DIY Cork Coasters
Materials & Tools:
1. Cork Coasters, round and square
2. Acrylic Pearl Paint, Martha Stewart Crafts, Jet Stream & Aquarium
3. Sponge brushes
4. Paint palette tray
5. Stazon, Multi-Surface Inkpad, Stone Gray
6. Your choice of rubber stamps
Gather and get ready all the materials and tools needed as mentioned in the list above.
Paint one side of the cork coasters with Martha Stewart Acrylic Pearl Paint, Jet Stream color. A few thin layers of paint is always better than single thick layer.
Leave it dry while you paint the rest of the coasters.
Repeat another layer or two of Jet Stream paint to have a better coverage. Leave it aside until you are able to touch and feel that it is dry.
Brush a thin layer of Martha Stewart Acrylic Pearl Paint, Aquarium color, which is slightly darker that Jet Stream. The paint does not have to be even, uneven shades will give more character to your coasters.
Leave it aside to dry for 30 minutes. While waiting, clean up all the paint brushes and tray.
Stamp on your choice of rubber stamps design onto the coasters with Stazon multi surface ink. I used Holiday theme rubber stamps, these stamps came with the craft magazines. You may adapt this method for other occasions by using different theme.
Leave the coasters to dry for overnight before using them to serve drinks.
Voila…. these cork coasters with a special touch from your crafty hands are now ready to serve drinks. I have tested the coaster by leaving a few drops of the water on it and leave it for overnight. The coaster is fine one the next morning, no peeling of paint and no smearing of stamped image.
