Use Decoupage glue to cover the back side of the canvas, making sure to reach right to the edges. This should dry within 15-30 minutes.
Elevate your project (we placed ours on disposable cups around the frame) and lay plastic underneath to catch any drips. The bottom of your project may be taped with masking tape to ensure a neat finish if desired.
Measure precisely one part resin (red cap) and one part hardener (black cap) in a disposable cup. For each 250mL of Liquid Gloss, you will coat an area of approximately 60cm x 60cm. Mix thoroughly with a broad, flat stirrer for several minutes. Avoid creating bubbles wherever possible.
Separate your ready-stirred mixture into required number of cups and add paint as desired. The mixture in the cup should be roughly 10 per cent paint to achieve a consistent colour. Stir through thoroughly (using a separate stirrer for each colour). Pour coloured resin onto your surface in the pattern desired. A toothpick or wooden skewer can be used to add swirls and patterns if desired. Using your stirrer, pick up run-off from your project and wipe this over the edges. This will encourage the resin to cover the sides of your project as it settles. To remove any bubbles, we recommend using a heat gun or small propane torch, sweeping lightly across the surface. Use with care as the flame may scorch the surface if held too close. The glossed surface must be left for at least 24 hours in a dust-free environment before it will be touchdry. Your project will take several more days to cure fully.
