  • Resin
    • When deciding on which resin to use for your coasters, you need to keep in mind whether you want it just for cold cups or for hot as well.
      • If only for cold drinks, you can be flexible and use whatever brand you like:
      • If you want it to work for both hot and cold drinks, you need to look for a heat resistant resin, like these:
        • FX Poxy ~ According to the manufacturer, this one is heat resistant to 500° F.
        • Stone Coat

They both look cool! The bacon bits coaster actually has a texture to it. However it is level and a glass or cup is stable standing on it. You could add another layer of resin if you don’t want the texture.

The strips actually had grease rise up through the resin. I could actually wipe it up. In the future, I would either dry it more, wipe it with a wet wipe, or dehydrate it. I suspect the heat of the resin curing may have caused some of the grease to work itself out.

All in all, I think the coasters look pretty cool!
