Create colorful resin fire coasters with markers, isoprophyl alcohol, and a lighter then coat with EnviroTex Lite® Pour On High Gloss Finish.
Hey Resin Crafters! Amber Oliver here with another great resin craft! This project is a recreation of a craft I did last year that was a bit of a #DIYfail. I created beautiful coasters with a neat method I’ll explain below – but they didn’t last because of the spray sealant I used. This time around, I used EnviroTex Lite® Pour On High Gloss Finish to ensure my creations wouldn’t be ruined by drink condensation!
SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR RESIN FIRE COASTERS:
- EnviroTex Lite® Pour On High Gloss Finish
- Small Tiles
- Felt or fabric for backing
- Isopropyl alcohol
- Mixing Cups
- Stir Sticks
Step 4: Repeat until you have the desired number of “coasters”.
Step 5: Now you are ready for the Envirotex Lite Pour On. (You’ll want to setup in a cardboard box for easy disposal.) This is a multi-step process so don’t start mixing until you are ready to do the whole process from beginning to end!
Start by mixing EQUAL parts of the Hardener and the Resin. Stir for two minutes (be sure to scrape the bottoms and sides) then pour from the first cup into a second and mix with a new stir stick for another minute. Once it’s ready, pour directly onto your tiles! I put mine onto small mixing cups to allow the extra resin to drip off.
Step 7: After about 20 minutes you’ll see bubbles appear on the surface of the resin – you can use a butane torch to pop these or simply breathe on it like I did! It’s the CO2 in your breath that releases the bubbles – not the heat!
