  • How to make a model or sculpture. Butterfly Resin Art  - Step 3
    Step 3

    Carefully cut out the butterfly images
    Seal both sides with an acrylic coating
    Figure out your twig and butterfly placement inside of the box frame
    *I like to snap a photo with my phone to remember my placement
    Mix the Glaze Coat for 5 minutes (outside)
    Pour a small layer and pop the bubbles with a lighter or small torch
    Quickly place the twigs and butterflies in resin
    Pour the rest of the resin on top of your pieces
    Pop the bubbles again and then sprinkle glitter in the resin
    Cover and let dry overnight outside on a flat surface
    Copy real leaves on a copy machine and decoupage them on the back when dry
