Transparency film:
 Mixing cups:
Stir sticks:

This is the resin I used for this project:
FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.

Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:

1.  I used a copper pigment powder and dusted the recessed areas.  I wanted it to look like it was browned in a toaster, so I only did the areas that will be raised.  However, on the mold, that is the recessed areas. 

2.  I mixed three ounces of resin.

3.  I added colors to make it look like a waffle color.  I did that  by mixing gold and copper pigment powder.  I also added a white opaque pigment and made sure to mix it really well.

4.  I poured it into the mold.

5.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

6.  Once cured, I removed it from the mold.

You can see the areas where I dusted the copper onto the mold.

You could be finished right now.  It would work as a coaster or even a fun soap dish!  But I wanted to take it a step further!

7.  I found a royalty free image of a melting pad of butter and printed it out on transparency film.

8.  I cut it out and made sure I did not leave a border.

9.  I painted the backside with white acrylic paint.  Be sure to do two coats.

After the first coat, it is streaky.

After the second coat, it's nice and solid.

10.  I mixed approximately two ounces of resin.

11.  I mixed a little amber pigment into the resin.  

 12.  I added just a touch of brown in an attempt to give it the color of maple syrup.

13.  Once mixed, I dipped the butter into the resin.  I wanted to make sure it was all covered, so it was protected and would stick to the waffle.  I am working on parchment paper because I can go more freeform and the cured resin will pull off of it.

14.  I then poured the remaining resin over the butter and waffle.

15.  I wanted it to look natural, so I let it run over the sides.

16.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.

17.  I peeled the resin off of the parchment paper.

There it is!  Now I have a fun waffle coaster!

Here is the back.

Perfect for your morning coffee, tea, or whatever you might drink for breakfast!
