Unicorn Spit:  
Acrylic paint:
Paint pens:
Torch or lighter:
Cork shelf liner:
Glue (optional):
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.

Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:

1.  I drew a cheeseburger template.

2.  I cut it out and traced it onto the plywood.

3.  I cut it out.

4.  I sanded the edges.

5.  I drew the lines on the wood cut outs, so I could use them as a guide for painting.

6.  The first one I did was with the Unicorn Spit.  See video to find out how I mixed the colors and painted the burger.  I did the second one with acrylic paint.

7.  I used a skewer stick paint little sesame seeds on the bun.  For the seeds, I used acrylic paint.

8.  I used my paint pen to outline the burger.

Here is how they look so far.

9.  Once dry, I applied painters tape to the back.  

10.  I burnished it down, to make sure the tape is well stuck.

11.  I used my craft knife to trim off the excess tape.

12.  I mixed resin and poured it onto the coasters.  

13.  I used my stir stick to move the resin around.

14.  I made sure to get the edges too.

15.  I repeated with the other coaster.

16.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.

Here they are with the resin, but we’re not done!

17.  I used my craft knife to cut along the edge, so I could remove the tape.

18.  I used acrylic paint to paint the back of the coasters.  This is simply to make sure the raw wood never gets wet.

19.  I used glue, just on the edge to prevent future peeling.

20.  I put the coaster on a piece of cork shelf liner.

21.  I trimmed around to remove the excess cork.

Here they are all finished!
