Pokemon Go has brought Pokemon back to the attention of the mainstream.  However, a couple of my 20 year old nephews gave me a lesson that it never went away.  This week we are doing Pokemon coasters!


You will need:
-  Coaster mold:  http://amzn.to/2bxtpNb
-  Easy Cast Resin (clear):  http://amzn.to/2b0F9el
-  Fast Cast Resin (white):  http://amzn.to/2bxuQLf
-  White pigment (optional): http://amzn.to/2bxv3hC
-  Transparency film (laser):  http://amzn.to/2b0GbXQ
-  Transparency film (inkjet):  http://amzn.to/2b0FldF
-  Circle cutter:  http://amzn.to/2bqoy4m


Here is the video tutorial:



Directions:
1.  Prepare the Easy Cast, according to the package directions.  You need approximately 1/2 ounce of the resin, per coaster.
2.  Pour it into each cavity.  Pop the bubbles with your lighter and allow it cure at least 12 hours.
3.  Print Pokeballs onto your transparency film.  It will work with a laser printer, or an inkjet printer, just make sure you have the one that works with your printer.
4.  Cut them out.  You want them to be just under four inches in diameter.  
5.  Mix approximately 1/2 ounce of the Easy Cast and pour it into each cavity.  
6.  Slide the Pokeball images in and press them down with your stir stick, making sure to press out all the bubbles.  Pop bubbles with lighter.
7.  Once cured, mix one ounce of resin per coaster.  I used the Fast Cast for this one, but you can use the Easy Cast with the white pigment.  I used the Fast Cast because it cures white and is fast.
8.  Pour the resin into the molds and allow to cure.
9.  Print out your Pokemon characters onto your transparency film.  I chose Pikachu, Squirtle and Bulbasaur.
10. Cut them out to under four inches in diameter.
11.  Mix one ounce of resin, per coaster and pour it into the cavities.
12.  Slide in the images.  Press down with the stir stick and pop the bubbles.

That's it!  Now you have Pokemon coasters!  It looks like a Pokeball on one side and the character on the other side.

Thanks for stopping by!

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