Our XL Hexagon Silicone Coaster Mould is supersized for extra room to get creative. Fill with either resin or JESMONITE® and then go as refined or as wild as you like with anything and everything from glitter to flowers to neon powder and floating metal powder. Or, why not have a go at some petri art with our great range of alcohol inks for some seriously cool patterns! The possibilities are truly endless with such a diverse mould!

Try out one of our pigment bundles for a cohesive set, or try your hand at some terrazzo with JESMONITE® for some fashionable and unique pieces!

Remember to use our heat-resistant resin if you are looking to use your XL Hexagon Coaster as a functioning coaster with your favourite oversized mug filled with hot tea or coffee!

Measurements:

  • This mould measures 149mm width (point to point) x 129mm length (flat side to flat side) x 10mm depth approx.
  • This mould takes 140mm of resin.
  • This mould take 280g of JESMONITE®.

If you're using these moulds to make coasters, we recommend that you fill your edges and then add a 3mm thick clear layer of HEAT-RESIST™ resin first in your mould. Let it set and then add more resin with colour, ink, glitter, flowers etc. Once turned out, what was the bottom will be the top and heat-resistant up to 90oC! Remember that our HEAT-RESIST™ resin needs 21 days to achieve full cure, so don't place a hot cup on it too early.

If using to make a JESMONITE® coaster, remember to seal the coaster before use with PROTECT-IT™ sealant to make it less porous.

How to look after your new mould: top tips from the Resin8® team

Our silicone moulds can be used multiple times - to get the very best resin results it is important to care for them perfectly. Keep your mould in the bag it comes to you in and store carefully. Moulds do not like to be stacked or kept contained in a box with other items, this will result in the mould losing its shape. Moulds that are more complex to demould from will not last as long as straightforward, plain moulds.

It is best to use a heat tool such as an embossing craft gun to rid bubbles from your creations, naked flames can damage the outer edges of your mould. Take extra care when de-moulding your creation, pay special attention to not scratch the interior of your mould with long fingernails.

Any residue left in your mould once you have finished using it can be brushed out with a soft bristled brush such as a watercolour paint brush. Do not use sticky tape to de-tack dust, fluff or glitters - doing this will remove the interior shine within your mould.

If your casting comes out dull it could be that the mould has come to the end of its life (or that the mould doesn't have a shiny interior surface). You can keep using moulds that are past their best - it just takes a little more effort. Add a thin layer of resin to the casting or use polish and a cloth to bring up the shine.

You might like to consider using moulds that have past their best for another exciting craft. How about exploring the wonderful world of JESMONITE®? Resin-tired moulds make excellent moulds for working with JESMONITE®​​​​​​​. You can find more about this wonderful composite here.
