Resin Flo Paint Poured Hairpin Leg Log Slice Table
Flo painting or dirty pours are so much fun.  They leave an amazing marbled effect with swirls and splotches of colors.  If you haven't tried this craft out yet, do it!  It's highly addicting.
Let's make an amazing end table with a log slice and hairpin legs.
Find a big level log slice or use another wood surface for your tabletop.
You will need:
Log slice
4 Hairpin Legs
Envirotex Lite High Gloss Resin
Acrylic Craft Paint
Gloves, Mixing cups, stirring sticks, disposable worksurface, etc.
I began by wrapping my log with duct tape, but it was not effective, so don't worry about this step.  Instead, begin by reading the directions for the envirotex lite resin.
Mix one part resin and one part hardener in a disposable mixing cup.  Stir for 2 minutes, then transfer into a new cup and use a new stick to stir for 1 more minute.
Pour over the log top.
Smooth it around with a stirring stick.
Let it set and dry for about an hour.
Next mix another cup of resin according to the mixing directions.
Put about a teaspoon of colored paint into different mixing cups.
Pour in the mixed resin and mix the color into it.
Pour all the resin into one cup.
Place the cup on a piece of cardboard, flip the cup and cardboard upside down and then quickly slide it onto the log. 
Then lift up the cup!
Swirls of color splash out in every direction!
And it will drip down the edges of the log, no worries.
Use whatever resin is remaining in the cups and pour it out over the top of the log.
Let it set for about 20 minutes.
Then gently warm it with a torch or heat gun to pop any formed bubbles.  Now cover with a big box to prevent dust or floating particles from landing on it while wet.
Let it dry and cure for at least 24 to 72 hours.  I removed the tape from my edges only to find that the seal wasn't strong enough to the bark and the resin dripped all down the edges. 
I handed it over to my son and had him sand down the bark edges.  Look closely at the cool blue resin in the edge patterns, I love how it turned out!  Happy accident, right?  That's it, get some resin and get flo painting today!
