- Let's do this. Here's what you need.

- [Paul] Ammonium chloride.

- [Kaitlyn] Wood coasters.

- [Paul] Rubber stamps.

- [Kaitlyn] Heat tool.

- [Paul] Heat-resistant work surface.

- [Kaitlyn] Paint brushes.

- [Paul] Clear wood finish.

- [Kaitlyn] Measuring cups and spoons.

- [Paul] Bowls.

- [Kaitlyn] Gloves.

- [Paul] Safety glasses.

- [Kaitlyn] And a mystery ingredient.

- [Paul] Ooh. Excuse me. Alright so, to make the solution we have to use ammonium chloride. From what I read is not that dangerous, but

- Eh.

- To be safe definitely you should have goggles and some disposable gloves.

- Nobody wants to be blinded.

- Nope. It said one size fits all but these are kinda small. Oh gosh.

- Don't do this at home kids. Oh, wait, you can. The formula is, one tablespoon of this stuff, ammonium chloride, to half a cup of water. It's the cold coming through.

- [Paul] That's some good quality tap.

- Always good to taste the water before. Let's stir this bad boy.

- So we're just trying to get it roughly dissolved. We're not sure if it's gonna get completely dissolved. There is a mystery ingredient to this.

- What could it be?

- Could it be a...

- Duh nuh nuh nuh.

- A chicken egg. This is just your standard caged chicken egg. What you have to do is separate the whites from the yolk 'cause we don't need the yolk, that's no joke. So basically our solution of just ammonium chloride and water is way too thin to stamp, so the egg white is just gonna thicken it up nicely.

- Sort of make it like an ink.

- Yeah, exactly.

- Consistency.

- Could I get another bowl, 'cause I'm gonna do, I gotta think this through. I'm gonna put the yolk in one, the egg white in the other because we wanna kind of beat the egg white a little bit.

- Do it on the corner of the table.

- Oh.

- Oh.

- We are cracked.

- Oh, oh.

- Oh god.

- Oh no.

- I failed you Guy Fieri.

- No it's goin' well.

- There, one egg white.

- Alright, cool. Let's mix, ew. Ugh.

- Now you don't want to beat it too much 'cause then you'll get a meringue. And that's for a different video.

- Tasty.

- Now you're just gonna add the whole egg white to that.

- Mmm, appetizing.

- mm-hmm.

- It's stamping time.

- Now if you don't want to ruin whatever surface you're using it's good to have something that'll be able to take the heat.

- Let's do, what is this? 'Fake It Till You Make It' logo.

- Wow.

- We're gonna have our own customized coasters.

- [Paul] Which you can get your own custom logo stamp at RubberStamps.com.

-Plug.

- Plug, you gotta do it.

- Sometimes less is more when it comes to this stuff. There's a bubble.

- Uh-oh.

- Everyone stay calm.

- Avoid the bubbles.

- Everyone stay calm.

- So this is definitely the most important step. 'Cause if you mess up this impression the coaster's ruined, You can't go back. No pressure. No pressure, you can't go back. No pressure, you can't go back. No pressure, no pressure, no pressure.

- So now we're gonna heat it.

- Good ol' heat tool.

- You could probably be good with this, that is really hot. There it is.

- What a beaut.

- Mm-hmm. Well now we're gonna wait half an hour and let that cool, and then we'll go the the next step. Alright, here we are a half an hour later. Half an hour. Oh yeah, you don't need goggles anymore, we are done with that. Gloves, not a bad thing to have.

- ooh.

- Steve, goggles. So we're gonna be, you gotta stir it up first.

- Oops.

- I'm the expert crafter. Right now if you put a drink on this, that was sweating.

- Sweating.

- Sweating like I am right now. It would just leak through the whole coaster. So we're gonna put a coat of poly on it. On the front, let that dry, then on the back. And that'll help kind of just really make it look like a nice polished coaster. So Kaitlyn just stirred that up. You don't want to shake this stuff up 'cause you don't want bubbles.

- I can't tell if it smells like anything.

- It smells. It's got a nice shiny glaze to it. I have no idea how long that takes to dry.

- Ooh.

- I'm good, I'm good.

- Uh.

- Lot of words.

- You're tipping it, watch out.

- I'm not tipping it. Alright, you wanna look?

- Yeah.

- Missed a spot. We'll see you in two hours. Let's just say it like, two hours later. Okay, get that out of here. Several hours later.

- Whew.

- Oh, that's the front. Ow. I'm sitting on. Alright we got the front and back coated. And there it is, a finished coaster.

- And you can use any custom stamp, stock stamp, whatever you want.

- Yup.

- [Crew Member] Ow!

- Alright, that'll conclude this episode of 'Fake It Till You Make It'. And always,, god. Remember, if you have a suggestion for a project you'd like to see, give us a,
