Directions:

4.  Then I used the back of a skewer stick to make polka dots.






5.  For a different technique, I stenciled a red heart.


6.  Then I stenciled some gold in the middle.

...and added it to the canvas.

Angel Resin Coaster Craft Tutorial | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch

Let's make a resin coaster!  Today we are making an angel coaster for Christmas!

Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:

Directions:

1.  I mixed one ounce of resin and mixed in a little flesh colored acrylic paint.  When using acrylic paint to color resin, you need to using it sparingly, otherwise you risk the resin not fully hardening.

2.  I poured the resin into the mold.

3.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

4.  Once cured, I painted the features, with acrylic paint.



5.  I mixed one more ounce of resin and poured it over the coaster.

6.  I used the lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

7.  Once cured, I removed it from the mold.  I traced around it, so I could draw a template for the hair.


8.  I traced the hair on yellow felt and cut it out.


9.  I glued them together, but left a hole at the top.


10.  I slipped the coaster into the hair.

11.  Take wire and bend it into a halo, with a stem.




12.  I drilled a hole into the top of the coaster, for the halo to go into.  You want it to fit snug.

13.  Put in the halo.

14.  You can seal up the hole now.

That's it!

Now you have an angel coaster!
