More than a thousand Kmart lovers reacted to the post – in awe of the amazing beachscape inside the serving tray.

‘This is beautiful, I need resin right now,’ one woman said.

‘That would compliment any home,’ another said. 

Another woman wondered if the serving tray would look better with sand glued onto the beach picture. 

Others wanted the clever mum to list the steps and materials she used to make the beautiful piece of serving wear so they could make one of their own. 

She directed them to a video explaining how to pour resin at home.

HOW CAN I SAFELY USE RESIN?

 1 – Use in a ventilated area and with disposable gloves and protective clothing.

2 – Don’t use resin moulds or mixing containers for food once they have been used for resin. 

3 – Wear safety goggles and a mask. 

4 – Clean up spills immediately.

5 – Use soap and water to remove resin from skin. 

‘I watched this video to learn the steps before I started,’ she said.

The video goes through all the steps – from pouring the resin into a cup to spread, to adding colours and finally to pouring the sticky substance onto the desired surface.

Some mums commented on the post warning would-be decorators that resin can be dangerous and to wear personal protective equipment when using it.
