Cotton Ball Coaster DIY | Another Coaster Friday | Craft Klatch

I thought it would be fun to try adding cotton balls to resin, to make coasters.  Here’s is a quickie video to show you how it turned out and exactly how I made it:

You will need:
Cotton balls:
Resin (use whatever resin brand you like):
Easy Cast:
Art Resin:
Clear Cast:
FX Epoxy: (this is the one I used)


1.  Get out your mold, your cottonballs and your resin!

2.  I mixed two ounces of resin and poured most of it into the mold.

3. I used my lighter to pop any bubbles.

4.  I began to separate the cotton ball – just pull it apart.

5.  Then, I began adding the cotton balls to the resin and pressing them in with my stir stick.

6.  I poured any excess or remaining resin into the mold.

7.  Then I mixed another ounce or so of resin and added it on top as well.

8.  I popped all of the bubbles, using my lighter and let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

9.  Once cured, I removed it from the mold and viola!  It kind of looks like a cloud or the moon!

If you enjoyed that coaster, you might enjoy this one too!

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