My obsession with tile coasters continues with this grey set. The plan was to use these at work and continue decorating my cubicle
This time I wanted to use my silhouette! I JUST learned how to use the trace function and it blew my mind a little! (WHA?! You mean I can cut out any image I want?!)
I found a quatrefoil design I liked and cut it out of white vinyl to fit my coaster.
(hard to see here, but...)
(a little easier to see once I removed the stuff I didn't want)
Using transfer paper I stuck it to my coaster
And then removed the transfer paper leaving my nice little stencil
I then painted it in with yellow acrylic.
The problems began when I started taking off the vinyl.
It looked great, but the paint didn't want to stick to the coaster. :(
I'm not sure what to do with this now.
1) Continue on, and then put a million coats of sealer on it and pray it turns out
2) Peel off everything including the existing paint and....
2a) Spray the coaster with some medium so that the paint will adhere to it and start over
2b) Try again with spray paint instead of acrylic
3) Ditch the idea all together because I'm considering going for a green/white/zen kinda feel for my desk
Let me know what you think. I have one half finished coaster sitting here and it's driving me nuts!
