SPiT on a Coaster

I decided to make some coasters using tiles and a bit of Unicorn SPiT!

We want to help you DIY, so some of the materials in this post are linked to sellers. Just so you know, Hometalk may collect a small share of sales from the links on this page.

Get all the materials for this project:

I had a couple 4x4 travertine tiles and Unicorn SPiT handy so I just used what I had on hand.
I didn't do anything to the tiles to prep them, I just dripped the SPiT directly on the tile.
I laid pieces of a drop cloth that I had cut to fit on each tile and smoothed it around a bit. Do not overwork this or it will become muddy.
When I picked up the plastic it leaves some interesting designs. I did notice it left a bare spot in the bottom corner of the left tile.
I used the SPiT still on the plastic to fill in the bare spot.
Once they dried I sealed them with a spray on enamel.
Add some felt stickers to the bottom or just make feet with a hot glue gun. And that's it, you have yourself some colorful coasters! I hope you like them!

    This is my first introduction to Unicorn Spit. Would this paint work with rubber stamps? I want to paint some tiles but I want to make designs with some rubber stamps.

    What sealer did you use? I am using Mod Podge to decoupage on coasters and trivets. I need it to be waterproof and high heat resistant.. How lo g does it take to fully cure. Thanks
