I did these coasters for round 2 of the owl swap, and just thought I'd share. Tell me what you think!
They're made from 4in x 4in marble tiles I picked up at home depot. I did acrylic gel medium transfers using images copied out of Dover's Birds of Prey coloring book(http://store.doverpublications.com/0486259897.html
), then coated the tiles with Varathane polyurathane wood sealant. I had a lot of trouble with bubbles in the sealant, unfortunately, but you can't see them in these pictures. Finally, I glued cork onto the backs!
