HI!
With all the various functions coming I decided to make a serving tray with some Indian traditional theme. I found a real nice pic of an Indian folk dance.."dandiya". Can U guess whr i found it? not on internet, not in magazines but on a grocery bag!!!




I got the tray from Michaels, filed it, painted it and glued this pic on it. Added few red embellishments and now I am planning to pour hardener+resin to make it durable, and lot more shiny.

Wht do u think?

thanks n regards,
Akriti

NO way! A grocery bag? It's lovely!

I wish I knew a little more about resin. Could you tell me a little about it? Does one purchase such a thing at Michael's? Does it require special tools? What is the approximate cost? So many questions...

thanks.. Smiley

Hardener & resin can be used for lot of purposes, but i use it for finish. Its kind of sealant, they both come together in a pack. The one I use is: "Envirotex lite pour on high gloss finish". Its a bit more expensive than varnish but totally worth it. Yes, Michaels have it in their stores and I used 40% coupon for this. Grin
