This is the resin I used for this project:
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.  Prep your vellum by cutting it to fit into your mold.



2.  Prepare your resin, according to the package directions.
Mix in chunky silver confetti.  Pour into mold and use the stir stick to help spread it to the edges of the mold.  

3.  Pop bubbles with your lighter and let it sit for 12 hours.

4.  In the meantime, paint the wood LOVE, with red acrylic paint.  It might take multiple coats.  

5.  Prepare more resin and pour a thin coat over the cured silver glitter.

6.  Slide the vellum into the resin.  Use your stir stick to press down the vellum and push out any bubbles.


7.  Carefully place your wood LOVE into the resin.  TIP:  Don't fill it too much because you don't want the wood LOVE to float.

8.  Let it all sit for 12 hours.  Remove bubbles as necessary with either a lighter or straw.

9.  Prepare more resin and pour it into the mold, making sure you have enough to completely cover the wood.

10.  Pop bubbles. Let it sit for a minimum of 12 hours.

11.  Unmold it.

That's it!  Now you have a beautiful coaster!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
