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.



Directions:

1.  I found bugs some flat-ish fake bugs.  Because they are flat,  they will keep the coaster from being too big.

2.  I trimmed the bugs, to fit into the coaster.

3.  I mixed two ounces of resin and poured them into the mold.

4.  I began adding the bugs.


5.  I moved the bugs around and used my stir stick to drip the resin over the bugs.

6.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

7.  I mixed enough resin to cover the bugs.  Depending on your bugs, it might be two to three ounces.

8.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let the resin cure.

9.  Once cured, I removed the coasters from the mold.

That's it!  Now you have some fun and creepy bug coasters!

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