Marbled Resin Round Serving Tray DIY
It’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing an especially awesome resin craft! This uniquely colorful marbled resin tray is perfect for serving up warm cocoa on a cold day. This fun project would make a great gift also. Let’s get started.
Round Wood Tray
Mixing cups, stirring sticks, disposable gloves and work surface
Variety of acrylic paints
Begin by reading the directions for the Envirotex Lite High Gloss Resin. Mix 1 part resin and 1 part hardener and stir continuously for 2 minutes. Then pour the resin into a second cup and use a new stick to stir for 1 more minute. Next pour a small amount of mixed resin into smaller cups. Add a small blob of acrylic paint to each cup.
Pour the mixed resin all into one cup in a bulls-eye pattern as pictured below.
Then use a stirring stick to swirl and pull the resin around. By dragging in towards the center and out toward the edges it creates an almost floral look with the marbling. After 20 minutes, use a mini torch or heat gun to gently pop any bubbles that have formed. Now set it aside to cure and dry for 48 hours.
Just add cocoa!
