Hi there friends! So we are back to finish up the pour paint resin project, Where we left off last time I showed you what I had done to 4 frames, but also mentioned that I had bought 8 more. Well ..... I went crazy and made 4 more! I'm not going to go too deeply into the pour painting or resin process as I did cover that in the first blog: www.thepatternedpaperplate.com/blog/pour-paint-resin-frames-part-1
I will say that I tried a slightly different approach with the resin for a few and added some sparkles which turned out really nice! You will see the finished product at the end, no worries!
So basically with each side of each frame I did the pour painting, let that dry, added some letter stickers and other details as I saw fit and covered in as many coats of resin were needed to fill the frame indent. I then painted each frame. Of the 8 frames, 2 I painted silver, 2 gold, 2 black and 2 brown. I used some painters tape over the dry resin to help create straight lines when painting.
Once that was all complete, it was time to make these hangable! I acquired some little eye hook screws from my mother and bought some chain off Amazon. I spray painted half of the eye hooks gold and left the other half silver. I then used a very small drill bit to make pilot holes and screwed two eye hooks into the top of each frame. I used pliers to open up links of the chain to the length I wanted and then attached it to the eye hooks.
And now, the thing you've all been waiting for ... the finished frames! I'm going to show you all 8 and will show you both sides of each. Sit back and relax! Also please don't judge for how you can see my camera in some of the photos. It is nearly impossible to take a photo of a shiny surface like resin without seeing something reflected back!
There they are everyone! I am honestly so proud of these. They were a labor of love and took a while to get finished, but they were worth it! If you have any specific questions about any frames and how they were made, feel free to leave them in the comments below!
And, as always, I'd be happy to sell these if anyone is interested! Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to know more. I would be happy to do sales in the greater Manchester, New Hampshire area. I am still trying to hype myself up to make an Etsy shop and we are not quite there yet :)
Talk to you soon friends!
