How to Make a Swiss Cheese Resin Cutting Board
Step One: Cutting Board Prep
a. Cover all areas of the cutting board where you do not want resin. Take your time with this step because it will determine the quality of your final piece.
b. Cut out tape circles using your painter’s tape and some wax paper. Peel the painter’s tape off the wax paper and place it on your board where you would like the holes in the swiss cheese resin to be.
c. Cut half-inch tabs of painter’s tape and fold them in half, placing them onto each circle. These tabs should act as little handles, allowing you to pull the tape circles off after the resin has partially cured.
Step Two: Base Paint
a. Using either yellow or white acrylic paint, paint the area of the cutting board you would like the resin swiss cheese to be. Don’t worry about painting over your tape circles, but try to avoid the tabs. You do not want the tabs to get stuck to the board, making it harder for you to pull off the tape circles.
b. Remember to paint the sides of the cutting board!
Step Three: Mix and Apply Resin
a. Mix a small amount of epoxy resin, according to the directions on the bottle. (You will not need more than a quarter cup of resin if you are doing a cutting board like the one I demonstrate in the video.)
b. Mix light yellow acrylic paint (a dime-sized amount) with your epoxy resin until the color has thoroughly mixed into the resin.
b. Pour your colored resin onto the painted area of your cutting board.
Step Four: Let Dry (Partially) and Remove Tape
a. Let dry for half of the time it takes your resin to cure. (Usually 6-8 hours)
b. Pull off your tape circles using the tabs as best you can.
c. Using a razor blade or pocket blade, clean up the circles as best as possible. (Do not worry if you end up exposing some of the base paint. We will fix this in the next step.
Step Five: Clean up Paint and Let Cure Completely
a. Using a paint cleaning medium, such as turpentine or acetone, rub off any of the base paint that was exposed when cleaning up the circles.
b. Let your resin finish curing and ENJOY your new, very chic, cheese cutting board!
