How To Resin Live Edge Wood

Posted on 10 Apr 12:24

Live edge wood - the name pretty much says it all, right? 
A slab of wood in its natural state, with the raw line of the tree trunk left intact along its edge.  

But ... live edge wood is so much more!  

It represents a much more holistic approach:  an approach in which those parts of the tree's history once viewed as flaws, such as knots, burls, curves, are honoured for their unique beauty.   

Live edge wood has captured the attention of ArtResin artists for good reason:
 
- epoxy resin makes wood positively glow, highlighting the colour and natural beauty of the grain
- resin gives wood a slick, smooth, shiny finish, all while protecting and preserving it like nothing else can. It's the perfect bridge between rustic and modern!
- a piece of live edge wood is like a piece of organic artwork, proving yet again that Mother Nature is the best artist :) And ArtResin's super glossy, crystal clear formula transforms wood into functional one-of-a-kind pieces of art and great conversation pieces!
- ArtResin epoxy resin is FDA approved, making it safe for use on cheese boards, charcuterie boards and other surfaces that come in contact with food!
 
Join ArtResin's Rebecca and her brother Jordan as they team up to coat a live edge slab of wood with ArtResin, turning it into a gorgeous charcuterie board! 

As always, Rebecca shares a ton of helpful tips and insight along the way :)
