So much fun to create with EasyCast!!

 So, my son set up a ROKU Streaming Player device on our TV recently and I was searching for crafting stations to set up on it and I found some awesome video tutorials on how to cast resin to make drink coasters.  The one I loved was CraftKlatch and I was amazed at the beautiful coasters she was making, so I made a trip to Hobby Lobby and bought all the supplies I needed.  The only thing I couldn't find were the silicone molds but I happened to have a Wilton silicone hearts mold that I used for making heart shaped chocolate candies at Valentine's this year and I had some silicone cupcake molds too, so I tried my hand at making some resin heart pendents with the heart mold and also used the cupcake molds but only filled those to about 3/4 of an inch, those came out really cute too!! I was pretty happy with the results, especially since it was my first time at it, so now I'll be ordering some coaster molds soon, so stay tuned for those!
I used EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy, Perfect Pearls pigment powders to add color, some plastic (three dimensional) cupcake, ladybug and heart buttons for the heart pendants, some puffy plastic sticker for the round ones, and lots of iridescent fine glitter.
Here is the link for the video tutorials I'm learning from, I think you'll enjoy them!
