What You Will Need

  • Unfinished Wood Coaster Set
  • Americana Chalky Finish Paint I used Everlasting White
  • Darice Foil Tape I used copper metallic
  • EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
  • Felt Pads
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Lighter

Instructions

  • Paint the coasters with a few coats of paint. I painted the top, bottom, and sides for a finished look. Allow to dry and cure completely before continuing. Add strips of tape to the coasters in whichever directions you choose.
  • Protect your work surface, then break out the two-part epoxy. Mix a 1:1 ratio and follow the mixing instruction exactly.
  • Raise the coasters by setting them on something to ensure they do not stick to the surface they are on. Pour the epoxy onto the coasters.
  • After you have spread your epoxy, pop any bubbles by running a lighter over the surface but DO NOT touch the surface with the flame.
  • Allow the epoxy to cure for 24 hours before touching the project.
  • Add felt pads to the bottom of each coaster to protect your table if desired.
  • Your coasters are ready to use!

Notes

A few notes on epoxy:
  • You need an exact 1-to-1 ratio so measure each part first in your disposable¬†measuring cups.
  • Protect your work surface and wear gloves to protect your hands. Have plenty of rags on hand as well.
  • Pour the two parts together and mix with¬†craft sticks. Again these are disposable.
  • Follow the mixing instructions exactly. So if it says mix for 2 full minutes do so.
  • When pouring, spread out as much as possible and be sure to get all areas even the corners.
