Making Resin Car Coasters

Learn how to make beautiful car coasters with resin!
Yield: 2 coasters

Materials

  • Car Coaster Molds
  • Medium Viscosity Artist Resin
  • White Snow Dispersion Color
  • White Brea Reese Alcohol Ink
  • White opaque casting pigment
  • Amery Glitter
  • Pink Galaxy Glitter
  • Protective gloves
  • Filter mask
  • Large Silicone Mixing Sticks
  • Glitter Spoon
  • Silicone Mixing Cup
  • medicine cups
  • Torch
  • Silicone mat
  • Small plastic stick

Instructions

  • Start by mixing 30 ml of Medium Viscosity Resin. Pour a tiny bit of combined epoxy into a medicine cup. Add a decent amount of Amery glitter. You want the resin and glitter combo to be thick so it doesn't spread too much in the mold.
  • Then pour about 5 ml into another medicine cup and add a tiny bit of your white paste to it. Stir to combine and add more paste if you need to until the mixture is opaque.
  • Next, fill your molds about half way with clear combined resin. Push it to the edge so the whole bottom of the coaster is covered. Use the torch to pop any bubbles.
  • Now make your flower center by placing a small amount of the glitter resin at the center of your molds.
  • Then use your plastic stick to dip into the white resin and draw circles around the center of the flowers. You want your rings to be close together.
  • Next, use your stick to drag from the outside of the pigment towards the center of your flower. Start by doing it in 4 spots equal distance apart, wiping your stick off after each pull. Then pull from the center of each of the 4 sections you made. This is your first layer, set them aside to cure for at least 3-5 hours.
  • When you are ready for your second layer, combine another 30 ml batch of resin. Then add about 4-6 good scoops of the Pink Galaxy glitter and stir to combine. Finally, fill the rest of your mold with the pink resin mix.
