Resin Cupcake Coasters | DIY Projects| Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch | How To





Cupcakes are fun and brighten everyone's day, especially if they are colorful like these!





You will need:

Coaster mold:  http://amzn.to/2lJOjAc


Wood cutouts:  I found them at Michaels

Fine glitter:  Match it to your colors

Acrylic paint: The colors depend on what you want.
Chunky glitter:  Pick a fun background color


Here is the video tutorial:


Directions:
1.  Mix two ounces of resin, according to the package directions.
2.  Separate into two different cups (one ounce each).  Add desired glitter into each cup and pour into coaster mold.
3.  Pop bubbles with lighter and allow it to cure for at least 12 hours.
4.  While it is curing, you can paint your cupcakes, whatever color you want.  I used acrylic paints.  Figure it will take at least two coats.
5.  When the resin has cured and the paint has dried, use a small amount super glue to tack it to the resin.  Just a couple of small drops on the back of the cupcakes should do it.  Place them onto the resin and let it dry.
6.  Once dried, mix two more ounces of resin and pour it over the the cupcakes.  TIP:  Because there are voids between the wood and the resin, you will get more bubbles than usual.  Be vigilant and keep checking and popping bubbles, until they stop appearing.
7.  Allow to cure a minimum of 12 hours before unmolding.

That's it!  Pop those puppies out of the mold and you have fun coasters to brighten your decor and your day!

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