3.Choose which colours you would like to paint on to your coaster from the DecoArt Patio Paint range. We have chosen this specific collection of paints as they’re water resistant, perfect for this project!

4.For our coasters, we have used the Neon Paint range to achieve a bright and colourful effect. Begin to paint your chosen areas, and make sure to choose different colours for each section to get an interesting pattern.
