Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:




Directions

1. I found this polar bear cutout and thought it would be perfect for a resin art project!

2.  I used a black paint marker to distinguish the features.

3.  I used gray paint to give the back legs and back ear a shaded quality and to distinguish the stomach.


4.  Once dry, I painted the back white.

5.  Once dry, I painted the front white.  I went over everything.


6.  I painted the shaded areas and blackened the features again.


7.  Once dry, I painted it all white again.

8.  Then I blackened the features and painted the shaded areas again.

9.  I put painter's tape on the bottom edge of the back of the polar bear.  I burnished it down.

10.  I used my craft knife to trim off the excess tape.

This is what it looks like once trimmed.

11.  Here is a little tip:  I used Vaseline on the edge of the tape, so the resin drips on the bottom are easily removed once cured.

12.  I mixed six ounces of resin and mixed in fine and chunky white glitter.

13.  I poured the resin on the bear.

14.  I used my stir stick to help move the resin to the edge.  I made sure the edges also have resin on them.

15.  I used my torch to pop the bubbles.  I let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

16.  Once cured, I removed the painter's tape.

That's it!  Here is the close up with the sparkly resin!

The glitter over the darker areas still look great!  

This is perfect to lean on a shelf, or use the removable tabs that won't damage your wall!  Great wall art!

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