Altered Coasters

Good Morning Crafters

Today we have one of our new design team member's Carol sharing her tutorial with us.
Welcome to the team Carol, we hope that you enjoy your time with us.


Imagination Craft Items used:

Also needed:
Two coasters
Black acrylic paint, gesso or chalkboard


Started with two coasters which came free in a charity envelope, coated both sides with black gesso, then when dry a further coat of chalkboard paint.


Image stamps were then inked up with gilding glue, stamped onto the coasters and allowed to go tacky. Gilding flakes were then added.


Once dry the excess flakes were then brushed off.


Thank you for visiting today!
