Use super glue to adhere the pieces together quickly.
Once you have your design completely assembled, spray it with a couple coats of Resin Spray to seal the wood.
Flip it back over and place inside a box in case the resin leaks at all.
Next, mix your Envirotex Lite! Please put on your vinyl gloves first. As you can see I missed that in this step, but soon realized my mistake and put them on for the rest of the project. You don’t want this stuff on your hands!
Mix equal amounts of Part A and B in a large cup. Stir thoroughly then pour the resin into smaller cups for coloring.
Pour the resin into each section as you like. As you can see mine leaked a little because I didn’t have the tape pressed on well enough. When I noticed this I put something heavy on the frame to hold it down better and it prevented more leaking. Just a tip.
Once you have it all poured, let the entire thing cure for 24 hours.
Remove the tape from the back of the artwork.
The back will have a matte finish because of the tape, so you may need to spray the back again with Resin Spray to finish it off and create a glossy finish again. Once that dries, you’re done!
I hope you like this Wood Framed Faux Stained Glass artwork. It was really fun to create and I can think of many designs I’d like to do.
