What you need:

Aleene’s Clear Coating & Casting Epoxy Resin Kit

- Cutting board

- Plastic cups

- Painter’s tape

- Heat gun (optional)

- Plastic surface cover

Step 1

Resin cutting board supplies

Before getting started on creating your marbled resin cutting board, make sure to read the instructions in your kit thoroughly. Resin epoxy has an open working time of 40 minutes, so you’ll want to ensure that you have a clear understanding of how to use it (if this is your first time working with resin).

Step 2

Mask off cutting board with tape

To prep your cutting board for the resin epoxy, clean and dry it, then mask off the section you’ll be marbling with painter’s tape. Cover your work surface with a disposable plastic tablecloth. 

Step 3

Mix equal parts resin and hardener

Follow the instructions in your kit to mix equal parts (1:1 ratio) of resin and hardener into a plastic cup. You’ll want to do this for each color you plan on creating your overall marbled effects with.

Step 4

Add resin pigment to each cup

Add your desired amount of resin pigment to each cup with resin/hardener mix.

Step 5

Stir pigment in each cup

Stir each pigment until thoroughly mixed, following instructions to minimize creating any air bubbles.

Step 6

Pour each color onto cutting board

Pour each color onto the cutting board in whatever fashion you like.

Step 7

Use craft stick to create marbled designs

While the colored resin is still wet, use a craft stick to create marbled designs however you like. Optional: if there are any air bubbles that show up, you can use a heat gun on low to help them dissipate.

Step 8

Allow resin to cure

After you’re happy with the look of your marbled resin, wipe any wet resin that may have dripped down the sides of the cutting board, and allow the marbled resin on the board to cure per the instructions in the kit.
