sounds like a cool wedding topper idea!

i prep the wood first- then i use painter's tape around the edge (without about 1/4" sticking up above the edge).
i pour in layers of 1/8" add part of the image and let the resin cure at least 8 hrs, pour another 1/8" coat and add another part of the image and let that layer cure and so on depending on how many layers the piece will have.

as far as air bubbles are concerned, carbon dioxide will pop them, so you can actually breathe on them to pop them up to about 1.5 hrs after pouring the resin. BUT, the fumes are not good to breathe in so you should be careful if using this method. (i use a straw to blow on the bubbles).
also make sure to cover your work with a box or something to avoid getting dust particles on the resin surface and be sure to work in a well ventilated working space.

a couple of tips when using paper and resin- most paper will actually turn translucent if it is not properly coated on both sides with a gel medium or mod-podge. this can actually give a piece an interesting look, but if you don't want a translucent appearance- make sure to coat your paper and let it properly dry before setting it in resin.

doing a double sided piece is no trouble, just work on one side and when it's finished and the resin has properly cured switch to the other side.

hope that helps-i'd be really interested in seeing your finished project!

what medium is this in? acrylic paint? and what kind of paper is it you used? I was thinking of trying illustrations board maybe? I love this project, thanks for the inspiration!  Grin

Haha I thought I put a comment on your post already but just noticed I haven't yet. Grin

Yes I'm new to craftser to and I love your illustration style and your love for sweet's, it feels good to see new fellow craftster's that are willing to answer and help others on ideas and opinions.
I like the bacon one, makes me hungry and the Addicted cupcake with wings looks like something I'd love on my wall.

thanks bonesaw- i think it's great to share ideas and techniques because all of us benefit from others' knowledge.
(for instance- i learned that you shouldn't use hairspray as a fixative for drawings...who knew Grin)
