Instructions
1. Pour equal parts of Part A & Part B of the Amazing Casting Resin into separate containers.
2. Add a few drops to Part A of the Resin and stir well.
3. Pour Part B into Part A and mix for about 1 minute.
4. Pour mixture into plastic lid and let this harden.





5. Remove the resin mold from the plastic lid.

Hi, Lee! Back again to acknowledge your reply. Yes, I do kind of a similar sketching as your coasters at times...more my just playing type stuff. I don't have an art blog at this time although I've started a 2nd blog that may end up being more of that sometime. I, although, write a Christian Lifestyles blog at www.somethingbyjuliana.blogspot.com and I have a FB page entitled Something by Juliana, also! Always busy doing something! Love your work & I'm now following your blog, also! God bless...Juliana
