resin flower coaster

Step-up your resin creations with a unique dimensional resin flower.
Step 1

Mix 80 mL of clear casting resin according to package directions.

Step 2

Split resin evenly into four cups. You will add mix-ins to three cups, but reserve one for clear resin only.

Step 3

In the first resin cup, mix a small amount of fine, Gold glitter.

Step 4

In the second resin cup, mix a small amount of chunky Gold glitter. This mixture should contain just enough resin to make the glitter stick together.

Step 5

In the third resin cup, mix a small amount of white and pink resin dye.

Step 6

Place an open piping bag, tip end closed, into a cup and pour in pink resin mixture. Set aside.

Step 7

Place mold on a protected surface, like parchment paper, and pour the fine, Gold glitter mixture into round coaster to fill the lip of the coaster.

Step 8

Add thick, chunky glitter mix to the middle of the mold to create the flower middle. By limiting the amount of resin in this mixture, it helps to keep the glitter from moving too much.

Step 9

Add clear resin to almost fill the mold. Use a heat gun to eliminate any bubbles.

Step 10

For the flower technique to work, you must wait until the resin in the piping bag is warm (just warm, not hot). When the resin is warm, cut a small hole in the tip of the piping bag. Test the flow on a paper towel (or napkin). The resin should not continue to drip when you have released pressure on the bag.

Step 11

Pipe pink resin mixture to create scallops or petals. Start from the middle and work your way to the outside, filling the coaster with petals. The inside of the petals should remain open.

Step 12

Use the heat gun to push the resin petals from outside of the coaster toward the middle. Go around the entire circle. This will help to create the flow for the wispy petal look.

Step 13

Let resin cure for 12-24 hours before removing from the mold.
TIP: This can be a bit of a tricky technique to master, so don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t turn out perfectly the first time!
