Wood Slice Resin Pour Ornaments
Hi Resin Crafters, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft sharing an awesome resin poured wood slice tutorial. Wood slice ornaments are perfect to give as neighbor gifts or to deck the tree with matching handmade ornaments. Make stunning wood slice ornaments using high gloss resin and the dirty pour technique. Resin pouring is a highly addictive craft, let’s get started!
- Envirotex Lite Pour-On High Gloss Finish
- Castin Craft Color Pigments
- Alcohol ink Metallic
- Wood Slices (I get mine here)
- Embossing Heat Gun
- Disposable Gloves, Worksurface, Mixing Cups, Stirring Sticks
Step One: Set up
Step 2: Mix up the Resin
Step 3: Add Color
Step 4: Dirty Pour
Step 5: Pour!
Now pour the resin onto the wood slice pieces while resting above the table for run off. Then pick up a wood slice and move the resin around all over the top of it by tilting and tipping. Some resin will run off the edges.
Then use the stirring sticks from the small cups and add any more resin in stripes across the wood slices.
Step 6: Blowing Heat
Now use the embossing heat gun to blow a little heat across the resin. This will spread the resin color out and add cells to the finish. This also pops any of the bubbles that have formed. Do not keep heat in one place too long or the resin will react badly. Just give each wood slice a quick pass or two of heat.
The amount of run off is a little much. But even the piles of run off are pretty and can be used in other crafts–like this one.
Step 7: Dry Overnight
