1. I used two molds for these coasters. The first is the regular coaster mold I use. The other is a donut mold, that I flipped over and used the inside cavity.
2. I mixed my resin. Figure approximately two and a half ounces. I used a resin that cures white and added pigment powder to give it a subtle color. You can use clear curing resin and tint the color as well.
3. I poured resin into two of the larger coaster cavities and some into two of the smaller cavities.
4. Once the resin cured, I removed the pieces from the molds.
5. I used a combination of a clear drying glue and hot glue to attach the smaller pieces to the larger pieces. The hot glue keeps everything in place, while the other glue dries.
6. I painted on the features, which included the beak, eyes, waddle and feet!
7. I used colored popsicle sticks and put glue on them. Again, I did clear drying glue and hot glue combo.
8. I pressed the turkey onto the glue.
I hope you give it a try for Thanksgiving!
