Blogaversary and Coasters!

Today is the one year 
anniversary of Resin Crafts blog!
Thank you to everyone who has supported this blog through comments, emails and project ideas!
There is so much more to show you. 
Year two will be jam packed!  Stay tuned!
 So, make yourself a beverage and while you are at it give some thought to making these cool coasters.
 One of the first art classes I taught was about turning these plain tiles into artistic coasters.  Back them, I used several layers of liquid varnish as my sealer.  This was effective, but I found that glasses would stick to the surface.  Wish I knew about Envirotex Lite back then!
 Here is what I did for these tiles.  I used mod podge to cover my tiles with tissue.
 Then I painted the edges.
Finally, I applied one glaze coat of Envirotex Lite and I have this super shiny coaster surface that is durable, waterproof and UV resistant!  I can leave these on the patio without fear of rain!
