Create an address sign for your home with EnviroTex Lite® Pour On High Gloss Finish.
Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft! My husband and I moved into our first home almost 5 years ago and we’ve talked recently about moving on to our next house. While there usually comes a time to downsize or find a bigger home – that original one will always remain your first home. Our homes are full of memories and an address sign can be the perfect way to celebrate a new home or to remember an old one.
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR RESIN ADDRESS SIGN:
- EnviroTex Lite® Pour On High Gloss Finish
- Wood Sign (with a lip)
- Wood Stain
- House Numbers
- Wooden Name (optional)
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
Step 1: Start by painting or staining your wooden sign. If you are adding a last name, paint or stain it too!
Step 2: Next, glue the house numbers in place. I used my Cricut Maker to cut my last name – I glued it right under our house number. I also used mismatched numbers for a bit more fun 🙂
Step 3: Now you are ready for the Envirotex Lite Pour On. This is a multi-step process so don’t start mixing until you are ready to do the whole process from beginning to end!
Start by mixing EQUAL parts of the Hardener and the Resin. Stir for two minutes (be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides) then pour from the first cup into a second and mix with a new stir stick for another minute.
Step 4: Once it’s ready, pour directly onto your wood sign! Step 5: Use a brush to help spread the resin.
Step 6: After about 20 minutes you’ll see bubbles appear on the surface of the resin – you can use a butane torch to pop these or simply breathe on it like I did! It’s the CO2 in your breath that releases the bubbles – not the heat!
This resin address sign would make a perfect housewarming gift idea! Who wouldn’t love a custom sign to celebrate their new home – plus being handmade gets you extra bonus points!
There are so many ways you could customize this project to fit your home style and decor. I hope this project inspires you to create your own resin address sign!
