Step 1
Begin by mixing your resin to the specification of your resin pack, The resin I used was a 2:1 ratio of resin and hardener. Mix the resin slowly for a few minutes to ensure no bubbles and that the mixtured is well combined.

Step 2
Add a drop of the acrylic ink into the resin and mix well. The more ink you use the deeper the colour will be. If you used more than a few drops I’d suggest adding a little more of the hardener to ensure that you keep an equal ratio.

Add a layer of green resin to the top of the coaster, by pouring slowly and spreading using the mixing tool you will ensure an equal coverage.
