Pouring Medium Coasters

Create your own unique Pouring Medium Coasters!

What you will need: 

  • X-Press It Pouring Medium (available in 250ml and 1lt)
  • Drink Coasters ( wooden or marble)
  • Acrylic Ink or Fluid Acrylic Paint (at least two colours)
  • Rubber Gloves 
  • Mixing Cups 
  • Popsicle Sticks

Step 1: Pour 50ml of pouring medium into each of your cups.

Step 2: Add two squirts of ink on top of the pouring medium or about a 10c piece of fluid acrylic paint.

Step 3: Mix well with your popsicle stick. Try not to get air bubbles in when mixing. Leave cups to settle so that bubbles rise to the surface. Make sure all paint is dissolved into the pouring medium. 

Step 4: Repeat with each colour. 

Step 5: Pour one cup of colour onto your coasters. Add another colour in the middle of first colour and continue adding more into the middle of each colour. Move the coasters around to create your desired effect. The colours will appear cloudy (especially the metallic) but should dry vibrant and transparent. 

Step 6: Coat the edges of the coasters using a popsicle stick. Ensure surface is level and flat and let dry for at least 24 hours.

Will the pouring medium (once set) cope with the heat from a hot cup?

Thank you for your inquiry.

This is not considered heat resistant but from some of our limited testing it should handle low to moderate temperatures for a short amount of time.
Can be wiped down but shouldn’t be submerged in water and not dishwasher safe.
