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!

    I'd love to see a revisit of this one, but maybe fill in the negative end with an opaque resin. Or color the dots like pixels.

    Aww man, put this in a vacuum chamber to harden and the bubbles would puff up with no wrinkles.

    Make a mold and pour marbled resin over these. Omg it would look soooooo cool.

    Fill the negatives with photochromatic pigment and resin. You'll get some cool colour changes when you place a hot mug over the coaster 😃

    It looked better with the black background. Or maybe a mirror would be cool.

    You should make one of those out of silicon, then make an actual resin bubble wrap sheet. So it frustrates people who try to pop it.

    How would it look if you filled the bottoms with a coloured resin?

  • Isaac Wynyard

    Fill the bubbles with a clear silicon so that it grips the table and would look like you could still pop the bubble wrap.

    Maybe fill the negative with a different colour/color resin

    Actually doesn't have anything to do with the bottom.
    Apparently the resin doesn't stick on the bubble wrap and when you cut it to pieces, the bottom and top part separates, because when you cast it like that, there's no connection between bottom and top halves of the resin.
    If you want to keep them together, you either need to find resin that sticks to bubble wrap or puncture the sheet so that the both sides of resin connects together.
    Also what you should take care is the sides. They won't look that neat if not casted separately.
    I guess you could also first cut the bubble wrap to the correct size, then build oversized mold and finally sand the final product to the correct size, so that you won't cut into bubble wrap, but leave a little resin at sides as well.
    I hope you get what I mean. English is not my native language.

    would look really nice with an opaque black resin bottom if ever do it again with a thicker bottom

    Resin the bubble wrap like you did, then remove the wrap and put in a second color of dye for a cool effect, maybe

    You should fill the tray with epoxy, put it in a vacuum chamber so the bubbles fill, let harden... And boom (but this is still awesome too😂)

    Hi Peter. I love this idea with bubble wrap.I will try a few perhaps some alcohol ink for colour. My friend and I are always looking for a new idea and we found one today. Thank you for this cool idea.

    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...

  • Maddie Wilson

    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! :)

    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!!!! 💗💕💗

    Maybe you could fill those prints with lightly coloured resin (very light pink or blue)

    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?
