Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    The new craft Glaze Coat resin from E-6000

  • Step 2

    1. Nail your tray together using 1″ long nails
    2. Sand the edges so they’re even and smooth
    3. Paint the base with Americana Decor Metallics in Antique Brass
    4. Paint the edges and bottom with Americana Decor Satin Enamels in True Teal
    5. Cut out your butterfly images
    6. & 7. Decoupage the butterflies to the base of the tray and let dry
    *Mist each butterfly with a spray bottle to relax the paper to prevent bubbles
    *Finish with a generous coat of decoupage over all of the images and on the inside edges of the tray
    8. Add brass corners (this step is optional but I think it makes the tray look expensive and chic!)
    9. & 10. Nail in the 1″ x 1″ wood pieces on the sides for handles and then paint in the True Teal
    11. Mix the Glaze Coat resin and pour evenly in the base of the tray
    *Spread with a sponge brush to help even it out
    12. Pop the bubbles with a small torch OR long arm lighter and let cure overnight
