- 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!
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.
I poured the different colors on the silicone mat…the blue, the pink, the yellow.
I used my lighter to pop the bubbles and let them cure for a minimum of 12 hours.
After the 12 hours, I peeled them off the mat and Viola! a free form resin coaster!
Directions for Freeform Coasters (Second Version)
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.
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!
Once cured, I peeled it off and I had another freeform resin coaster!
That’s it! I hope you give them a try!
