The Spoon Too Good To Eat With

 You'll be rummaging through your kitchen drawers before you even finish reading this blog post.
 Last week I gave you a little explanation about how to work in a spoon with Envirotex Lite.
Well, I had a follow-up question.  So I thought I better show you.  In the third image above I encouraged everyone to pour one layer of Envirotex Lite resin into your spoon to create a flat surface to work on.  That resin cures and is permanently attached to the spoon in 48 hours.
 Then you can add images and embellishments.  You can even do some doming if you are patient enough to do three pours for this project.
 When you fold over the spoon you immediately create a dangle that a chain can go through.  If you fold it the way I show you in my sample you can also use the spoon handle as another dangle.  I made this hole so that I could attach my charm.
 Didn't that turn out great?  You won't be able to walk by an antique market without rummaging through their cutlery.  There are so many vintage and silver orphaned spoons to work in!
