Hey all! I wanted to show you how I decided to really treasure my Mom's found sea glass treasures. Growing up on the shores of Lake Champlain in VT/NY I came to know all about sea glass – we would go treasure hunting when I was a kid for the perfect rocks, pretty old glass or pottery shards. My mom saved some of these collections and when I lost her I gained her treasures. These have been sitting in a jar on my shelf and I wanted to do more with them... this is what I came up with. :)
I kind of just jumped into the project but one thing I knew for sure is that I wanted to use Amazing Clear Cast Resin for this project to show all the amazing colors I used. I had a metal tin I purchased at Michael's that I was going to use for this project because I wanted to be able to hang it up on the wall.
I took out my acrylic paints and started painting bright fun colors directly to the tin with various different instruments. This was my base layer for extra pops of color.
I wanted the word "wander" in there too because we always wandered the whole beach in search of the perfect little trinkets. These are Scrabble tiles.
After this was done I mixed up the Amazing Clear Cast Resin (CLICK HERE to see how to mix) and started pouring in a little bit on the bottom of the tin – I didn't want to completely cover everything. I wanted some pieces to stick out. I started putting in random pieces of sea glass and noticed some kind of got lost in it all. I then decided to make dots with the Clear Cast resin to show the difference in matte and gloss on the glass.
