Materials

  • Wooden tray (or substitute any non-porous tray with raised sides to prevent resin from leaking)
  • Assorted shells and treasures

Tools

  • Environmental Technology Envirotex Lite Pour On High Gloss Finish
  • Quick-dry glue

Basic Supplies

rubber gloves, newspaper (to cover work surface), disposable mixing cups, wooden mixing stick, disposable paintbrush, cloth, rubbing alcohol

Directions

STEP 1

  • Clean and dry shells. Arrange and adhere shells to tray using glue. Let dry.

STEP 2

  • Wearing rubber gloves, follow manufacturer's instructions to mix Envirotex Lite in disposable cup. Use disposable brush to spread Envirotex Lite around and over larger objects, if needed.

Tip

  • 1. If needed, re-coat tray for smoother finish with additional coat of Envirotex Lite. Wipe surface with clean cloth and rubbing alcohol and apply second coat as desired.
