I wanted to post these awhile ago but I had to wait until my swap partner got them. They were so much fun to make!

Those rock really hard! I've no experience with resin, so it might be silly to ask, but how did you make them?

Not a all! It was so super easy. You can use wood or ceramic tiles. I found some images to use, ModPodged them to the tiles. I used a product called Envirotex (that's the resin stuff) and mixed it up according to the direction-a little goes a long way! Then you spread it on your tile and there ya go~ Let it dry. Just make sure that you get all the bubbles out of the tile when you pour the resin otherwise it looks crappy.The whole process takes a few days due to the drying. I've also found out that the thinner the paper is when you should modpodge-if it is thicker or glossier then you really don't need it. Sorry this was so long winded  Smiley

There's a really good tutorial on making resin coasters on the Crafty Chica web site here. It's under the "Projects" section!

These are really cool! I know nothing about resin - does it make them heat-resistant? I wonder if this same method could be used to make a trivet to set hot stuff on.
