Who doesn’t love the beach? The ocean’s limitless waves crashing upon sparkling sands is truly a sight to behold! Since you can’t bring the whole ocean home with you, bring a piece of it indoors with these ocean-inspired DIY resin coasters. This tutorial from Craft Box Girls will show you how to make majestic coasters that will have you feeling beachy all the time!
Be sure to read the included safety precautions and step-by-step instructions included in the Aleene’s Clear Casting & Coating Epoxy Resin Kit before getting started your DIY resin coasters. Wearing your protective safety gear, measure a 1:1 ratio of hardener and resin into separate plastic cups.
Combine the two into a separate plastic cup, and mix with a wooden stir stick for 3 to 5 minutes.
Pour the epoxy mixture into separate smaller cups. Add your mix-ins and stir until well combined.
Once your epoxy mixtures are prepared, carefully pour them into the silicone molds to create your DIY resin coasters. Start with the copper glitter for the sand, then white for ocean foam, followed by blue and teal for the water. Let the resins swirl together to create an abstract wave pattern that looks like the beach!
Use a heat gun to remove bubbles from your epoxy projects before they set. Then allow your DIY resin coasters to cure at room temperature for 24 to 48 hours or until fully hardened.
Once the epoxy has fully cured, remove your DIY resin coasters from their molds. Pour yourself a cold one and get ready to relax like you’re at the beach!
