FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.


Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:






Directions:


1.  I mixed on ounce of resin.


2.  I mixed in black pigment.


3.  I poured the resin into the mold.




4.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.


5.  I let it cure for 12 hours, before moving to the next step.


6.  I pulled out some metallic ribbon I had on hand.


7.  I cut the ribbons into small, random sized pieces.


8.  I mixed one ounce of resin and poured it onto the black background.





9.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.


10.  I placed the pieces into the resin.


11.  I used my stir stick to press the ribbon into the resin.


12.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.


13.  I let it cure until I was sure the ribbons would no longer float.  Then, I mixed another ounce of resin and poured it onto the coaster.


14.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.


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


That's it!
