Trace the outline of your coaster on the back of your coloring page and then cut them out giving a little more space than the line.
Place a layer of MP on your tiles and wait about 1 minute before putting your coloring page on design side up. Then place a smooth layer of MP on the top of your picture. Using your finger smooth the edge so that the little extra folds down.
Wait at least 20 minutes or until it's tacky and then place another coat. Repeat this step 2 more times for a total 4 coats.
Admire your new coasters! It's best to make sure they are completely dry and no longer tacky before using. Also adding a piece of felt to the bottom will protect your wooden furniture from scratches. To add felt. First trace the coaster, then cut slightly inside the line so the felt is slightly smaller. Then add MP to the bottom of your coaster. Wait 1 minute then place the felt under your coaster, let dry and it is read to use!
