Get Inspired!


There are so many techniques you can use to personalize these coasters, all that’s required is a little imagination, a willingness to have fun, and a desire try something new! Just remember, as you’re creating your coasters, the top of the coaster is at the bottom of the mold. This means you’ll need to add features upside down to ensure your design is right-side-up when you remove your coaster from the mold! Here are a few ideas to get you started.

TotalBoat Epoxy Coasters: Embedding Small Objects in Epoxy

Casting Items in Epoxy

Embed treasured items or small objects in mixed epoxy to make them appear as if they’re floating or are preserved in a glass-like coaster. If you’re embedding items in the epoxy, seal them first by dipping them in epoxy or by leaving a thin layer on the bottom of the coaster. For this example, we used small pieces of colored sea glass.

TotalBoat Epoxy Coasters - Adding Multiple Colors

Creating Sparkly Bursts of Color

Add intense color and sparkle to your coasters with the included mica powder pigments. Divide mixed epoxy into smaller cups and add a little pigment at a time until the desired color is achieved. Manipulate the design using a wooden stick or use air from the heat gun to move the colors around.

TotalBoat Epoxy Coasters - Alcohol Inks Create a Droplet Effect

Creating Droplet Effects and Translucent Colors

Use the included alcohol inks to get a droplet effect or a translucent colored look. To create the droplet effect, start by dropping the colors you want into the epoxy. Then add white ink drops on top (the white ink is heavier and sinks the other colors). For a translucent effect, add alcohol ink, drop by drop, until you get the look you want.
