Are you looking for Father's Day gift ideas?  How about a Beer and Fishing Coaster?  You can personalize it with Dad's favorite beer!



You will need:

-  Coaster mold
-  Resin (I used Easy Cast)
-  7 Beer caps
-  2 Fishing hooks


Here is the video tutorial:

Directions:
1.  Prepare your resin, according to the package directions (I used approximately 3 ounces).
2.  Put your beer caps into it and make sure they are well coated.
3.  Pour a enough resin into the mold to cover the bottom.
4.  Take a lighter and pop any bubbles.
5.  Scoop out the beer caps and put them into the mold.
6.  Add fish hooks to the resin.
TIP:  If one of the bottle caps floats, there is likely an air bubble stuck underneath it.  With your stir stick, pick up a corner and a bubble should come out.
7.  Add remaining resin.
8.  Use lighter to pop bubbles.
9.  Let it sit a minimum of 12 hours before unmolding.

That's it!  Now you have a great gift for the man in your life!!

Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Crafting and stay safe!
