Supplies You Will Need

  • 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 Wedding Coasters Video Tutorial so you can see exactly how I made them!


1.  Mix two ounces of resin and add some white pigment ink. The two ounces should be enough to create a base for both coasters.

2.  Pour into the mold.

3.  Pop bubbles. I typically use a lighter, but it can leave a smokey look on the white coaster. So I used a straw and blew on the resin and that pops the bubbles. It takes longer, but it works. Let it cure a minimum of 12 hours.

4.  Print out the words Mr and Mrs onto transparency film and cut them out with a circle cutter.

5.  Prepare two more ounces of resin and pour it into each cavity – on top of the white. I popped the bubbles and then slid the transparency film into the resin.

6.  Use a stir stick, press down the transparency film, make sure to press all the bubbles out from under it.
