I created this beautiful resin butterfly paperweight with ETI resin and paint and absolutely LOVE the results!

Supplies used:

ETI Envirotex Lite
ETI opaque pigment in blue
Mica flakes
Heidi Swapp paper butterfly
Deco Art decoupage medium
ColorBox Surfacez™ brown ink

This cast involved 4 pourings to allow for the suspended effect of the items inside.I love how the blue paint is billowing inside the paperweight. This was achieved by blending opaque pigment with resin mix inside a mixing cup so it became ‘goopy’. About 1 1/2 hours after I poured the clear resin into the mold I gently introduced the goopy concoction and gave it a quick swirl.

TIP: Always seal all paper with a decoupage medium or spray sealer like ETI spray sealer.
