Here is the video tutorial:





Directions:

1.  Draw a shark on poster board and cut it out.  Then trace it onto a piece of MDF.



2.  Cut it out with a jigsaw.



3.  Sand the edges.



4.  Spray paint it silver or gray.





5.  Paint on the details - 




Like the belly...




The mouth...



The gills...



6.  Glue on the eye.  I made the eye out of a glass gem and painted the back of the eye black, with multi-surface paint.




7.  Mix resin and I added a little tint of pigment powder and transparent blue pigment.




8.  Pour it onto the shark and move it around.




9.  Use a torch to pop the bubbles.



10.  Allow it to cure for 12 hours before handling it.



11.  Now you have a colossal shark to for your decor inside, or out!  If you put it outside, be sure to seal the backside too!



That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
