DIY Heart made from Paper, Resin and MDF

Making this heart wall art was really just a culmination of a few different things going on at once. One, we wanted to experiment a little more with coating paper transfers with resin and two; Valentine’s Day is right around the corner so we thought – why not? If you …

Make A Martian Manhunter Emblem

The Martian Manhunter emblem / logo is the last emblem we will be making for the Justice League / DC wall we’ve been working on for the past few months. Much like the Aquaman emblem we made a few weeks ago, this one is also very simple, at least as …

Make an Aquaman Emblem

The Aquaman emblem/logo is yet another addition to the DC/Justice League portion of our superhero wall. The Aquaman emblem is admittedly a very simplistic and some might even say boring addition to the wall, but one that is most necessary considering the theme. This symbol, like all of the others …

How to Cast Wood in Resin

This was all made possible by James Wright who graciously bagged up some beautiful wood curls he had left over from a cutting board project and sent them our way. We decided to throw some designs into a couple of coaster molds, using the curls, just to see how they …

Make A Green Lantern Emblem

We’ve made a few of these in the past and have steadily been adding them to what we have decided to call our “superhero wall”. We did things a bit differently this time, however, using oak as the wood and adding black paint to the inside edge of the emblem. …

Make A DIY Wind Spinner

We’re not exactly sure what this is called, but we really like them. We’ve seen them hanging on porches and in flower beds before. We’ve also seen them in the store, but we’ve never bought one. They are probably made out of plastic for the most part, but we thought …

Make A Hanging Bird Bath

Make A Flash Emblem

Make A Nerds Coaster

The whole idea for this project came from a family member. An aunt of ours absolutely loves Nerds candy. Her birthday was coming up soon and we thought it would be neat to cast some Nerds in resin and make a few coasters. It’s a really simple process and doesn’t …

Make A Wonder Woman Emblem

Our little Justice League / DC wall is coming along nicely. Thus far we’ve made a Superman and Batman emblem and thought it only made sense to do the Wonder Woman emblem next. The technique we used for this one is a bit different, however. We took a suggestion from …

Casting A Resin Tape Measure Clock

We’ve wanted to make a clock for some time now. We’ve also wanted to try molding and casting an object that was a bit bigger and more detailed so we could really test the limits of using Famowood Glaze Coat as a casting resin. The tape measure clock is the …

Make A Wood Batman Emblem

So far, this series of superhero emblems is coming along nicely, We’ve done Superman, so obviously it was time for Batman. This emblem is made almost exactly like the last one and consists of a piece of walnut and some colored resin. The batman emblem started out pretty much like …

Make A Wood Superman Emblem

The goal is to cover the wall behind my computer desk with superhero emblems, or at least cover the majority of it. I figured I would start with the Justice League’s founding members. So to kick things off, we have Superman. It turned out pretty good and I love having …
