 EnviroTex Lite® is the perfect way to finish off coasters.

These are simple wooden coasters that I created with my Faux Quilting Stamps.  Below are instructions for applying the EnviroTex Lite®.  You can find complete instructions on how to create the monogrammed coasters on my blog.

Tape around the edges of the coaster (to prevent the resin from dripping).  Lay out some wax paper, then place the coaster on something  to elevate it.

Mix EnviroTex Lite® as directed on the package.  Measure equal parts resin and hardener in 2 separate cups.

Pour the hardener into the resin and mix thoroughly for 2 minutes.

Use the stir stick to bring the resin to the edges, (the resin is self leveling).  Watch for any bubbles to rise and blow lightly to disperse them.  Let dry undistributed for 12 hours, and then peel the tape away.

Trim resin away from the edges if needed.  Let cure for 72 hours.
