I've been wanted to experiment with resin and layers for a while now.  This is truly an experiment.  I mixed in different pigment powders, thick and fine glitters and India inks into the resin.  The pictures do not do it justice.  I has a great amount of depth and color to it!

Here are some of the items I used:
-  Resin - I used Envirotex Lite, but Easy Cast would work just as well.
-  Glitter - both fine and chunky
-  Iridescent confetti flakes 
-  Sander and sandpaper - I used grits ranging from 60 to 220.  (Start with the rougher grit and end with the fine grit).

Here is the video tutorial:

I don't have formal directions on this one.  I did three or four  layers before I sanded it.  I did let it cure at least 12 hours before I sanded it.  The layers will give you depth.  There is no right or wrong on how to do this.  Just experiment and try things!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting and stay safe!
