WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- Resin - use this link and code HANNAH for 10% off your order and free shipping! I recommend the 4 Star 1:1 Thin Coat Resin
- liquid/mica pigments
- Silicone coaster molds
- Measuring jug and mixing spatula
- 6 mini silicone cups
- Mixing sticks
- Blow torch
- Heat gun
MIX YOUR RESIN
Measure out equal parts of resin and hardener into your plastic mixing jug, starting with your hardener. You shouldn’t need more than 400ml of fully mixed resin, therefore 200ml of hardener and 200ml of resin.
Combine and mix well for at least 5 mins.
MIX YOUR COLOURS
Split the resin between 6 mini silicone cups and colour 5 of them to your liking leaving 1 clear.I coloured mine as follows:
- Cup 1 - Glittery teal
- Cup 2 - Antique gold
- Cup 3 - Deep teal
- Cup 4 - White
- Cup 5 - A mix of 3 glitters
- Cup 6 - Clear
POUR YOUR RESIN
Now add each colour to each of your 4 molds. However, don’t use up all of your resin in one go. Start with just one layer.
I like to start with the center colour and then the outside colour and carry on from there. Add rings of colour in any order you like.
To see how I filled my coaster molds, check out my YouTube video using my links in this post.
Pop some bubbles using your blow torch and then blend your rings using your heat gun.
Repeat the earlier steps adding more resin rings. Then add the clear resin to spread and blend all the colours.
Blend and pop some more bubbles before leaving your coasters to cure for at least 12 hours.
All that’s left to do now is demold and fall in love! It’s that easy!
