Directions:

1.  I mixed one ounce of resin.

2.  I mixed a little bit of copper pigment powder into the resin.  

3.  Then, I added fine copper glitter and mixed it really well.


4.  I poured it into the coaster mold.

5.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

6.  I painted the features onto the coaster, which included:


The eyes...

The snout...

The nose...

The pupils...

The eyelids...

The mouth...

7.  I mixed one ounce of resin and poured it onto the coaster.

You can help move the resin to the edges.

8.  I used my lighter, to pop the bubbles.

9.  I drilled holes into the resin, using my rotary tool.

10.  I cut pieces of pipe cleaners to length.

11.  I cut shorter pieces of the pipe cleaners and wrapped them around the longer pieces.

12.  I added glue to the holes and inserted the pipe cleaners.

13.  I cut pieces of brown felt into ears.  

14.  I added glue to the felt and put the onto the reindeer head.

15.  I sprinkled copper glitter onto the glue areas and shook off the excess.

That's it!  Now you have a cute reindeer coaster!
