Directions:

1.  Paint the wood pieces. I did one in black and one in green. Once they dry, follow up with a varnish to seal them.

2.  When everything has dried, apply packing tape to the backs of the roses.

3.  Use a stir stick to burnish it. You want to make sure the tape has made strong contact with the wood, so no resin seeps through.

4.  Mix two ounces of resin (which was WAY more than needed). Mix in the fine glitter.

5.  Drip the resin into the open areas of the roses.

6.  Use a lighter to pop any bubbles. Remember the roses are made of wood, so you don’t want to linger too long in one place. Go quickly over the resin areas and let them cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

7.  Once cured, remove the tape.

That’s it!  Now you have beautiful rose coasters!
