Dip It #6: Bubble Wrap Coasters

  • Published on Feb 22, 2016
  • Bubble wrap is so much fun to pop! So, what if you couldn't pop it?!
    Yes, the idea is a bit evil, but I have to say these coasters are not only interesting to look at they also have a fantastic texture to them!

    its not that the reverse layer was too thin, its that you cut/sanded away all the points that bound the top layer to the bottom layer. the bubble wrap acted as a shield, so little to no contact beyond the outside edges to actually bind the top to the bottom... and then you went and cut and sanded those edges off, of course the 2 layers came apart...

    What if you then took one of those negatives and filled it with a colored resin to fill the bubbles, so then it was still flat on both sides of the coaster, and youd still have the bubble wrap effect, just now in color? You could even play with it with different colors swirled kr mixed in different ways!

    Note to self: bubble wrap = excellent mold release.

    What type of lathe do you use? I really want to get into wood turning but lathe's are so expensive. Will a mini lathe be good enough to start or are there major drawbacks to it other than just not being able to turn larger pieces?

    I love to see your experiments; and hear the wit that goes with it; hilarious! You know, I quite liked the toasters. They looked OK to me, except, it's just that I'm a bit of a neat freak; and the edges weren't good to say the least. Graeme Evans had the right idea, but everything is perfect in hindsight. Gotta look on the bright side; this experiment was far more a hit than a miss, and at least you didn't make use of the food processor. lol. A big No No! :)

    The intro tho, was pure evil.

    So Cool!!!!! I was thinking the same thing about using them inverted to "catch" the condensation and also so the smooth side is on the furniture and no chance of scratching!!! So Cool!!! My hus6and I Really need to do this, also!!!! πŸ’—πŸ’•πŸ’—

    What if you redid this, but put it in the vacuum chamber and pulled a weak vacuum to make the bubbles in the bubble wrap expand?

    What if you made another one but the original size before cutting. Then use that to do a silicone mold and boom unlimited bubble wrap molds.

    The purpose of a coaster, is to keep moisture OFF your wood furniture. What a neat look though!

    Still awsome result! Love it 😊
    Bubble wrap did not stick to the resin, becouse it is plastic. Try, after you pour first layer of resin and let it dry, to add on the bubble wrap side, some super glue (all over) then stick it to that first layer of resin. After that pour the other part . Just saying. Idk πŸ™ƒ

    the larger bubbled bubble wrap would be really cool for a cutting board since it would show so many more bubbles on it with the larger space

    It'd be cool if you put, like, maybe gold(?) resin into just the holes, and leave the in-between stuff clear.

    The reason why it separated was that the foil separated them entirely and was only hold together on the sides. After cutting them into shape there was no meeting resin surface anymore.

  • Matthew Henington

    They look like they would make really cool tiles for a much larger project. Plus you may not even need to get too much bubble wrap since you could reuse it. Or just make one really huge slab and cut into tiles.

    You should make bubble wrap placemats

    I bet it would look really cool if you put different colored resin over the back of the coasters. You probably won't see this but hey my statement still stands
