You will need:
Similar mold:
Alcohol Ink set:
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
This is the resin I used for this project:
FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.
Easy Cast:
Art Resin:
Clear Cast:


1.  I mixed about three ounces of resin.  I poured a small amount in the bottom.

2.  I popped the bubbles, with my lighter.

3.  I poured more resin and popped bubbles, until I have all three ounces in the mold.

4.  I then began dripping the alcohol ink onto the resin.  The key is to add the color and follow it with white and keep layering it as you go.  

5.  Once you have added the inks, you want to let it sit a minimum of 12 hours, to cure.  DO NOT use your lighter on it, to pop any bubbles.  Alcohol ink is flammable and you don’t want to set your masterpiece on fire!

6.  After 12 hours, remove the coaster from the mold.

Now you can admire the beautiful colors and how they blended!

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