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  quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:







Directions:
1.  I found these super cute erasers at the party store.



2.  I mixed two ounces of resin and split them into two cups.

3.  I poured the clear cup into one of the cavities in the mold.

4.  I added a small amount of orange pigment to the second cup.

5.  I mixed it really well.

6.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.

7.  I began adding the erasers.

8.  I then poured the orange into the mold.

9.  I popped the bubbles with the lighter.

10.  I began adding the erasers to the resin.  Be careful because you don't want to have to move any in the orange resin around.


11.  I quickly popped the bubbles.  Don't stay in one place too long, you don't want to melt the erasers.  I let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

12.  I mixed two more ounces of resin and poured it over the coasters.

13.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let them sit for a minimum of 12 hours.

14.  When cured, I removed them from their mold.

Now I have a couple of cute and festive resin coasters!

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