Coasters provide functional use in the open air of your home. Of course, my coffee table is a piece of crapfrom from Ikea, but that doesn\'t mean I want to encourage black paint to bubble and fall off the pellet board. Not only do I want to bring a standard illusion to my living room, but I also want to add a little personalized nerdy style to everyday features by making my own coasters with comic books and tiles. I saw some tutorials online about sticking paper on small objects and then called coasters . . . . . . Followed by disturbing footnotes about the cup pad not being waterproof. Well . . . . . . I don\'t know what others have done to their coasters, but I tend to make them a little damp. At the end of the day, I found a recipe for mixing various chemicals together to make super paint. I like to do my project when I\'m a little drunk so it won\'t work. Some of the tutorials I found recommend using Mod Podge. Note: The Mod Podge is water-based, so it is not really waterproof no matter how durable it looks. If you are going to have the roller coaster painted with liquid over and over again, you should seal it with a transparent outdoor seal. Enough of that. Continue production. [ This tutorial originally appeared on my website, Welcome Home, nerd. ] Manga you don\'t mind cutting 4x4 bathroom type tiles-I used tumbling marble as I love the thick look. Make sure they are not broken, the firmness of the tiles hides the cracks well, and you may get one or two broken tiles. Mod Podge (Gloss or Matte) I am using the Minwax helmsman spray but you have a choice. It is also possible to mark a square inch with a manual pen, pencil, or other writing ( Or less or more) The area where you plan to cut and print paper or newspaper to protect the surface of the tile; Please use a damp cloth if necessary. Determine if you want the border or if you want the square to just go to the edge or, if you want to put the work on one side and have the image wrap around one side, choose your scene frame based on your edge preferences. I made a frame with some craft paper to help me isolate my scene and see it cut off from the rest of the page. ( Make sure there is nothing more amazing behind)Cut it out. If you are making a set of coasters, cut out all the images before you start so you don\'t have to stop and repeat the start. Use your foam brush to lay a thin layer of Mod Podge on the surface of the tile. Too much glue will make the paper wet and wrinkled. Work quickly and position your image Square so that it is straight and has a uniform space display or no display on all sides. Smooth the image from center to edge to remove any bubbles. I like to push the paper into the depression so it can really form on the stone. Wait about ten to fifteen minutes. Now lay a thin layer of Mod Podge on the surface and side. Wait about ten to fifteen minutes. Spread a thin layer again, wait a little more. I like to do this a few times because I think it\'s closing the gap between paper and the surface of the tile. I\'m paranoid. Spray the roller coaster according to the instructions on the acrylic seal (s). When they dry ( About ten to fifteen minutes). Finally, complete the waterproof product. This can be a spray like I use, or a liquid polyurethane that can be painted. Wait. It usually takes at least 12 hours to make sure it\'s completely dry-it shouldn\'t be tacky at all. Seriously, go out and have a drink.
