It sounds very complicated, making coaster from Cold Enamel. But that's not true, you know!
There is a paint, with which you can create an enamel look, on all kinds of surfaces. No hassle with resin, mixing and heating and pouring hardener, none of that! Just bring it straight out of the bottle wherever you want!
Make your own coasters from cardboard beer pads with the glossy Cold Enamel paint, or create your own jewellery, decorations and other workpieces. The special thing about this paint is that the colors do not mix with each other. So passing red through yellow never becomes orange, red stays red and yellow stays yellow. So the color remains the real color!
With a needle or pin or cocktail stick, you can mix up the wet paint so you get funny effects.
We used ordinary square cardboard (blank) beer pads, but you can also use the round (printed) from the pub, because the paint covers 100%.
Whether you pimp your own old coasters from MDF or wood
Only on glass and smooth surfaces can not be done, because the paint does not stick to them. (By the way, you can make window stickers on glass, because you can pull the painted design off after drying. More info about that you can find HERE.)
For the 6 coasters we only used 3 colors, but the Colrall Cold Enamel line has 15 colors, including transparent and white glitter.
Color the edges first, the paint is nicely thick and does not even fall over the edge!
Fill the whole felt, do you have some bells? Then you pierce the bubbles with a sharp pin.
The paint remains wet for a long time, so you do not need to rush. Drip some dots along the edge.
Draw a line with the pin through the dots! That's how you get cute hearts leaves.
Also in the middle and in the corners you can apply some color and decoration with the pin.
Or you fill your felt with stripes and then go through it with a pin.
You can of course use your own imagination, by making lines, hearts, flowers or other shapes. You'll see, the ideas will arise when you're busy!
The paint needs to dry overnight! But after that waiting you also really have something: Special, homemade (Almost) Real Enamel Coasters!
