Directions:

1.  I found some temporary tattoos with an old world creepiness to them.

2.  I mixed two ounces of resin.  I used a resin that cures white and is a quick curing resin.  You can use regular clear resin and add color instead.  Because the resin I used cures white, I had to take that into consideration when adding color.  

3.  Once mixed, I poured the resin into the mold.


4.  Once cured, I cut out the tattoos.

5.  I laid them out on the coasters, for spacing purposes.

6.  I peeled off the clear backing and placed the tattoo face down.


7.  I used a wet one - you can also use a damp paper towel.

8.  I carefully peeled it up.


9.  I painted on dots for additional embellishment.

10.  I mixed two ounces of resin and poured it onto the coasters.

11.  I popped the bubbles, with my lighter and let it cure.

12.  Once cured, I removed it from the mold.

That's it!  Now you have some cool, but creepy tattoo coasters!

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