A few days ago I was in a really bad place with quarantine life. I had enjoyed a few days of being super lazy and zoning out, but then I began to feel restless and irritable. I totally get the science and the reasons why we’re all staying home, but I did hit a low point. There’s a very strong streak in me that doesn’t like being kept in place. I love my freedom, I like planning trips, I miss my friends. I’m growing tired of looking at the same streets in my neighborhood. I hate that the beaches are closed and the local high school track where I like to jog is closed. Everything is closed, and it’s getting to me. I realized there are two ways to handle this. To pout and complain and binge watch TV, or to turn to the things that alter my mindset: get outside, talk to a friend, exercise, clean, and then do something creative.epoxy wood table

That always works. So yesterday morning I dug into my stash of DIY supplies and created these agate resin coasters in my favorite colors. The process of making them was therapeutic and they turned out better than I expected. I had some art resin in my stash from when I ordered it last year with the intention of making more resin artwork that I never got around to making. I have always loved the glossy smooth finish of resin and I’m still loving my DIY resin desktop! A month ago I ordered silicone resin molds on Amazon and I pulled those out and my craft paints and I got busy making. To create the gold border, I used Martha’s gold fine glitter paint around the edges of the mold. You can add gold to the edges of your coasters at the end of the project after the resin is hardened using paint/glue/glitter but I did it first. Either way works. I also mixed four paint colors with the craft paints I had on hand. You only need a few drops of paint to colorize resin, maybe a teaspoon or so, so go easy.

I mixed dark navy, mid tone marine blue, lighter slate blue, and turquoise. Epoxy resins are a form of polymers that are increasingly being used in many industries. These epoxy resins are being appointed in the manufacturing of adhesives, plastics, paints, coatings, primers and sealers, flooring and other products and materials. Due to this reason, the top epoxy resin manufacturers have become an integral component of construction sector.

The products of leading epoxy resin manufacturers are used in building and construction applications. It must be noted that the major epoxy resin manufacturers are becoming popular as they offer resins having high resistance, flexibility, along with good electrical properties. The long lasting resins have found their way into the thermostat resins’ market as well. When the epoxy resins, introduced by epoxy resin manufacturers, are reacted with proper materials, they form thermostat resins. These thermostat resins have a high degree of chemical and solvent resistance.
