resin geode coaster

Creating gorgeous coasters to fit your home décor is just a few steps away with these amazing, re-usable Craft Smart Geode Coaster molds.
Step 1

Mix 50 mL of clear casting resin according to package directions. This will make enough resin for the open geode coaster.

Step 2

Split resin into three mixing cups and create the following:

  • A very small amount of white resin dye mixed with clear resin.
  • A very small amount of bright Gold and black powder mixed with clear resin (to get the antiqued Gold shown).
  • Clear resin
Step 3

Place mold on a protected, non-stick surface and sprinkle Gold glass glitter around the hole in the middle of the mold. Pour clear resin almost filling the mold.

Step 4

Pour antique Gold and then white resin mixtures around the outer edge of the mold.
TIP: As the resin cures, the resin mixtures will spread a bit toward the middle.

Step 5

Let the resin geode cure for 24 hours.

Step 6

Remove from mold and use a Gold paint pen to highlight the edges of the coaster. Tilting the chisel tip on its side and running it around the edges will help to achieve the small amount of Gold on the top of the coaster. Let paint dry completely.
