I am an advocate of homemade decor & accessories. The other day I was pondering the use of lab glass slides that my cousin left behind. I tried memory-glass-sort-of jewelry with them, but it wasn’t my thing. I made coasters with them, instead.
I put 2 & 2 together and made use of a gold Pebeo glass paint, felt, E6000 Glue, and a few glass slides. The result? Handmade personalized coasters.
Just grab a sheet of felt, 3 lab slides and Pebeo Vitrail paint (which is to be used for decorative reasons only). Paint geometric shapes on the 3 slides, each with a different pattern. When they’re dry use small dabs of E6000 glue to adhere the face (which is the side you painted on) to felt. This way you’ll get a smooth coaster surface. Try to dab the small dots of glue on spots with gold paint so the glue won’t show and give you a bad finishing.let the glue dry, then cut the felt to size. You can add ribbons and more embellishment if you like.
