Learn to Make Acrylic Poured Heat Proof Coasters and Hot Plate Plus Cutting Board
In this course we’ll cover two projects that are both useful and beautiful, which I think is the best kind of DIY gift to give.
These are projects I see questions about often in the Acrylic Pouring group, especially about what resin to use to make your project heat resistant. Well in the supplies section I've recommended a resin that works great for up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit and won't stick to dishes.
I also see some common mistakes people make when trying to create these types of projects that will be avoided by using this course.
Common Mistakes You'll Avoid:
- Using the wrong paint consistency for dutch pours leading to muddy or chunky looking pours
- Mixing wrong medium formula that eventually cracks as it dries
- Trouble with dutch pour technique that doesn't create that light ribbon look
- Hot plate not heat resistant and sticking to your dishes
I created this course so that anyone at any level could create an awesome looking gift even if they haven't poured anything in their life! I've made both these projects many times and have outlined the simple step by step process and it will work for you too!
Check out the projects below!

Hi! I'm Kriss Danielson, I started acrylic paint pouring almost 2 years ago. I had seen a video on Facebook and fell in love! I started to watch tons of You Tube videos and surfing the net to learn as much as I possibly could about this amazing art form. I realized how much I loved to teach others about painting, so I started my own You Tube channel and have almost 23,000 subscribers and one of my paintings has had almost 1.4 million views! I'm passionate about creating one of a kind pieces with colors and designs that catch the eye and ignite the imagination!
