Directions on How to Make a Scarecrow Coaster:
Step 1: A little dusting
I used copper pigment powder and dusted the mold.
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.
I poured it into the mold and let it cure. Because I used a resin that cures white, it will become much lighter!
Once cured, I laid the button eyes on the coaster, for placement purposes and then painted the nose.
I painted the mouth.
Step 6: Button eyes
I glued on the eyes.
I mixed one ounce of resin and poured it into the mold, popped the bubbles, and let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours.
Once cured, I pulled it out of the mold. This is what the back looked like.
Cut two identical triangles out of brown felt.
Glue small pieces of orange rectangle felt.
Glue on a piece of raffia.
The hat is snug enough, but can still be removed.
