Have you ever seen laser cut coasters? Certainly, without knowing what technique they are made exactly. These coasters have something Seductive in itself, which probably attracts you. Today we are happy to show you step by step how to create some trendy and unique coasters yourself. Get some clay that dries easily in the air, beautiful cookie cutters, a bit of free time, a fun company and we can get to work!
To bring a warm summer vibe to the ambience, opt for bright pastel shades of coasters or unleash your imagination and express your creativity.
Your new DIY coasters will be an excellent addition to the trendy summer cocktails his which we recently presented to you on TRENDOMAT.
Without further ado, look what you need and how you can easily make your artistic coasters yourself.
Cookie cutters (e.g. Premo clay cutter set)
Acrylic colors of your choice
Roll out the clay on baking paper to keep the table clean.
1. Roll out a piece of clay evenly until it reaches a thickness of 0.5 cm. Take appropriate cookie cutter with diameter from 7 to 9 cm and press firmly with it. Only then remove the form.
Time for small holes!
2. Take smaller cookie cutters of your choice and decorate your coasters with various beautiful holes. Be careful not to punch about 0.5 cm from the edge to keep the stand sturdy. The small cookie cutters for our project look like diamond, heart, star, eye, circle and triangle. The geometric arrangement of the small holes creates a look as if cut by the laser. This is not a must and you can try other variations.
You only need two days to be patient, meanwhile your coasters will dry out.
Press again with the round cookie cutter on the perforated saucer, so that all unnecessary remains are removed. With wet hands correct the shabby edges to refine them. Now let the audio circuits dry completely for 2 days.
The most beautiful colors are those that you like the most.
After the coasters have dried completely, stick strips of masking tape up to the middle. Cover the uncovered side with the foam brush in selected acrylic colors. Carefully stroke the inside of the small holes for a perfect look.
Doing something yourself is really amusing.
Summer mood with fresh fruit and DIY coasters
If you like the pastel shades, but you may not have them available, we recommend mixing a 1: 2 ratio between colorful and white. Remove the tape only after the paint has completely dried out.
