Snowflake Coasters Another Coaster Friday

I'm not a fan of winter, but can appreciate its beauty.  I made these coasters for the winter season.  It's cold outside and they capture that icy feeling.  It's an easy resin coaster crafts and home decor project!  Check out the craft tutorial below.

You will need:

-  Snowflakes:  https://amzn.to/2NlNufg
-  Big snowflake:  https://amzn.to/2NoLvXx
-  Glitter:  https://amzn.to/34PrY8m
I used a variety of blues - both fine and coarse
-  Easy Cast:  http://amzn.to/2yjYmBC
Art Resin:  http://amzn.to/2yk9X3z
Clear Cast:  http://amzn.to/2z4rxGw
This is the resin I have been using most recently:
FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.

Here is the video tutorial:



Directions:
1.  Prepare your resin according to the package directions.  
2.  Separate the resin into two small disposable cups and mix glitter into each.
3.  Pour the resin glitter mixture into each or the molds.  Note:  I made enough to cover the bottom of the mold, so it would not be too thick, realizing I would have to do clear top coat.
4.  Carefully place in the snowflakes.
5.  Allow to sit for several hours.
6.  Prepare resin according to package directions.  Pour enough resin in each coaster to fully embed the snowflakes.
7.  Let is sit for at least 12 hours.

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