  1. Basecoat the coasters with Wicker White. Let dry.
  2. On palette paper, mix Wicker White with Pure Black in various ratios so you have several different shades of gray.

  4. Tape off the edges of the recessed areas of the coasters.
  5. Protect your workspace and put on the proper PPE according to the information on plaidonline.com/ModPodgeResin.
  6. Mix your resin according to the instructions on plaidonline.com/ModPodgeResin.
  7. Separate the resin into 2 different cups. Add a drop of Fire Coral to the first cup and a drop of Navy Blue to the second. Using a craft stick, combine the paint thoroughly into each cup. Use a torch to remove any bubbles.
  8. Pour the Fire Coral resin into the recesses of 2 coasters and the Navy Blue resin into the recesses of the other two coasters. Use a torch to remove any bubbles.
  9. Allow the resin to cure for at least 24 hours and remove the tape.
