To make the cake stand:
1. Find a plate and vase that go well together. Or, if you can’t find a plate and a vase, consider using something else, like an ashtray and a cocktail glass that would fit a perfectly sized jumbo cupcake. This is a place to use those curious bits you have collected. “You can use something you already have or buy a few items from a vintage store, flea market or thrift store,” Emma says.
2. Next, thoroughly clean your pieces. Epoxy is strong stuff, but you want it sticking to your object, not to dust. Make sure they look their best, and let them dry thoroughly.
3. Lay the plate face-down on a flat, clean surface and center the bottom of the vase on it. Get a good eye for where you will want it. Now pick it up and line the bottom of the vase with epoxy. Return it firmly to its centered position.
4. Last, it’s time to let the piece dry. Simply stack a few heavy books on it and consult your epoxy instructions for the drying time.
