This is the resin I used for this project:

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

Here is a quick video, so you can see exactly how I made them:



Directions:

1.  For this project, I am painting directly the coaster molds.

2.  I started painting very simple flowers.  

3.  Then I added the cactus needles.

4.  I painted the curbed stripes onto the mold.

5.  I painted small flowers with the same red/berry paint.

4.  I mixed four ounces of resin and mixed in a green pigment powder.


5.  I poured the resin into the molds.

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

7.  I removed the coasters from the mold.

Here is the front.  The paint is now part of the resin and will not scratch off.


8.  I painted the backs the same as the fronts.  I first started painting the curved stripes.

9.  I painted the needles.

10.  I painted the flowers.

11.  Once it all dried, I mixed four more ounces of resin and carefully poured it onto the coasters.

12.  I popped the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

13.  I drilled a small hole into each of the coasters.

14.  I added glue to the hole.

15.  I inserted the flowers.

That's how the look together.

16.  I added rock to a terra pot.

17.  I added my coasters.


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