    Step 0 Example
  2. Print and cut the provided hexagon pattern to the size you would like your coasters to be. Trace the hexagon onto the leather. Cut using sharp scissors.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Using a flat brush, paint the coasters in White.
    Step 2 Example
  4. Mix together White with a very small amount of Black. Wet your sea sponge and squeeze out all of the excess moisture. Lighten pounce the sea sponge with a little paint randomly on the coaster. Pounce in the same general direction for a streaky look.
    Step 3 Example
  5. Mix a little bit more black into the previous mix with a little bit of water, make this mix just slightly too dark. Using a round brush, lightly make random streaks of mix over sponged areas. Once it has dried, brush a thin coat of White over the surface.
