Resin crafts are steadily gaining popularity throughout the years, and these DIY resin coasters from Summer Girl Designs on Youtube are one of my favorite resin projects. I love preserving flowers, and resin crafts just gave me so many possibilities for using my preserved flowers. This resin coaster is actually my first project, and I’m so in love with the outcome. I even made a lot to give out to my loved ones. So if you’re looking for a worthwhile DIY project, try making these gorgeous DIY pressed flower coasters. Watch the video tutorial below to learn how to make them.
- cast resin
- two cups
- pressed flowers and leaves
- four molds
- torch gun
- crushed glass pieces
- wooden stick
- silicone brush
- gold marker
To start, mix your resin in one cup, then move it to another cup to make sure it8217;s mixed thoroughly. After you blend the resin, pour it into each mold, then pop any air bubbles with a torch gun. Next, apply some crushed glass pieces to the bottom of each mold. Now, start adding your pressed leaves for the greenery. (Use a wooden stick so it8217;s easier to put the pressed leaves and flowers.) After this, add the pressed flowers. (It8217;s up to you how you want to design your coasters, place pressed flowers and leaves as you desire.) Once satisfied with the design, carefully torch the upper area with no flowers or leaves. Leave them for the whole night to let them set. After this, de-mold the coasters.
Next, remove any lifted edges with a knife. After this, mix another batch of resin and pour it on top of the coasters to coat them. Spread them across up to the edges using a silicone brush and torch any air bubbles. Finally, use a gold marker to add gold trim.
