Directions:

1.  I painted the wood pieces.  I did one in black and one in green.  Once they dry, you can follow up with a varnish to seal them.


2.  When everything has dried, apply packing tape to the backs of the roses.

3.  Use your stir stick to burnish it.  You want to make sure the tape has made strong contact with the wood, so no resin seeps through.

4.  I mixed two ounces of resin, which was WAY more than I needed.  I mixed in fine red glitter.

5.  I dripped the resin into the open areas of the roses.

6.  I used my lighter to pop any bubbles.  Remember the roses are made of wood, so you don't want to linger too long in one place.  Go quickly over the resin areas and let them cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

7.  Once cured, remove the tape.

That's it!  Now you have beautiful rose coasters!


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