Resin Marbled Coaster



The other day I showed a great way to get a marbled effect by adding Alcohol Inks to EnviroTex Lite®.   


Today my project is, again, with alcohol inks and just a bit of Iridescent Powder...I love the result!


Materials:
EasyCast®
Alcohol Ink: Denim
Iridescent Powder, Gold
Mixing cups
Stir sticks
Coaster mold
Toothpick
Lighter
Plastic to cover work surface

Instructions:
 Measure equal amounts of the EasyCast® resin and hardener into mixing cup.  Mix for 2 minutes...

and then, pour into a second mixing cup and stir for 1 minute.  Add a drop or two of white pigment.  Spray mold with mold release.

Pour the resin into the mold to about 1/4".  Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that may rise to the top.  Set aside for 12 hours.

Mix EasyCast® as described above and pour into the mold.

Add a couple drops of alcohol ink...

and then, a bit of iridescent powder.

Pull the colors through the resin with a toothpick...

until you get the look you want, knowing that is may move a bit while it drys.  Use a lighter to remove any air bubbles that may rise to the top.  Set aside for 24 hours.

Remove from the mold.
