make it yourself

To make circles for the coasters use either a round cookie or biscuit cutter or even a glass. Make sure it cuts a circle large enough to hold a glass.
Use flowers or leaves to make imprints in the clay. Both real and artificial will work.
What to do:
If the flower leaves behind seeds or debris just use a small brush or even a toothpick to clean off the clay.
Let the clay dry competely before painting. To speed up the air-dry process you can put the clay into a very low temp oven 200°
Wanting to stay with a natural look, I painted the coasters with a tan shade of chalk paint.
am going to use watercolors for my set of coasters. Acrylic, chalk, or paint pens would work too.
After the paint was dried I sealed the coasters with this clear glaze. It gives clay projects a real pottery gloss, great DIY trick!
Add tiny felt, rubber, or cork adhesive pads to the back of the coasters to prevent scratching.
