      This question comes through email by Linda

      I made a coaster from pennies using Alumilite Clear Casting Resine and it came out beautiful. I plan to make a coaster for my nephew with beer caps. I know the coasters will scratch when someone places a can or glass on them. Is there anything/or a spray to protect scratches? Thank you.

      Hi Linda,

      I have spoken with the manufacturer about your question. Their opinion is that under normal use, you shouldn’t see any scratches or such since the resin cures very hard. If something does mark the surface, they recommended layering with another layer of resin.
