Glam Glitter Geode Coasters DIY ~ Craft Klatch Another Coaster Friday

Directions:
1.  You can cut your own wood rounds, or you can buy pre-cut ones, like the one I have listed above.
2.  I painted the bottoms and sides black and the tops white.
3.  Once dry, I took the Silly Putty and created snakes and put them on the wood pieces.  I gently pressed it down to make sure it was sealed with the wood.
4.  I mixed the resin with different colors (be sure to customize them for your taste).  Resin Obsession has tons of colors to choose from!  I also mixed the middle with a white pigment powder and chunky white glitter.  
5.  I first poured the colors onto the wood.  The Silly Putty worked to dam it in place.  I used a lighter to pop the bubbles.
6.  Once cured, I removed the Silly Putty and mixed more resin.  This time I mixed glitter and pigment powders and poured them into the open areas.  I popped the bubbles and allowed it to cure.
7.  Once cured, I sanded down the pieces, so they were level and the stripes could be seen.  I wiped off excess dust.
8.  I then mixed a small amount of resin and brushed it onto the pieces, popped the bubbles and let them cure.
9.  Once cured, I mixed Mod Podge and gold glitter and brushed it onto the edges and allowed them to dry.

That's it!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
