DIY Bamboo and Resin Trivet
Purchasing a housewares item, then updating it with resin is an easy way to give your kitchen a special touch.
Supply list for this resin project:
Resin Obsession Super Clear Resin
Resin Obsession Transparent Pigments: Red and Yellow
Bamboo trivet with cut out slots
Wooden stir sticks
Place a strip of packing tape across each of the slots and burnish the edges really well.
Measure out 1oz (30mls) resin and 1/2oz (15mls) hardener. Add one drop of transparent yellow pigment to the resin and mix well. If the colour is lighter than you’d like, add a second drop. Pour both parts into a larger cup and mix completely. Leave on your bench for the bubbles to dissipate for 5 minutes.
Draw the resin up into the pipette without creating any bubbles.
Drip the resin into the horizontal cavities of the trivet, directly onto the packing tape. Pick up the trivet from time to time and look underneath to check that the resin is filling all the cavities under the cross bars.
Measure 1 1/2oz (45mls) resin and 3/4oz (22.5mls) hardener and colour the resin with transparent red pigment, adding one drop at a time until you are happy with the depth of the color. Mix the two parts together and set aside for five minutes to allow the bubbles to rise. Draw the resin into the pipette and drip it into the vertical slots until they are level with the top of the trivet. Set aside to cure.
Remove the tape from the back of the trivet and it is ready for use.
This DIY Bamboo and resin trivet would make a great housewarming gift or a bridal shower gift.
