Guest Post: Cork mountain coaster tutorial 16 Jul

This week Diana from Pygmy Cloud shares with us her simple little tutorial to make these fun mountain coasters. A fun and functional way to protect your tables using our new range of Fred Aldous cork sheet. Cork is water resistant, provides thermal insulation and is durable – perfect coaster making material!

Materials:
3mm cork sheet
paint brush
white acrylic paint
X-Acto knife
metal safety rule

Instructions:

1. Draw two triangle shapes measuring 14cm x 16cm x 16cm onto the cork sheet. Using the safety rule and X-Acto knife, cut the cork to shape.
