Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:


1.  I mixed on ounce of resin.

2.  I mixed in black pigment.

3.  I poured the resin into the mold.

4.  I used my lighter to pop the bubbles.

5.  I let it cure for 12 hours, before moving to the next step.

6.  I pulled out some metallic ribbon I had on hand.

7.  I cut the ribbons into small, random sized pieces.

8.  I mixed one ounce of resin and poured it onto the black background.

9.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

10.  I placed the pieces into the resin.

11.  I used my stir stick to press the ribbon into the resin.

12.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

13.  I let it cure until I was sure the ribbons would no longer float.  Then, I mixed another ounce of resin and poured it onto the coaster.

14.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter.

15.  Once cured, I removed it from the mold.

That’s it!
