This is the resin I used for this project:

FX Poxy:  http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ 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:

Directions:



1.  I mixed an ounce and a half of resin.  

2.  I added chunky black glitter.

3.  Then, I added fine purple glitter.

4.  I mixed it all really well.

5.  I poured the mixture into the coaster mold.

6.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

7.  I removed the coaster from the mold.

I like the way it looks with the black and purple mix!

8.  I used my paint markers to draw on the face.

The black didn’t show up very well for the mouth…

…so I went over it with silver.

9.  Once the paint dried, I mixed one more ounce of resin and poured it over the coaster.

10.  I used my stir stick to help the resin to the edges.

11.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

12.  I traced around the coaster, onto a piece of paper.

13.  I drew a wing for the bat.

14.  I cut half of it out.

15.  I then folded the circle portion in half.  

16.  Then, I traced the wing onto the paper.  This allows me to get symmetrical wings.

17.  I cut it out.

18.  I traced it onto the craft foam.

19.  I cut it out with scissors.

20.  I added glue to the round part of the bat.

21.  I pressed in the resin piece.

22.  I cut a couple of triangles, for ears.

23.  I added a dab of glue and pressed them on to the foam.

That’s it!  There is my cute bat coaster!
