I first started out with a small 5" x 7" frame that I spray painted in a lovely semi-flat black. Then attached the piece of glass to the inside of the frame with superglue. That I allowed to set overnight just to make sure there would be no weird reaction with the resin.
I added to 6 different cups a tiny amount of black, blue, violet, yellow, green and white dyes as well as a tiny amount of the pearlescent powder to each cup.
I mixed up a batch of Amazing Clear Cast Resin and after allowing the bubbles to settle for a bit, I poured a small amount of the resin to each cup – mixing each again, very thoroughly! The Pearlescent is so-o-o-o-o beautiful in all the colors! It adds just the right amount of sparkle, or in this case, STARS!!!

I poured each color separately into the frame, allowing them to mix together a bit. I used a popsicle stick to push around the resin colors that I wanted to shape a bit more. Then sat back and allowed this to cure! Here in Vancouver, the curing time wasn't long, and I was able to see the results within 4 hours.
I flipped the piece over and boy was I surprised! The pearlescent powder had settled ever so on the glass that the resin was poured onto, and I ended up achieving a crazy sparkly effect! It's gorgeous!
Since this was so reflective and hard to capture in a photo, here's a little video capturing the full sparkly effect! If you have trouble viewing video, please CLICK HERE.
Now to do larger galaxies!!!! I can't wait to make more of these... as it was so easy to make. What a dramatic piece of art to add to your wall!
