I have been eyeing up a lot of pretty mud cloth patterns lately and wanted to take it to the coaster! I decided on white and copper as a festive twist on this African cloth tradition.
- 2 Paintbrushes (1 larger, 1 very fine)
- Acrylic Paint, your choice
- Optional: ruler, pencil, Pigment pen
How to make it
Step 1: I started by painting two coasters with white Acrylic and then the other two with Copper acrylic. I did two coats to fill in the small pockets of the cork.
Step 2: Next, I painted free hand in the opposite colour a mud cloth inspired pattern using my fine brush and a steady hand. I happened to have a white pigment pen which made the copper coasters much easier to design freehand. I used the ruler for straighter edges and the pencil to draw some shapes before committing to the overall pattern.
Step 3: Finally, I sprayed a coat of clear sealer to protect the pattern from condensation!
