FX Poxy: http://amzn.to/2AF3Pkk ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.
Here is the video tutorial so you can see exactly how I made it:
1. I dug through my scrapbook paper stash and pulled out these two. I’m going for a vintage-y look.
2. I mixed one ounce of resin.
3. I added some red resin pigment to the resin and mixed it up.
4. I poured the mixture into the mold.
5. I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it sit a minimum of 12 hours.
6. Once cured, I removed it from the mold.
Now we have a red disc!
7. I cut a small rectangle out of the music note paper, for the stem.
8. I cut out a triangle, for the tree.
9. I brushed Mod Podge onto the whole face of the coaster.
10. I brushed Mod Podge onto the back of the stem.
11. I put the stem onto the coaster and brushed Mod Podge over it.
12. I brushed Mod Podge on the back of the triangle.
13. I laid it down on the coaster.
14. I put a little Mod Podge onto my finger and rubbed it over the tree and the stem. That is to rub out any bubbles.
15. I brushed more Mod Podge over everything. I made sure to brush it from every angle, making sure to get all the edges of the paper.
16. I took little seed beads and added them to the wet Mod Podge.
17. I took bugle beads and created a little star at the top.
18. When everything completely dried, I mixed more resin and poured it over the coaster. I used my stir stick to make sure it went to the edges.
19. I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it sit a minimum of 12 hours.
That’s it!!! Now you have a new vintage style coaster!
