I created a vampire coaster using acrylic paint.  I wish I had real artistic painting ability because how fun would it be to use the coasters as an actual canvas?

I think he looks a little like Eddie Munster!

You will need:

–  Coaster mold
–  Resin – I used Easy Cast – Envirotex Lite would work too!  For more info on either, go to www.eti-usa.com
–  Black, red and white acrylic paint
–  2 Googly eyes
–  Resin pigments – or something to color your resin

Here are some of the items available at Amazon, incase you wanted to give them a try:

Here is the video tutorial:

1.  Prepare your resin, according to the package directions.  Make enough to cover the bottom of the mold.
2.  Color as you like.  I mixed pearl pigment dye, a couple drops of white and two drops of blue.  Experiment until you get the color you want.
3.  Pour into mold and let it cure.
4.  Use a pen or pencil to draw and outline of Dracula’s hair.
5.  Using black acrylic paint, paint the hair, the eyebrows, a frown, and the nose.  The hair and eyebrows will take at least two coats.  Allow to dry.
6.  Glue the eyes into place.  I used a fast drying super glue.
7.  Using white acrylic paint, paint the fangs.
8.  Using red acrylic paint, paint a drop of blood.
9.  Allow everything to dry!
10.  Prepare more resin and pour over everything.
11.  Allow to cure.

Pop it out and you will have a cute vampire!  That’s it!  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting and Happy Halloween!  I’ll have another Halloween coaster next week!
