1. I found these temporary tattoos and I have my coaster mold.

2.  I mixed one ounce of resin and mixed in pigment powder.

3.  I poured the resin into the mold.  I did the same with other colors and let them all cure.

4.  Once cured, I removed them from the mold.

5.  I trimmed the tattoos I wanted to use.

6.  I removed the clear protective layer.

7.  I positioned the tattoos and wet the backs.

8.  I removed the backing.

And this is what it looks like, before the final coat.

9.  I poured resin over the top of all the coasters.

10.  I popped the bubbles with my lighter and let them cure a minimum of 12 hours.

Here is the whole collection!

That’s it! Thanks for stopping by! Remember: Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
