Directions:

2.  Mix blue glitter into the resin - mix well and pour into coaster mold.
3.  Allow to cure for at least 12 hours before moving onto the next step.
4.  Print a picture of Elvis, to fit the size of your coaster.  Cut out.  
5.  With a black permanent marker, color the edge of the cut out and allow to dry.
6.  Using Mod Podge, paint some onto the back of the head and then paint some onto the entire coaster.
7.  Carefully place the picture onto the coaster and add Mod Podge on the front of the picture and the surrounding coaster.  Make sure all of the coaster has Mod Podge on it.  Allow to completely dry and repeat two more times.
8.  Once it has COMPLETELY dried, prepare more resin and pour over coaster.  Allow to cure and then you can unmold it!!

That's it!  Don't be cruel!  Thanks for stopping by!  Stay safe and Happy Crafting!

Hi my love Mona. Oh my goodness, I can't believe you made this for my mom.....lol It would be perfect, blue is her favorite color and Elvis is her all-time favorite entertainer. We visited Graceland about 15 years ago, I know she would like to go back, unfortunately she doesn't get around very well. Well, she is 82....I just hope I'm half as good when I get to that age. Thank you for sharing. Love ya' Patrici B
