DIY Metallic Color Block Coasters

Supplies

Lay your cork board sheet on a protected work surface. Use your ruler to mark your cork board at 4 inch intervals along the top and bottom of the sheet. 

Place the cork board sheet on a cutting mat, or cutting board, to protect the surface below from the sharp edge. Use a ruler as a guide to keep the cuts straight, score the cork along the entire length of the board. You will end up with 3, 4 inch strips of cork.

Repeat this process on the strips, cutting each into 3, 4 inch squares.

Once the 12 x 12 cork board is cut you will have 12 separate 4 inch squares to work with.

Step 2 ::

Create + Paint Your Metallic Color Block Coaster Design

Now it is time for the fun! Get creative and begin to layout your design by taping off sections to paint on the cork squares. You have two options here, create your design all at once or layer your colors with drying time in between.

Using a flat brush or sponge, paint the first unmasked area with one color from your selected paints. Be sure to fill the area in completely and don’t forget to paint the edges for a polished look.

Continue to paint each coaster to achieve the desired look. When done painting, lay coasters flat and allow to dry 30 min minimum. 

Using a new piece of painters tape to tape off a new section to paint with a new color. Repeat this process for each paint color.

Once each paint color is applied and dry, gentle remove the tape from all of the coasters.

Finally, spray coasters outdoors or in a well-ventilated area with an acrylic varnish to seal.
