Alcohol Ink Resin Coaster DIY | Another Coaster Friday

Learn how to create an Alcohol Ink Resin Coaster!  It’s an easy resin craft tutorial!


Coaster mold:
Alcohol ink:
Pigment powders:
Wet Ones:
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Easy Cast:
Art Resin:
Clear Cast:
This is the resin I used for this project:
FX Poxy: ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500 degrees F.
Fast Cast (optional for white background):
White pigment (optional to tint clear resin for background):

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

1.  I brushed pigment powder on the mold.  That will allow the resin to cure and adhere to the pigment powder.

2.  I mixed one ounce of fast curing resin and poured it into the mold.  The fast curing resin should cure white, but sometimes it cures to an off-white.

3.  Once cured, I started adding alcohol inks.

4.  Once I had the ink on, I moved it around, to make sure the coaster was covered.

5.  I let the alcohol ink dry and then pulled it out of the mold.

6.  I then mixed more resin, it should take less than an ounce, and slowly poured it onto the coaster.

7.  I used my stir stick to make sure I got it to the edges.

8.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.  Then, I let it sit for a minimum of 12 hours before touching it.

That’s it!

Here is the back, which has the pigment powder permanently adhere to the resin.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
