I love the fall leaves and the vibrant colors. In an attempt preserve nature’s beauty, I decided to make fall leaf coasters.

FX Poxy: http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.
*Originally, I used Mod Podge and I’m not sure why it became cloudy, but it did. I have since been using the Super Gloss Mod Podge and it starts out and dries much clearer! Next time I will seal the leaves with the Mod Podge and pour a first resin layer and either lay the leaf in the wet resin, just glue a few dots on the back to tack it.
