DIY Glitter Resin Signs

I am in love with all things pink, all things glitter and this concept of resin, which is new for me. As I am planning my wedding I have been really impressed with the cool ideas that I have found along the way to help me stay within budget, yet capture the quality I am looking for. Thank God I am a DIY kind of girl so that I can make a lot of these things myself!

Supplies Needed:

20 x 36 Birch Plywood

6” Vinyl Letters

Mod Podge

Lots of Glitter

EnviroTex Lite High Gloss Finish Resin 32 ounce kit

4 Plastic buckets

Painter’s Tape

Duct Tape

Aluminum Foil

Heavy Plastic Sheeting (polyethylene)

Ruler

Cardstock scraps

Straw

1. To start, use patterning tape or painter’s tape to tape off where you want your letters on the plywood.

2. Apply your letters, keeping the spacing between the letters uniform (ours are 1/2”) as well as keeping the space between words uniform (1”). This helps keep the words even!

3. Remove all the patterning tape or painter’s tape. Voila!

4. Mix glitter together in whatever proportion you like. We used two parts magenta, one part light pink, and a dash of gold. It works best to mix your glitter before you start applying it (instead of as you’re applying it).

5. Starting in the middle of your sign, slather on the Mod Podge and then cover in glitter, paying special attention to the edges around the letters and the space in between the letters.

6. Once you have completely coated the area in between and around the letters, continue applying coats of Mod Podge and glitter as you move toward the edges of the sign. If you want the same faded effect as our sign, use lighter coats of Mod Podge and glitter as you extend outward to the edges of your sign. You could also change the proportions of glitter here—using more light pink/gold for a more pronounced fading effect.

7. Let the sign dry overnight and then remove the vinyl letters. If you want to stop here, you can just spray your project with some clear acrylic and done.

8. To coat your project in resin (and make it last way longer), you’ll first want to place a piece of painter’s tape around each of the edges on the back side of your sign. This helps prevent leaks when you’re pouring the resin.

9. Next you’ll build a frame for the resin to sit in. Do this by securing tin foil onto duct tape and then pushing it firmly around the edges of your sign, leaving a foil lip. Make sure none of the sticky duct tape is sticking up above the edge where the resin might touch it, or it will stick to the resin.

10. Follow the manufacturer’s directions to mix the resin. For ours we measured exactly and then mixed for two minutes. Then we transferred it to another bucket and mixed for one minute. Finally, we poured it on to the sign.

11. Use a scrap of cardstock to spread the resin to all corners.

12. About fifteen minutes after you pour the resin, you’ll notice bubbles begin to appear. Pop these bubbles by gently blowing through a straw onto them.

13. Let your project cure for one to three days (depending on temperature) and then remove your frame and sand any accidents off the edges. Done!
