You will need: Mold: Temporary tattoos: Pigment powders: Lighter: Wet Ones: Resin (use whatever resin brand you like): Easy Cast: Art Resin: Clear Cast: This is the resin I used for this project: FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F. Fast Cast (optional for white background): White pigment (optional to tint clear resin for background):


1. I found these temporary tattoos and I have my coaster mold.

2.  I mixed one ounce of resin and mixed in pigment powder.

3.  I poured the resin into the mold.  I did the same with other colors and let them all cure.

4.  Once cured, I removed them from the mold.

5.  I trimmed the tattoos I wanted to use.

6.  I removed the clear protective layer.

7.  I positioned the tattoos and wet the backs.

8.  I removed the backing.

And this is what it looks like, before the final coat.

9.  I poured resin over the top of all the coasters.

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

Here is the whole collection!
