You will need:

  • 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 you want it to work for both hot and cold drinks, you need to look for a heat resistant resin, like these:

Directions:

1.  I mixed an ounce of resin with a yellow gold pigment powder.


2.  I also added some microbeads, in gold.


3.  I poured it onto the silicone mat.  This allows for a freeform style.


4.  I let it spread out and popped the bubbles with a lighter and let it cure 12 hours.


5.  I printed bees onto transparency film.  I have the transparency laying on a white sheet of paper, so you can see them.


6.  I mixed one ounce of resin and spread part of it over the gold resin.


7.  I cut out the bees out and slid them into the resin.

8.  I pressed them down with my stir stick.


9.  I popped the bubbles with the lighter.


10.  I poured the remainder of resin on the coaster.


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


13.  I then peeled it off of the silicone mat.


You can see the honeycomb shape through the resin, making it look like a honeycomb.


The back has a textured surface.


It’s definitely fun and easy coaster to try!  I hope you like it!
