(1). Apply tape along the back edge of the artboard.
(2). In one large cup, measure out equal amounts of Parts A, and B of EnviroTex Lite totaling 8oz.
(3). Mix the two parts together thoroughly, following the instructions included in the package.
(4). Pour some of the resin into three large cups and one small cup. Color one white and add 4 drops of silicone oil, one red-violet and one metallic rose. Color the small cup with spring rose.
(5). Place an irregular circle of glass chips in the center of the canvas.
(6). Pour white resin inside this area.
(7). Pour clear resin over the white resin. The silicone oil will create cells in the white resin.
(8). Pour the spring rose resin around the glass and then drizzle a line of white resin through the middle of the pink.
(9). Pour a metallic rose layer alongside the spring rose resin. Use the heat gun to merge the edges of the two colors.
(10). Pour some of the metallic rose resin into a smaller cup and add glitter. Pour this resin around the outside of the plain metallic rose resin. Pour white resin around this.
(11). Use the heat gun to push the white resin over the metallic rose. Pour clear resin through the metallic rose resin.
(12). Pour red-violet resin around the white resin and then leave a gap and pour another irregular circle of resin just in from the edge of the artboard.
(13). Mix another batch of resin and color 1/3 of it white and 1/3 of spring rose. Fill the gap with spring rose. Pour the white resin in through the middle of it.
(14). Pour resin through the white resin.
(15). Place another layer of crushed glass on the outside.
(16). Fill the space between the glass and the edge of the canvas with white resin. Drizzle a thin line of spring rose through the center of the white and feather it’s edged with the heat gun. Cover the sidewalls of the canvas with resin and then leave to cure for 24 hours.
(17). Wipe off all the silicone oil residue with denatured alcohol. Draw in some details using the gold and white markers.
(18). A clear topcoat can be applied to give added depth to the piece. Remove the tape from the back of the canvas once the resin has cured.
