Decoration Ideas for my Concrete Coaster Kit

Grey concrete coasters made using Gem's Concrete Gems Make your Own Concrete Coaster Kit

The kit enables you to make some lovely concrete coasters as pictured above. The raw industrial look is really beautiful, however if you would like to decorate them, here are a couple of ideas:

Stencil

For the first design, I have used a stencil that I made using A4 Mylar stencil sheets. I used a craft knife to cut out the design. I taped the design onto the coaster and painted it using acrylic paint in Metallic Copper.

The finished thing looks really good. I love the copper colour against the grey of the concrete and the stencil is really effective.

Masking Tape

Using masking tape is an alternative way to ‘create’ a stencil effect. For this coaster, I taped off a stripe on the coaster, and then painted it with green acrylic paint. It dries really quickly so once it was dry I taped off another stripe and then a third as shown below.

The finished coaster has come out really well again.
