Supplies You Will Need To Make a Scarecrow Coaster

Directions on How to Make a Scarecrow Coaster:

Step 1: A little dusting

I used copper pigment powder and dusted the mold.

Dust silicone mold with copper pigment powder

Step 2: A little copper and gold  

I mixed one ounce of resin and mixed in copper and gold pigment powder. I am using a fast-curing resin, that cures white. You can use a clear drying resin and add pigments as well, but you need to adjust the color, to your liking.

Add gold pigment powder into resin

Step 3: Pour that resiny goodness!  

I poured it into the mold and let it cure. Because I used a resin that cures white, it will become much lighter!

Step 4: Now let’s see how to make a scarecrow face!

Once cured, I laid the button eyes on the coaster, for placement purposes and then painted the nose.
