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

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



Directions:


1.  I found these wood squares at the craft store.


2.  I used Unicorn Spit in five different colors.


3.  I put two colors at a time, on my paint brush and put it on the wood squares.  They blend beautifully!



4.  I used a paper towel to wipe off the excess,






5.  I put the coasters up on cups.  I mixed two ounces of resin and poured it on the coasters.

6.  I used a sponge brush to move the resin around the coaster and to have more control.

7.  Once I had it all covered, I used a lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

Now they look great and shiny!


8.  I did not to the back of the coasters, so I pulled out my cork shelf liner.


9.  I cut it to size.

10.  I peeled off the backing.

11.  I applied it to the back of the coasters.

12.  Rubbed it down.

That's it!  Now you have beautiful coasters that won't scratch your table.

Garbage to Gorgeous® Episode 24: Desk Makeover with Unicorn Spit! | Craft Klatch | Sponsored

Today I am going to transform and old school desk into a beach table using #UnicornSpit and #GlazeCoat!   Their website:  http://tryglazecoat.com

Here is a quick video tutorial:



Directions:

I found this desk a few years ago and wanted to give it a makeover.  

1.  I started out by taking off the top.

2.  Then I applied stripper.

3.  I made sure to get it everywhere and then let it sit, according to the directions.

4.  I scraped off the old finish.


5.  I cleaned it off with acetone.

6.  The inside had ink stains and I didn't want them to show, so I primed the inside.


7.  I then used the Weathered Daydream #UnicornSpit, watered down, on the top of the desk.  I brushed it on and then wiped it off.




8.  Once the primer dried, I used the Zia Teal on the inside of the desk.

9.  I used the Ning White on the exterior of the desk, wiped it off and let it dry.

The yellow of the wood showed through more than I would have liked.

10.  I used a lot of the white and just a little bit of the Weathered Daydream and painted it on the desk and lightly wiped it off - making sure to blend.



11.  Once everything dried, I taped off the top of the desk, to make sure the legs and inside were protected.  Then, I mixed the Glaze Coat for the top.   (FYI:  I sprayed the legs and inside with a sealer).

12.  I poured the Glaze Coat onto the top of the desk and spread it around.


13.  I used my torch to pop the bubbles.

14.  I found a small vase that fit well into the inkwell and added a silk flower.

This is how it looks all done!  It has a fun weathered, beachy feel to it!


The inside has a fun pop of color!



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