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



Directions:
1.  I mixed one ounce of fast curing resin, which cures white.  I didn't want a stark white background, so I mixed in some copper pigment powder.


2.  I poured it into the mold.  The resin cures fast, so you need to move quick!

3.  Once cured, you can remove the coaster from the mold.

4.  I removed it from the mold and laid it on a flat surface.

5.  I tore up some newspaper.


6.  I painted the Mod Podge onto the coaster.

7.  I laid the newspaper onto the coaster.

8.  I painted Mod Podge on the newspaper pieces, as I put them on.

9.  I repeated this until I covered the hole face of the coaster.



10.  Once all of the Mod Podge has dried, I stenciled a heart onto it, with acrylic paint.




11.  I mixed an ounce of clear resin and slowly poured it over the coaster.

12.  I helped it get to the edges.

13.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours, before handling.

That's it!  Here it is finished!

Here is the back!
