GEODE DECORATIVE GLASS COASTERS

"Treasure the effects of Gédéo Bio resin combined with Fluid Pigment and create a unique decoration"

You will need:

  • Organic crystal resin kit 150 ml
  • Fluid pigment in Black, Silver and White
  • Protective gloves
  • Mixing sticks
  • Plastic cups/jars
  • Serving measures

In a dry and temperate place, protect your work surface and ensure that it is flat and even. Be careful: once you start pouring, it will no longer be possible to move the mould.

Put the gloves on.

PREPARING THE RESIN

Into a cup or jar, pour 2 full measures of Resin A (30 ml).

Then, add 1 full measure of Resin B (30 ml).

Tip: Remember to scrape down the sides of the measure with the mixer to ensure that all the product is removed.

 


Mix the hardener-resin mixture with the stick for 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to another cup and mix for a further few minutes.


Tip: To avoid bubbles, be careful not to mix too vigorously and to pour the mixture gently.


PREPARING THE FLUID PIGMENT COLOURS

Distribute the resin into 3 cups as follows:

2 cups with 40-45% of the mixture:



Into one of these, add about twenty drops of Fluid pigment in Black; 


Into the other, add about twenty drops of Fluid pigment in White and mix;


Into the 3rd cup, add the rest of the resin (15-20% of the mixture) and add about ten drops of Fluid pigment in Silver. Mix.

CASTING IN THE MOULD

 

Take the first cup (with the Fluid Pigment in Black) and pour a first layer over the 1st half of the mould.

Tip: Start with a small amount at the edge of the mould, so that the mixture can gradually spread towards the centre of the mould. You should not have used all of the mixture.



Without waiting too long, pour the mixture which includes Fluid Pigment in Silver against the black in the centre of the mould.



Then, pour the mixture with Fluid Pigment in White over the other half of the mould, starting at the edge. Once again, do not use the entire cup.


CREATING THICKNESS

 

Add the rest of the mixture with Fluid Pigment in Black by slowing letting it flow over the edges of the mould on the black side. Do the same with the white mixture.


DRYING

 

Allow to dry for 24 hours, away from dust.

Tip: You could also decorate the coaster once it is dry using the 4Artist marker in Silver which is included in the case.

Serving measures

Tip: To avoid bubbles, be careful not to mix too vigorously and to pour the mixture gently.

 

PREPARING THE FLUID PIGMENT COLOURS


 Distribute the resin into 3 cups as follows:

- 1 cup with 65-70% of the mixture: this mixture should be transparent, with no colour added.




1 cup with 10% of the mixture: add about ten drops of Fluid Pigment in Silver. Mix



1 cup with 20-25% of the mixture: add about ten drops of Fluid Pigment in Black. Mix.


CASTING IN THE MOULD

 

Take the first cup with the Fluid Pigment in Black and pour a layer over the contours of the mould, ensuring that the layer is not too thick.




Without waiting too long (ensuring that the black does not spread too much), take the mixture which includes Fluid Pigment in Silver and pour a little in the centre of the mould, following the shape of the mould.




Quickly, to prevent the first colours from spreading too much, pour the transparent resin mixture in the centre of the mould, between the black and the silver.



CREATING THICKNESS

 

Add the rest of the black mixture, by slowing letting it flow over the black edges. Do the same with the transparent mixture and the silver mixture.



DRYING

Allow to dry for 24 hours, away from dust.

Tip: You could also decorate the coaster once it is dry using the 4Artist marker in Silver which is included in the case.
