Watercolor Ink Coasters

Make these watercolor coasters using resin

Supplies Needed

Alcohol Ink, colors of choice plus white

Silicon Mold

Heat Gun

Directions:

Mix your resin according to package directions.

Pour enough resin into your mold to cover the bottom, up to ¼ inch thick.ubbles will appear in the resin.

sing a heat gun, keeping it moving, run it over the resin to pop any bubbles.

Using your colored inks, start dropping a few drops throughout the resin.

For the watercolor effect, use your white alcohol ink and drop it over where you dropped your colored inks.

After a few moments, you will notice the colors starting to spread and mix together.

Allow to harden for 24 hours before removing from the mold.

Tips:

  • If a lip forms around the edge of coaster, use a piece of sandpaper to remove.

  • Without the white, the colors will not spread and melt into each other the same ways as they do when you add the white.
