Understanding Resin Epoxy Art

Resin epoxy art involves using a two-part epoxy resin to create stunning, glossy finishes on various surfaces. From coasters to artwork, the possibilities are truly endless. Fenkraft offers a range of high-quality resin products such as Resin Lust, Resin Nova, and Resin Infinite to bring your creations to life.

Materials You'll Need

Before diving into your resin coaster project, make sure you have all the necessary materials on hand. You will need epoxy resin, hardener, silicone coaster molds, mixing cups, stirring sticks, gloves, a heat gun, and any desired colorants or embellishments.

Step-by-Step Guide

Step 1: Prepare Your Workspace

Start by setting up your workspace in a well-ventilated area. Cover your work surface with a plastic sheet or parchment paper to protect it from any potential drips or spills.

Step 2: Mix the Resin

Follow the instructions on your epoxy resin packaging to mix the resin and hardener in the correct ratio. Stir the mixture thoroughly but gently to avoid creating air bubbles.

Step 3: Add Colorants

If you wish to add color to your resin, this is the time to do so. Use resin dye, alcohol inks, or mica powders to achieve your desired color palette. Mix the colorants into the resin mixture evenly.

Step 4: Pour the Resin

Carefully pour the resin mixture into the silicone coaster molds. You can create layers with different colors or effects for added dimension. Use a heat gun to remove any air bubbles that may have formed on the surface.

Step 5: Cure the Coasters

Allow the resin to cure as per the recommended time on the packaging. It's important to let the coasters cure undisturbed to ensure a smooth and glossy finish.

Tips and Tricks

- To create unique effects, try adding glitter, dried flowers, or metallic flakes to your resin mixture.

- Use a level to ensure your coasters dry flat and even.

- Experiment with different mold shapes and sizes for a variety of coaster designs.
