I enjoy finding new ways to make coasters as they make excellent gifts. Today I am showing how to make a personalized monogrammed resin coaster.
- Envirotex Lite®
- Tissue paper, 8 1/2" x 11"
- Craft brush
- Painters tape
- Freezer paper, 8 1/2" x 11"
- Mixing cups, 4
- Stir sticks
- Craft sheet or plastic for your work surface
Iron tissue paper onto the freezer paper. Find a decorative font you like for your monogram letter, I used Duetica Mandolyn, you will have to determine the best size and print it out onto tissue paper. Peel the tissue paper from the freezer paper and trim it to fit the tile. Apply the tissue paper to the tile with the Ultra-Seal™, let it dry completely. Apply a second coat of Ultra-Seal™ and then, let it dry completely.
Adhere, painters tape to the back side of the tile.
Place the tile onto 2 of the cups,
Measure out equal parts of the resin and hardener, stir for two minutes.
Pour into a second cup and stir for another minute.
Pour the resin slowly onto the tile...use a craft brush if needed to spread the resin out to the edges. Use a craft stick to remove any drips around the edges if needed. To remove any air bubbles that may rise to the surface, use a lighter. Let dry for 24 hours, Remove the painters tape from the back of the tile.
