  • 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 ones 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:

Directions for Free Form Resin Coasters (First Version)

I found this silicone hot pad and thought it would make a great base for a resin project… of course I thought coasters!

Step 1

Using leftover resin from other projects, I decided to make coasters. I had about an ounce and I had divided it and mixed different pigment colors into it.

One ounce of resin divided into two cups with pink and blue Pearl Ex pigment powder mixed in

Step 2

I poured the different colors on the silicone mat…the blue, the pink, the yellow.

Step 3

I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let them cure for a minimum of 12 hours.

Directions for Freeform Coasters (Second Version)

Step 1

I divided one ounce of resin into three cups. The first has pink pigment powder, the second blue microbeads and the third was left clear.

Step 2

I poured some of the microbeads, followed by the pink around it and then repeated. I finished it off with clear so the microbeads would not get covered by the pink.

I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let it cure for a minimum of 12 hours. It does not get any easier than that!
