I decided to make some coasters for the studio. and I wanted to use a medium that I enjoy playing with. Acrylic pour painting.
I started by doing the acrylic pour painting on watercolor paper. to make sure that my paper stayed flat. I rinsed the back side in water and then laid it on the rack. I then poured the paint on using the swipe technique ( if you want to know more about this type of painting, look on You-Tube. There are lots of videos showing the different methods)
I then used the circle from the top of the canning jar to make the circles for the inside of the coaster. after cutting them out, I glued the top of the canning jar into the ring using E6000. and let it dry for several hours. I then glued the paper ring into the top. and let it dry.
After a day of drying, I mixed up some resin and poured it on top of the paper about 1/4 inch thick. and allowed it to dry for several days.
I now have six really neat coasters for the studio.
I hope you enjoy this project.
