I recently picked up a couple of cork coasters at the car boot sales and decided to add a little bit of colours. Inspired by geometric sixties trend, I drew some lines to form some geometrics and finished it with paints and gold foil. Find out more about this simple tutorial.
Prepare the materials and tools:
-acrylic paints & brushes
– matte mod podge
– scotch tape
– silver marker (optional)
– drawing pen, ruler, scissors
Step one: Draw asymmetrical lines with drawing pen
Step two: Measure the gold foil and cut to the shape of triangle
Step three: Place the triangle foil and stick it with the glue
Step four: Paint the coaster
I choose 3 colours; black, red and turquoise. To get the sharp line while applying the paint, I secure the lines with scotch tape.
Step five: Dab the black paint on, let the first paint dries before applying other coats. For quicker dry time, use the hair dryer.
Step Six: I draw silver polkadots and stripes with silver marker to add some extra bits.
You can do it in your own way, the design possibilities are endless!
My new coaster sits nicely there.
