Butterfly Resin Art DIY

Posted by on


Make a beautiful work of art in resin with butterfly images and twigs from your back yard. Watch the short video tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOApo-zFpb0

Step 1

Glaze Coat (epoxy resin)
Butterfly images
Minwax Polycrylic
Large plastic box frame
Copies of leaves

Step 2

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
