Information
Trimmed specifically to fit our Heart Coaster Mould, this Shaped to Perfection Heart Coaster Burr slots into the included silicone coaster mould allowing you to create your own unique wooden burl homeware without the need for saws or drills. Have fun making your very first heart shaped coasters (making sure you use our heat-resistant resin) or fill with slowcure resin and drill through the top to make a hanging decoration.

Dimensions of mould: 100mm x 80mm x 8mm depth.
(Approximate) dimensions of heart burr: 75mm x 36mm x 8mm depth. 

How?
  • After placing the burr into the mould, use Resin8 Heat-Resistantlowcure Resin and your favourite transparent pigment to fill the mould.
  • This mould takes approximately 20ml of resin to fill. 
  • Once dry, use Rejuven8 Wet and Dry Paper to smooth out any over-filled edges.
  • Once all lovely and smooth, either use polish, or simply paint on another thin of heat-resistant resin and leave to dry.
  • Your glorious piece is complete! 
What's a burr? A burr (or burl if you're from across the pond) is a tree growth which has caused the wood to grow in a deformed way. Usually this is from an injury to the tree or a virus, fungus or disease. This means that the wood is full of small knots and therefore looks very attractive when worked, and their waney edge retained. Burrs are often highly prized and are sought after for use in furniture, sculpture, art and jewellery. 

Our burrs are harvested from Australian Mallee (eucalyptus). The wood is richly coloured (compared to the non burred wood) and comes up a treat when polished. They are robust, stable and hard and can be polished with danish oil, a polyurethane spray or even a thin layer of resin.
