Turn that boring wooden tray into something amazing! Counter Culture DIY Artist Resin makes your wooden tray a work of art with its beautiful colors and glass-like finish!

Doing this project is so easy!

Here are the steps:

  1.     Measure an equal amount of resin and hardener. Try to pour them slowly into your mixing cup to prevent bubbles. Or, use a stirring stick to guide them as you pour on the cup.
  2.     Mix for 2-3 minutes, until the resin becomes clear.
  3.     Divide the resin into smaller portions, depending on how many colors you want to use.
  4.     Drop your favorite dispersion color on each cup, then blend well using stirring stick. You can add more color depending on how bright or opaque you want it to be.
  5.     Start to pour the colored resins one by one. Make sure that one resin is level before pouring another one. Use a spatula to guide the resin where it should go.
  6.     Continue pouring resin to create the pattern that you like. At this stage, you need to use your imagination to produce a great design.
  7.     Use heat gun to pop up the bubbles and create some cool effects!
  8.     Let the resin cure. To prevent hair or any impurities to settle into the resin, use a cardboard box to cover your project.
  9.     Add another layer of clear resin on top of the cured resin. This step will ensure that your project will have a glass-like finish. Use heat gun to pop any bubbles.
  10. Let the topcoat cure. When it does, you now have a pretty wooden tray!
