It’s been a while so let’s do an epoxy project! I was curious what would happen if I mixed a bunch of colored epoxy together when it was still in its liquid form. I have seen many beautiful projects that have layers of different colors but I’m fairly confident this was done by waiting for the epoxy to cure between each layer. I do not have that patience, so I was curious to see what would happen if I missed everything in one pour.
Glitter is my arch nemesis. It gets everywhere, stays on everything, and nothing will ever make it go away. So, what do I do? I decide to use it in a project! One of the great things about the epoxy/glitter combination is that the glitter is completely encased in the epoxy. No extra mess once the project is done! I love the combination of a clear epoxy and glitter because the shine is really brought to the forefront and adds that flicker of sparkle underneath the candlelight.
Living near the great lake means I have a large container of sea glass. My pockets always end up being full after every trip I take to the beach. But I didn't want to just keep them sitting in a bowl in the corner of a room, collecting dust. So I decided to see what type of art I could make by encasing the glass in epoxy! I wanted to make a nautical piece since sea glass naturally reminds me of the water.
When creating projects, I often find myself having a lot of scraps at the end and throwing them away just doesn’t feel right. I hate wasting things, especially something I can use for a project (I know I have the beginning thought process of a hoarder, hopefully I can keep it in check!). Since the left-over pieces were relatively flat, I decided that they would be perfect for making jewelry! And it’s a perfect way to display those lovely ocean-like patterns.
Living next to the Great Lakes has allowed water to enchant me from a young age. The waves splitting against the shore making a ripple of bubbles and color under the clear sky. The image is just too perfect. So, what better way to honor it than with an artistic interpretation? I have seen pictures of epoxy cutting board floating around the internet and I thought it would be a good idea to try my hand at one.
It’s no big secret that I love trying new things and about a year ago my solution to everything was epoxy. Didn’t like the countertops? Use epoxy. Wanted to replace the doorknobs but too much wood was missing? Use Epoxy. Like seriously, my solution for every hardware and craft problem was epoxy. But as the weather got colder, I had to stop doing epoxy pours as the reaction did not do well under cold weather. But now the weather has turned a bit warmer, nothing is going to stop me. I also noticed that more petals were falling off of bouquet of dried flowers I had and this was my best idea on how to preserve them. And I recently bought a stupid amount of silicone molds just to have fun!
