Resin Tutorial: Ouija coaster & matching bookmark

 witchy resin coaster


This project is made up of 2 parts. In the first part we will be creating the pieces that will be embedded into the coaster, and then in the second part we will make the coaster and bookmark. 


The supplies needed for this project are:



Part 1 - Creating the embeds

Note: Do not make these pieces very deep since they will be embedded into the coaster and/or used on top of the bookmark.

Step 1: Prepare some resin and divide it into 3 mixing cups.

Step 2: To one cup add purple pigment and glitter. Mix well. Pour this purple mixture into the planchette mold.

Step 3: To another cup add blue pigment. Mix well. Pour this blue resin mixture into the star mold.

Step 4: To the last cup add silver glitter. Mix well. Pour this mixture into the moon and star mold. 

Step 5: Wait for the resin to cure.

Step 6: De-mold the planchette, moon and stars.

The embeds are now ready to use for the next part.


Part 2 - Making the coaster and bookmark

Step 7: Prepare some resin.

Step 8: Pour a thin layer of resin into the coaster mold. 

Note: You only need to cover the base - enough to embed the resin pieces half way.

Step 17: Prepare some resin.

Step 18: Pour a small amount of resin onto the middle of the coaster. Gently tilt the coaster to move the resin around. You will get an even layer of resin in the middle of the coaster. Alternatively, use a silicone tool to move the resin around. Dome the coaster edge using a pointed silicone tool.
