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


1.  I mixed my resin, according to the package directions.

2.  I separated the resin into five different cups.

3.  I mixed fine glitter into each of the cups.  I used a silver, gold, red, white and blue.

4.  I mixed in the glitter and I started with the red, white and blue coaster.  I used the blue resin and glitter mixture and poured it around the outer rim of the mold.

5.  I then poured the white inside the blue.

6.  I then poured the red into the middle of the coaster.

7.  Working on the red and silver coaster, I poured in the silver.

8.  I poured the gold into the middle.

9.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles. 

10.  I used my Cricut to cut out the fireworks image.

11.  I applied the Cricut vinyl to the coaster.

12.  I burnished it down, to make sure the vinyl stuck to the resin.

13.  I remove the transfer tape and burnished it down again.

14.  I used my Mod Podge to seal the vinyl, so when I add the black paint, it would not seep under.

15.  Once dry, I painted over the whole thing with black acrylic paint – 2 coats.

16.  Once dry, I carefully removed the vinyl…

…and it exposed the beautiful glitter beneath!

17.  Here is how it looks so far!  Time to shine it up with a layer of resin!

18.  I mixed more resin and carefully poured it over the coasters, making sure it didn’t run over the edges.

19.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let them cure minimum of 12 hours before handling them.

20.  Here is the red, white and blue, with just a hint of the blue on the tips of the fireworks burst.

Here is the silver and gold.

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