How to Make an Oreo Cookie Coaster - Another Coaster Friday


I had a lot of my subscribers asking me to do an Oreo Cookie coaster, so here it is.  Unfortunately, it involved me eating more Oreos (double stuff of course) then anyone should in one sitting.

This coaster is thicker than it really needed to be because I used the double stuffed.  If you use the regular ones, you can use less resin.  Also, the Oreo writing on the cookie gets lost when the resin is poured on it.  If you remember the flower jewel coaster, they lost their beveled cuts also.  



You will need:

-  Oreo cookies - I used a regular sized one and the snack sized ones around it.
-  Coaster mold (click here to see how to make one using an egg ring, or you can purchase one - I linked the one I have in the Products I Use section).
-  Resin - I use Easy Cast - It's available at Michaels and Hobby Lobby as well as online, or if you are looking for it internationally, go to their website at www.eti-usa.com and they have a listing of where it is sold.


Here is the video tutorial:



Directions:

1.  Prepare your resin according to the package directions.  
2.  Pour a thin layer in the bottom of your mold and place the Oreos into the resin.  
3.  Allow to cure for 12 hours.  
4.  Pour your next layer of resin over the cookies.  I will warn you, this coaster will have many bubbles coming up because the cookies are so porous.  You will have to be vigilant with your lighter to straw to keep popping the bubbles for the first hour or so.
5.  Allow to cure for at least 12 hours before unfolding.

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
