These rule!  Would you be able to do any with paper in the middle, or is it way too hot?

Hot? Not much heat. Just a little from the chemical reaction between the resin and the hardner. The paper idea may work, depending on the paper. I did some with playing cards but they didn't turn out too good. Looked like wet paper. But others I did with printed copies of baseball cards, and they turned out fine.

Just what I have been looking for.  Have you ever used cross stitch items with the acrylic?  Just wondering how they would work out.

Never tried any type of fabric. I take that back. I did try some fabric small button flowers, and they turned out pretty good. I tried some old bottle caps for Christmas and those were awesome too.

These are DELIGHTFUL. If I could make these, I might actually be tempted to use coasters around here.

woooHoo! First time poster and long time craft creeper.  So, I was greatly inspired by your coasters that I had to try them out for my self.  I got the same glaze you did and also went down the paint section and picked up a few of their clear quart sized mixing cups.  I know I should have reused something but, I did make  a gallant effort in looking at home. Also, they were pretty cheap at .78  cents!

 A couple of things we ( the fiance wanted to get in on the action, too! ) noticed.  The side that faces the cup came out frosty.  The top part that was getting "air" was completely clear. Good to know if you are putting something in it that has a right side up. Getting them out of the cups took a bit of effort.  I have found that if you put your hand inside the cup and push the sides of the cup away from the coaster you'll start hearing it "snap" off of the cup leaving air bubbles all the way around.  Then you can just give it a whack and it will pop right off!  Another thing we noticed about using the mixing cups is that it made a perfect indention for your cup to sit in!  It also looks like we will be able to re use them for the next go around.  Well worth the .78 cents.

I'll try to post up some pics later!

Thanks for the brilliant idea and I hope some of these tips help.  Smiley

Wow.  I made some cross stitch Christmas  coasters and they came out great.  I also found some square clear plastic sandwich containers and used them.  everything came out clear and they came right out, much easier then the plastic electric tape containers. Would love to show you but I don't know how to download the picture.  I have not yet  decided what I will put on the bottom so they show the stitching on the back.  Hummmm that just might be interesting.
