Directions:

**I used a smaller coaster mold than I typically use because the gem mold I had wasn't big enough for the larger mold.  Also, if you were to make a lot for a wedding or bridal shower,   using smaller molds will save you a bunch on resin costs.

1.  Using either a resin that cures white, or using a clear resin, with pigment to color it white, mix enough to create a thin layer at the bottom of the coaster molds.
2.  Pour it into the mold and use a lighter to pop the bubbles.  Allow it to cure at least 12 hours.
3.  Print out gold bands on transparency film.  I printed "Mr" and "Mrs" in the middle, but you don't have to.  You can do "his" and "hers", or their names, date of the wedding, or anything you want!
4.  Cut the transparency film, slightly smaller than the size of the coaster mold.
5.  Mix enough resin to cover the white and slide your transparency film into the resin.  Press it down and press out the bubbles from under the transparency film.  Pop the bubbles and allow it to cure at least 12 hours.
6.  While you have the clear resin, you can mix a small amount with fine silver glitter and pour it into the gem mold.  Pop bubbles and allow to cure.
7.  Once cured, you can remove them from the molds.  
8.  Using a rotary tool, I cut a "V" into the Mrs coaster and glued the gem into place to make it look like an engagement ring.

Once dry and cured, you have a fun set of wedding coasters!!!

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