Directions:

1.  I mixed six ounces of resin and broke it into three cups.

2.  First I used coarse kosher salt and mixed it in with the resin.


3.  Then poured it into the coaster mold.

 4.  Then I used the Himalayan pink salt and mixed it in with the resin.



5.  Then poured it into the coaster mold.

6.  Finally, I mixed in the sidewalk salt - the kind you throw on the sidewalk in the winder, so you don't break your neck on the ice!

7.  Then I poured that into the mold.

8.  I then broke out my lighter and popped the bubbles.   

9.  I let it cure a minimum of 12 hours before removing them from the mold.

That's it!

Thread Coaster DIY | Resin Crafts | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch

Today we are taking colorful string and/or embroidery thread, mixed with resin and turning it into coasters!



Here's a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:





The links below may contain affiliate links and I may receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.

You will need:
Thread scraps: https://amzn.to/2LBdDBq 
Embroidery floss:  https://amzn.to/2BXdysj
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Clear Cast:  http://amzn.to/2z4rxGw

1.  Mix one ounce of resin, per coaster.  I started with the thread coaster.


2.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

3.  I pre-cut pieces of thread.

 4.  Then I started dropping them into the resin.

5.  I kept adding and pressing the thread down with my stir stick.  



6.  Once they are completely covered with the resin, you can pop the bubbles with your lighter.  Be careful, if the thread is not covered, it might set on fire!  

7.  Then I did the same with the embroidery floss.  I started with the one ounce of resin and pressed the embroidery floss into the resin.

 8.  I mixed two more ounces of resin and carefully poured it over each of the coasters, popped the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.


9.  Once cured, you can unmold them and here they are!


That's it!  I hope you like them and give them a try!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!

Directions:


1.  I have this heart mold that I found online.

2.  I mixed some resin depending on how many you want to make, but you can start with an ounce or two.

3.  I mixed in some metallic pigment powder.

4.  I poured it into the mold cavities and took a lighter and popped the bubbles.  Then I let it sit to harden.  I made a second batch, and added red India ink instead of the pigment powder.


5.  I mixed more resin, separated it and added confetti to some of it and beads to the rest.

Here is the confetti I used.


6.  I poured it onto the already cured resin.



7.  Then I popped the bubbles with the lighter and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.


8.  Once cured, I removed them from the mold.


9.  I cut Mr and Mrs out of purple glitter vinyl and put it onto the paperweights.

That's it!  Now you have these beautiful resin paperweights and you can personalize them with different colors

I hope you enjoyed it and hope you found some inspiration in the project!
