You may have seen something similar to this while scrolling through instagram or on Pinterest. Beautiful dried flowers appear to float under glass on slices of wood.
Our Outlet has many unique wood slices from small to large. Left unadorned, they are country casual. In the hands of a crafter though, they are a wonderful blank canvas.
If you plan on pouring resin onto your slice, you need to start your projects by applying several layers of a clear drying glue to the surface to seal the wood. I usually do this a full day before I begin working on their surface.
Once the wood is sealed, I then apply dried flowers, glitter, foil accents and more to the surface. I use markers to add some extra lines (see gold lines in finished slices) Everything is then carefully coated with several new layers of a clear drying glue and left to dry overnight.
When everything is dry I make a small batch of a two-part epoxy resin and paint it on the surface of my wood slice. I call this the glaze coat.
A second glaze coat the next day will ensure you have an even glassy surface.
In the next day or two I will drill a hole through the slice and use ribbon to turn them into ornaments.
