Directions:

1.  I gathered my molds.  I used three different molds for this project.

2.  I used pigment powder and brushed it on the inside of the horn mold.  It can be a solid color, or a mix of colors.


3.  I did the same with the flower mold.


5.  I used a fast curing resin for this project, but you can use a clear resin and add white pigment.  By dusting the inside of the molds, with the pigment powder, the pigment powder becomes one with the resin.

TIP:  For the horns, I had them cure on a light angle, so they would have a little angle, when cured.


6.  Once cured, I removed all the parts from the molds.

Look how pretty that horn turned out!

7.  I glued the horns to the coasters.


I used a fast drying glue.

8.  I cut a face out of vinyl with my cutting machine, but you can also paint it on.

9.  I put on the faces.

So far, so good!

10.  I mixed two ounces of clear resin and poured it on the coasters.  This gives additional strength to the horn.

11.  I used my stir stick, to make sure it went to the edges.

12.  I popped the bubbles with the lighter and let them cure a minimum of 12 hours.

13.  I cut ears out of craft foam and glued them on with hot glue.

14.  I painted pink inner ears.

15.  I added glue to help make the attachment stronger and then sprinkled the glue with glitter.




 16.  I then added additional glue and put on a piece of the feather boa.


17.  I trimmed the excess.

18.  I glued on the flowers.
  
That's it!  Now you can use them as coasters, or as ring holders.




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