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



Directions:


1.  Cut small pieces from a sea sponge and put them to the side.




2.  Mix 1.5 ounces of resin, according to the package directions.  Pour enough of the resin into one cavity of the mold, to cover the bottom.  


3.  Use your lighter to pop the bubbles.


4.  Put the pieces of sponge into the resin that is remaining in the cup.  Let the pieces soak up the resin.




5.  Place each individual piece into the resin in the mold.

6.  When you have them all placed, take your lighter and pop the bubbles.  You may want to go back a couple of more times, to make sure you get as many bubbles as possible.  Let it cure at a minimum of 4-8 hours.  You want to make sure the resin is cured enough so that when you add another layer, the sponge won't float.


7.  Mix an ounce or more of resin, depending on how much you need to level the coaster.  Pop the bubbles with your lighter and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.








The sponge took on a translucent quality, which I did not expect.  I think it has a very organic look to it.


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