  • Resin
    • When deciding on which resin to use for your coasters, you need to keep in mind whether you want it just for cold cups or for hot as well.
      • If only for cold drinks, you can be flexible and use whatever brand you like:
      • If you want it to work for both hot and cold drinks, you need to look for a heat resistant resin, like these:
        • FX Poxy ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500° F.
        • Stone Coat

Directions:

  1. Paint the wood hearts silver and pink. It will take at least two coats.
  2. Once dry, use packing tape and tape it to the back of the hearts. Make sure there is a good seal with the heart and the tape, so the resin will not seep out.  
  3. Mix half an ounce of resin with fine red glitter. Using your stir stick, drip it into the openings of the hearts.
  4. Once full, take your lighter and pop the bubbles.  
  5. Allow the resin to cure a minimum of 12 hours.
  6. Once cured, you can remove the tape off the back of the coasters.
  7. The tape I used did not leave any sticky residue. If yours does, you can either paint a thin coat of resin over it, or you can use clear nail polish or other clear sealer or varnish.
