A Forever Flower in a Vase with Resin

While at my sister's house last week, I was looking a vase she had with a single flower in it and thought it would be great display a vase with a single rose in it between our parents wedding photos.  I grabbed a silk rose and my resin to create this forever flower.

  • EasyCast┬«
  • Silk Rose
  • Bud vase
  • Mixing cups
  • Stir sticks
  • Lighter
  • Tape

Project Instructions: 

 Gather your supplies.

 Mix together equal amounts of the EasyCast┬« resin and hardener, stir for 2 minutes. 

Pour into a second mixing cup and stir for another minute.

 Pour resin into the vase.  Use a lighter if need to remove any air bubbles.  Please note, that a few bubbles are alright and make the end result look more natural.

 Place the rose in the vase and secure in place with tape.  Let dry for 8 - 12 hours,

 Here is a photo showing the resin dry and looking just like water...

The beauty of this project is that you never have to worry about the water tipping over or the rose dying.
