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

1.  I gathered some toilet paper and food color for this project.  The food color is neon, but you can use primary colors too!

2.  I ripped small pieces of toilet paper.

3.  I broke out the food color.

4.  I started by dripping the food color directly onto the toilet paper.  I quickly realized it was pretty dark.

5.  I dipped a paintbrush in water and added it to the toilet paper piece.  It helped the food color move around and lighten it up.

6.  I moved onto the green and added food color directly to water.  It worked well, but it was all the same color and pretty pale.

7.  My solution was to drip some undiluted food color onto the wax paper.  I dipped my brush into the food color and then touched the light green toilet paper.  It gave me the different shades I was looking for!

8.  I repeated the process with the blue and pink food color.

9.  While working with the smaller pieces, I thought there was an opportunity for blending ripped 7 larger pieces of toilet paper.

10.  I added multiple colors to the toilet paper and let the 

11.  If the colors were too deep, I used a paper towel and pulled some of the color off.

12.  I set everything to dry and it dried pretty quickly.  I put them down on a paper towel.

13.  I peeled the larger ones off the wax paper as well.

14.  I mixed three ounces of resin and poured it into three of the coaster cavities.

15.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.

16.  I started adding the pieces into the resin.

17.  I pressed the pieces down with my stir stick.

18.  I kept going until I had everything covered.  Feel free to overlap.

19.  I repeated the process with the bigger pieces.

20.  I poured the remaining resin over the coasters.  However, I didn't feel like it was enough.

21.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

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

23.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.  Then, I let them cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

24.  Once cured, I removed the coaster from the mold.

That's it!  Now you have colorful coasters made with resin and toilet paper!

If you look closely, where the were overlapped, you can see the one underneath and you can see different colors emerging.
