All necessary to make resin coasters

Before diving into the resin coaster-making process, it’s important to gather all the necessary materials. You will need: epoxy resin, a mixing container, stirring sticks, a silicone coaster mould, release agent, protective gloves, colourants, glitter, or other decorative elements to enhance your coasters.

How to make resin coasters: the process

Now that you have everything you need, let’s get started with creating your resin coasters. Begin by preparing your work area and ensuring it is clean and well-ventilated. Follow these steps:

  • Prepare your resin mixture by carefully measuring and mixing the epoxy resin and hardener according to the manufacturer’s instructions;
  • Colour the resin to your liking and if you want to divide it into several containers to create some shades or add further decorations;
  • Once the mixture is ready, pour it into the silicone coaster mould, filling it to the desired thickness;
  • Gently tap the mould on the table to release any trapped air bubbles, you can also use a heat gun or torch to remove any remaining bubbles on the surface;
  • Allow the resin to cure and harden for the recommended time, usually around 24 to 48 hours;
  • Once fully cured, carefully remove the coasters from the mould, and they are ready to use;

Which resin to use for making resin coasters

Choosing the right resin is crucial for achieving high-quality and durable resin coasters. Opt for a high-quality epoxy resin that is specifically designed for crafting purposes. Look for resins that provide excellent clarity, UV resistance, and heat resistance. Our Transparent Resin and iCrystal are ideal for achieving maximum shine and minimising the impact of air bubbles.
