This project is a quick and easy way to introduce you to epoxy! These are cheap to make, fun to give (or keep), and you can batch them as great “for sale” items!

    It says to mix 4 oz of part A with 4oz of part B for a total of 8 oz. How many coasters is that going to make. I assume it is more than 4 or is it a typo
    Thanks in advance for your response

      Hello Jack,

      Here’s how to calculate how much epoxy you need for any project. First, calculate cubic inches. If you’re filling a mold you can use the depth of the mold, if you’re doing a table top type pour those typically end up at about 1/8” – 1/4″ thick.

      Multiply depth x width x length of the pour. If the coasters are 4” x 4”….

      .125 x 4 x 4 = 8 cubic inches. Multiply the result by .55 to convert cubic inches to ounces. So, if the coasters are 4×4 and you pour between 1/8” and 1/4″ thick and lose a little epoxy to drips, 8 ounces total of epoxy would do it.

    I realize that “ethics” is a highly subjective term and that everyone (and every corporation) has every right to draw the line wherever they feel appropriate. i really do.

    That said and fully meant, it seems kind of like a “come on” or “bait and switch” when a vendor offers “5 Plans for Free” and then when opened the first one I find a “plan” with two pages: The first a list with almost every supply item linked to Amazon. Nice is nice and helpful. While I know that it is likely that each of those links will lead to a specific vendor and result in a small kick-back to the link creator. Even if this is disclosed, it is not made readily apparent to the non-suspicious reader.

    Additionally, is a one page how-to-assemble (without any of the details of how to prepare and use the resin) really a project plan? Or would it more accurately be described as a sales presentation for essential how-to knowledge? Everyone can make that decision but only when they know about it before hand.

    Ironically, I MAY go ahead and BUY the missing key part; BUT (and it’s important) going forward I will be less likely to even look over the details of WWGA offers. Maybe this comes down to whether WWGA sees itself more a a Guild or a cleverly named for profit vendor.
