Use painted tiles to create unique and colourful coasters decorated with your grandchildren’s drawings or hand prints
Watch the how-to video here:
Step 1: Preparation
Protect your table with dust sheets and ask your child to choose a selection of their favourite hand-drawn pictures.
Step 2: Painting your tiles
Paint your tiles using a tester pot colour of your choice. You may need two coats for a nice even coverage. Ensure you have a pot of water handy to clean your brushes.
Step 3: Carefully apply PVA
Apply a coat of PVA glue to your tiles.
Step 4: Sticking your drawings
Carefully stick your cut out drawings to the tiles.
Step 5: Sealing your drawings
Brush a thin coat of PVA glue over the top of your drawing. Be careful not to brush the glue over the image too many times, as your drawing may smudge.
Step 6: Allow to dry
Let the glue dry until it looks clear – this usually takes around a couple of hours.
Step 7: Turn your tile into a coaster
On the other side of the tile, stick a felt pad in each corner.
