Time for a spooky Halloween coaster!  It's a Haunted House Coaster!  I used stickers to make this project.  The house was actually a paper sticker.  Because it was a layered sticker, it is almost impossible to seal it, so I didn't.  I figured if the paper areas became blotchy, it would add to the character of the old house.  


You will need:
-  Coaster mold:  http://amzn.to/2e2Du81
-  Stickers:  http://amzn.to/2flbzSp
-  Chunky black glitter:  http://amzn.to/2dR2uf8
-  Fine silver glitter:  http://amzn.to/2fl9yWx
-  Transparent blue pigment:  http://amzn.to/2e2CwIR
-  Transparent purple pigment:  http://amzn.to/2dR69JE
-  Green acrylic paint in different shades


Here is the video tutorial:




Directions:
1.  Mix one ounce of resin, according to the package directions.  Add a little of the transparent purple pigment and a little of the transparent blue pigment.
2.  Mix in a little chunky black glitter and a little silver glitter.
3.  Pour into the coaster mold.
4.  Pop bubbles with your lighter and allow it to sit a minimum of 12 hours.
5.  Take the haunted house sticker and trip the corners, so it fits into the mold.
6.  Stick it down.
7.  Add the moon partially behind it.  I added glow paint to the moon, but that is completely optional.
8.  With a thin brush, brush some grass blades at the bottom, so the house doesn't look like it's floating in space.
9.  Once dry, mix one ounce of resin.  Drip it slowly over the paper house and let it soak in.  Pour the remainder slowly over everything. 
10.  Slide the ghost in, partially behind the house and place the tombstone in front of the house.
11.  Pop bubbles with your lighter.  You will get A LOT of bubbles, so be sure to stay on it.
12.  Allow to cure for 12 hours.
13.  Come back and paint another layer of grass, this time covering the bottom of the house and the tombstone.
14.  Once dry, pour one more ounce of resin over all of it.
15.  Pop bubbles and allow to cure!

I happened to put it in the stand and put a light behind it.  You can see how I made the lighted base here:   


That is it!  Happy Halloween and remember:
Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
