Instructions

  • Pour some of your Polar glass into a mixing cup. Then add some of the Oz. Next add some of the Cotton Candy and Lucky. Finally, add your Royal Blue, Honey comb, and Aster and mix them all together.
  • In a second cup add some Amethyst, Bronze, and Blush.
  • In another cup add the Dragon Egg, Onyx, and Heart Stone. Make sure all of your stones in each cup are well mixed. Add more of anything you think needs a little more. When you have your mixes the way you want them you can move on to the next steps.
  • Mix equal amounts of parts A and B of the Artist Resin according to the package instructions. Then separate the combined resin into 3 separate cups.
  • Next add your amethyst stone mixture into one of the cups of resin. Add in some bronze foil flakes and stir well to combine.
  • In the next cup of resin add your multi colored mix and then some gold flakes. Stir well to combine.
  • Repeat the same process with your dark mix.
  • Hit the resin in each cup with your torch to pop the bubbles that have risen to the top. Be light with the heat so you don't melt your cup or cause the resin to heat too quickly.
  • Now sprinkle some Backstage along the edges of one of your molds. Then pour in your amethyst mix. Move things around until you get a placement you like. Then use the torch to pop any bubbles.
  • Next repeat the same process with your multi colored mix but use the Gold Record instead of the Backstage.
  • For the last coaster use the Sound Check and the dark mix to perform the same steps as the last two coasters you made.
