  • … covers objects with a velvety-soft surface structure, so that you just want to keep feeling it. The acrylic paint with the soft-touch effect transforms different objects into true hand charmers. Surfaces get a new dimension: Paint becomes tactile.

How it is done:

  • Remove any dust, dirt and cork residue from the cork coasters. Then prime the coasters white using a paint roller and white acrylic paint.
  • Allow to dry completely. Use masking tape of different width to stick lines onto the cork coasters; they can be easily peeled off again and create clean edges.
  • Now use any acrylic soft colours to fill in the individual areas with a brush. Before using a different colour, simply rinse out the brush briefly and dry it. You can then draw fine patterns onto the different areas using an acrylic marker. For this, thoroughly shake the marker before use, pump it carefully and first write on a piece of paper.
