I hope you all are safe and sound. It’s that time again where you are supposed to be inside your homes in order to stay safe.
So here I am with another creative idea for you to indulge in and to inculcate a new hobby to pass your time without sitting idle. Don’t have a mould at home but want to make beautiful coasters?? I’ve got you covered!
Today I will demonstrate how to make resin coasters without a silicone mould
For this, you need something from your kitchen. Get yourself with a lid that is flexible enough to turn and fold.
It should be something like this
ice cream sticks
measuring spoon or cup
clear resin and hardener
few drops of pink and purple paint
This is the most important step!!
Make sure to wear your gloves as the resin is very sticky and difficult to remove from the hands.
Use a measuring spoon or cup to pour the resin into a cup. I used a measuring spoon. The ratio should be 2:1 of the clear resin and hardener respectively. This means 2 spoons of the clear. resin and 1 spoon of the hardener.
Use an ice cream stick to mix it. Mix it for 2 minutes and then let it rest for a minute to obtain the best results.
After mixing divide it into three different cups equally.
Put gold flakes in one, pink paint in one, and purple in one of the cups.
Mix them well for a minute.
Pour the transparent with gold flakes in the centre and pink and purple on each of the sides.
Use an ice cream stick to create swirls
Use the butane torch to remove all the bubbles
leave it for a minimum of 12 hours.
Here are the final results …
