In this video, I show you the process I use to make resin wine butler and coaster sets. I have experimented with a bunch of different epoxy resin when perfecting my resin coasters and resin wine butlers. Unfortunately, the first few brands I tried, (which are well known, high-quality brands,) such as ArtResin, Stone Coat Countertops, and Envirotex Lite, ended disastrously. Most of them would not get completely hard and I would end up with a wine butler that drooped on both sides. Kind of defeats the whole purpose of a wine butler when the wine glasses end up being supported by the table! Some of these first epoxy resin brands I tried took over thirty days to get even remotely hard enough to handle the weight of the wine glasses. Some yellowed, specifically the Envirotex Lite epoxy resin brand. I was finally able to find a brand that delivered on all the things I was looking for in the best epoxy resin for wine butlers and coasters.
Here are the qualities of an Epoxy Resin that works well for Resin Coasters and Resin Butlers:
Long Working Time
Dried Rock Hard, Overnight
