Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 (4×4 inch) ceramic wall tiles
  • Nail polish in three complementary colors
  • 2 plastic plates
  • 3 to 4 toothpicks
  • Paper towel
  • Pitcher of warm water (optional)
  • Latex (or similar) gloves
  • Krylon ColorMaster Clear/Transparent spray
  • Felt pads

Instructions

  1. Put on your gloves. Carefully pour warm water into a plate.
  2. Add drops of nail polish. Try adding it close to the water, so the nail polish floats on the water instead of sinking to the bottom.
  3. Swirl the nail polish with a toothpick.
  4. Dip the tile into the swirled nail polish. Press into the water, allowing the design to cover the edges.
  5. Shake off the excess water. Let dry on paper towel.
  6. Continue adding more nail polish until all of the tiles are covered. If the water becomes muddied with dry polish, you can add new water between tiles.
  7. Let tiles dry for half an hour before handling.
  8. After 24 hours, spray with Krylon ColorMaster Clear/Transparent. This will protect the tiles from water damage. Use the spray in a ventilated area, or better yet, use it outside.
  9. After 24 hours, spray with Krylon ColorMaster Clear/Transparent. This will protect the tiles from water damage. Use the spray in a ventilated area, or better yet, use it outside.
  10. Add felt pads to the bottom four corners of each tile.
  11. Display the finished coasters or gift them to someone special!
