DIY Resin Shark Decor for Shark Week! Craft Klatch

Let’s kick it up a notch and make BIG Resin Shark Art!  It’s a great DIY project for your garden, or your home decor!!!

You will need:
2′ x 4′ MDF:  hardware or home improvement store
Silver spray paint/primer:
Glass gem: craft store – in the floral department
Black multi-surface paint:
White acrylic paint:
Dremel for sanding:
Resin:  Use whatever resin you are most comfortable with!  If you want to put it outside, use a resin that is UV resistant.

Here is the video tutorial:


1.  Draw a shark on poster board and cut it out.  Then trace it onto a piece of MDF.

2.  Cut it out with a jigsaw.

3.  Sand the edges.

4.  Spray paint it silver or gray.

5.  Paint on the details – 

Like the belly…

The mouth…

The gills…

6.  Glue on the eye.  I made the eye out of a glass gem and painted the back of the eye black, with multi-surface paint.

7.  Mix resin and I added a little tint of pigment powder and transparent blue pigment.

8.  Pour it onto the shark and move it around.

9.  Use a torch to pop the bubbles.

10.  Allow it to cure for 12 hours before handling it.

11.  Now you have a colossal shark to for your decor inside, or out!  If you put it outside, be sure to seal the backside too!

That’s it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
