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.


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





Directions:


1.  For this project, I am painting directly the coaster molds.


2.  I started painting very simple flowers.  


3.  Then I added the cactus needles.


4.  I painted the curbed stripes onto the mold.


5.  I painted small flowers with the same red/berry paint.


4.  I mixed four ounces of resin and mixed in a green pigment powder.




5.  I poured the resin into the molds.


6.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.


7.  I removed the coasters from the mold.


Here is the front.  The paint is now part of the resin and will not scratch off.




8.  I painted the backs the same as the fronts.  I first started painting the curved stripes.


9.  I painted the needles.


10.  I painted the flowers.


11.  Once it all dried, I mixed four more ounces of resin and carefully poured it onto the coasters.


12.  I popped the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.


13.  I drilled a small hole into each of the coasters.


14.  I added glue to the hole.


15.  I inserted the flowers.


That's how the look together.


16.  I added rock to a terra pot.


17.  I added my coasters.




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