INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Clean 3" glass squares with rubbing alcohol or warm soapy water. Let dry.
  2. Once dry, use cosmetic foam wedges to lightly smooth Chalkboard Paint onto glass squares. Dry completely and apply second or third coats as needed.
  3. Let cure for four days. Bake in oven at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool before removing from oven
  4. (Optional) Edge glass square with gold paint pen for little glimmer.
  5. Paint four wood blocks: one each of Dark Scarlet, Pumpkin Patch, Leprechaun, and Blue Bird (or four Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic colors of your choice). Let dry.
  6. After drying, lightly wet paper towel and rub Gold Rush Metallic Lustre over surface. (Simply add water to thin out if too thick.)
  7. Spray wood blocks with Multi-Purpose Spray Sealer and let dry.
  8. After drying, glue chalkboard glass square in center of each wood bevel.
  9. Cut felt into four 4” squares. Glue backing to back of coasters.
  10. Lightly rub chalkboard surface with white chalk to condition surface.

HELPFUL HINTS

For best results, load wide end of sponge wedge with paint. Add touch of water to paint for smoother coverage without streaking. Use two or three thin coats and let dry thoroughly between coats.

When writing on coasters, for thinner, more controlled chalk lines, liquid chalk pens work great.
