to my work station. The other day I thought I would try to something a bit different...
I bought this butterfly sun catcher at the craft store and knew it would be perfect to try some stain glass with resin.
If you are not using a bit of left over EasyCast® from a project, mix 1/2 - 1 ounce according to manufacturer's instructions
Divide resin into several mixing cups. Add a drop or two of dye (colors of choice) into each cup.
Use a toothpick to apply each color to the sun catcher. TIP: If you spill any of the colored resin into an area that you do not want it in, simply use a baby wipe to remove it.
Remove any air bubbles that rise to the top with a lighter. Let dry overnight.
Add a string and place in the window to enjoy!
This was a perfect project to use up just a bit of left over resin from a bigger project. I will be looking for some larger sun catchers the next time I am in the craft store.
