Have you ever seen laser cut coasters? Certainly without knowing what exactly they are made with. These coasters own something Seductive in itself, which is likely to attract you. Today we are happy to show you step by step how you can create a few trendy and unique coasters yourself. Get yourself some clay that will air dry easily, nice cookie cutters, some free time, fun company and we can get to work right away!
To bring a warm summer mood into the ambience, opt for bright pastel shades of the coasters or unfold your imagination and express your creativity.
Your new DIY coasters will be an excellent addition to the trendy summer cocktails which we recently presented to you on TRENDOMAT.
Without further ado, take a look at what you need and how you can easily make your own artistic coasters.
1. Roll out a piece of clay evenly until it is 0.5 cm thick. Take a suitable cookie cutter with a diameter of 7 to 9 cm and press firmly with it. Only then can you remove the mold.
2. Take smaller cookie cutters of your choice and decorate your coaster with various beautiful holes. Make sure that you do not punch about 0.5 cm from the edge so that the coaster remains stable. The small cookie cutters for our project look like diamond, heart, star, eye, circle and triangle. The geometrical arrangement of the small holes creates a laser-cut look. But this is not a must and you can try other variants.
Press the round cookie cutter again on the perforated coaster so that all unnecessary residues are removed. With wet hands, correct the shabby edges to refine them. Now let the clay circles dry completely for 2 days.
After the coasters are completely dry, stick strips of masking tape up to the middle. Paint the uncovered side with the foam brush in selected acrylic colors. Carefully paint the inside of the small holes for a perfect look.
If you like the pastel shades, but perhaps you don’t have any, we recommend mixing a 1: 2 ratio between colored and white colors. Remove the tape only after the paint has completely dried out.
Now you are done! Invite your friends and refresh your table not only with cold drinks, but also with fresh fruit and these great coasters. Have fun doing it yourself!
