Bee Honeycomb Coaster Video Tutorial
Here is a quick video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:
Bee Honeycomb Coaster Directions
I mixed an ounce of resin with a yellow/gold pigment powder.
I also added some gold micro-beads.
I poured the resin mix onto the silicone mat. This allows for a freeform style. I don’t really know if a bee honeycomb is freeform but I thought it would be more interesting.
I let the resin spread out and popped the bubbles with a lighter. Then, I let it cure for 12 hours.
I mixed one ounce of resin and spread part of it over the gold resin.
I cut out the bees and slid them into the resin.
I pressed them down with my stir stick.
I popped the bubbles with the lighter. Then, I poured the remainder of the resin on the coaster and popped the bubbles one more time and lt them cure a minimum of 12 hours.
I then peeled it off of the silicone mat.
You can see the bee honeycomb shape through the resin, making it look like an a honeycomb with bees in it!
It’s definitely fun and easy coaster to try! I hope you like it!
The back has an interesting textured surface.
