DIY Beer and Fishing Coaster Father’s Day Gift Idea – Another Coaster Friday

Are you looking for Father’s Day gift ideas?  How about a Beer and Fishing Coaster?  You can personalize it with Dad’s favorite beer!

Supplies You Will Need to Make the Beer and Fishing Coaster

  • 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

1.  Prepare your resin, according to the package directions (I used approximately 3 ounces).

2.  Put your beer caps into it and make sure they are well coated.

3.  Pour a enough resin into the mold to cover the bottom.

4.  Take a lighter and pop any bubbles.

5.  Scoop out the beer caps and put them into the mold.

6.  Add fish hooks to the resin.

TIP:  If one of the bottle caps floats, there is likely an air bubble stuck underneath it.  With your stir stick, pick up a corner and a bubble should come out.

7.  Add remaining resin.

8.  Use lighter to pop bubbles.

9.  Let it sit a minimum of 12 hours before unmolding.

That’s it!  Now you have a great gift for the beer drinking fisherman in your life!!

  2. It’s better to pour a thin layer of resin into mold first and then add the caps. Wait til the resin is about halfway cured and then pour another layer and with that layer if you want to add some color go ahead and mix it with the resin but it’s best to use a light color like yellow, sky blue, etc.
