A step by step tutorial on how you can make DIY Resin Coasters Using Clay and Confetti. These Resin Coasters are really easy to make and you only need a few items to make these from start to finish.
So last week I showed you guys how I made Festive Resin Coasters using colorful beads and today I am using some glitter confetti to make these adorable Rose Gold Glitter Confetti.
I’ve been using Resin on quite a lot of projects lately and you should check out my DIY Bar Cart , the results are just stunning.

Tutorial For Making DIY Resin Coasters Using Clay and Confetti
This is the part of the tutorial where I completely forgot to take pictures. But I will explain and it will make sense.
So I used clay for making my coasters and I have used this particular clay brand in multiple other projects such as DIY Marbled Clay Bowls, DIY Cactus Clay Ring Holder, DIY Flower Coasters or DIY Marbled Bottle.
Since I had used so much of the clay in previous projects, what I had leftover was random clay pieces which I merged all together into one giant ball.
Flatten out the clay using a rolling pin or a glass bottle.
Then use a Glass and trace a circle, the size of the Cup and cut the clay with an X-Acto Knife.
To create the Rim around it, you need to cut a long thing strip and kind of work your way around the clay to attach it onto the round base.
I honestly love the Rustic feel to it and not being perfect.
Place your clay coaster molds on a baking tray and let it bake.
When it had cooled I gave it a good Two coats of the Gold Metallic Paint.
When the paint was dry that is when I went in with these fun Glitter Rose Gold Confetti.
Since the Confetti circles were big in size I decided to cut them in half.
The idea was to stack the Confetti all around the coaster in a circular pattern.
Some might overlay on top of each other but that is completely fine.
You could use Mod Podge to really glue them down in place if you are concerned that the confetti will float up top when the Resin is poured into the clay coaster mold.
The last step in this whole process is the pouring of the Resin.
I used this particular brand as time and time again it has given me stellar results.
What’s included is Resin and a Hardener which you use equal amounts of and stir in the cup for about three minutes.
Just follow the instructions written at the back of the box as it is pretty simple and straightforward to use.
Pour the Resin into the clay coaster on top of the Confetti.
Completely fill it up till the rim of the Coaster.
And then leave it to cure for almost 72 hours.
You can cover it while it is hardening so no dust particle or animal hair accidentally settles into it.
And there you have it.
