Wood and Resin Coasters by Lisa Fonseca

Hey friends, it’s Lisa and today I’m sharing two cute coasters I created using the new Color Pour Resin Wood coasters.

For this project, I thought I’d go pastel and glittery… who would’ve guessed? πŸ™‚ To be honest, I wanted to add some color to the resin… and I did. The result wasn’t really what I wanted… still need to get better at that and practice some more, haha! πŸ™‚ So to start, I painted a small part of the wood coasters with mint and pink acrylics. I like this dipped style, so I tried to recreate that here. I love how it turned out.

For my previous resin projects, I always used the resin for which you need to combine the two components and that air-dries. For this project, I used the UV resin for the first time. With this resin, no need to mix components first, you can use it as is, and the best part is that it dries underneath the UV light, so your project is ready to use in just a few minutes.

I wanted to use some crushed glass at the bottom of my coasters. So to start, I put some of the shattered glass on my wood coaster, drizzled some resin on top, and then used the UV light on top for two minutes to make sure the pieces wouldn’t go anywhere later. Then I put some of the resin in a little container, added glitter, and poured it into the coasters. I added some gold stars on top and then I put the coasters under the UV light for 5 minutes.

That’s already it guys… πŸ™‚ It’s really that fast and the result is really pretty!

You can’t really see the crushed glass pieces in the final result but that doesn’t matter, the coasters look pretty anyways. For an adorable Valentine’s Day look, I added some Jolee’s dimensional glitter heart stickers.

That’s it guys! I hope you had some fun reading through the blog post and are inspired to try some wood coasters using the Color Pour Resin. Thanks so much for stopping by and see you soon! πŸ™‚
