  • 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

Here is the Video Tutorial


1.  Prepare your resin, according to the package directions.

2.  Mix some small nails into the resin and pour into your mold.

3.  Add additional nails, of varying sizes.  You want to make sure you have enough resin to cover the nails and give you a flat surface.

4.  Allow to cure 12 hours.

5.  Add stickers.

6.  Prepare more resin – you just need enough to cover the stickers.

7.  Allow to cure for at least 12 hours before unmolding.

8.  Remember to take a lighter or a straw and run it over the resin, after you pour it, and that will get rid of the bubbles.  If you are using the straw, you have to blow into it.

9.  Unmold and you have a one of a kind gift for Father’s Day!
