You will need:
Pigment powders:
Hot glue:
Two black buttons:
Black acrylic paint:
Orange/rust acrylic paint:
Liner brush:
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Easy Cast:
Art Resin:
Clear Cast:
This is the resin I used for this project:
***FX Poxy (clear): ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F and is UV resistant.
Fast Cast (optional for white background):


1.  I used copper pigment powder and dusted the mold.

2.  I mixed one ounce of resin and mixed in copper and gold pigment powder.  I am using a fast curing resin, that cures white.  You can use a clear drying resin and add pigments as well, but you need to adjust the color, to your liking.

3.  I poured it into the mold and let it cure.  Because I used a resin that cures white, it will become much lighter!

4.  Once cured, I laid the button eyes on the coaster, for placement purposes and then painted the nose.

5.  I painted the mouth.

6.  I glued on the eyes.

7.  I mixed one ounce of resin and poured it into the mold, popped the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

8.  Once cured, I pulled it out of the mold.  This is what the back looked like.

9.  Cut two identical triangles out of brown felt.

10.  Use a glue gun and put glue on the edge of the triangle.

11.  Cut small pieces of raffia.

12.  Glue the pieces to the corners of the hat.

13.  Glue the open edge together.

14.  Glue small pieces of orange rectangle felt.

15.  Glue on a piece of raffia.

16.  The hat is snug enough, but can still be removed.

That's it!  Look at that cute scarecrow!
