Coastin' in style: DIY terracotta saucer coasters

28 Nov 2023

Who said coasters are just for inside? These little cuties are made from terracotta pot saucers and can be left outside all year round. Simply give each saucer a coat of Resene Aquapel & Terracotta Sealer all over then paint your saucers in your favourite Resene colours. Once dry take a fine paint brush and add some creative patterns. This a project the whole family can get involved in, and they also make a great gift for a friend or family member!

You will need:


Step 1: Give each of your saucers a coat of Resene Aquapel & Terracotta Sealer.

Step 2: Paint your saucers using a testpot paintbrush in your chosen Resene paint colours. We used Resene Moonbeam, Resene Indian Ink, Resene Alabaster and Resene Paper Doll.

Step 3: Using a fine paintbrush to paint your designs onto the saucers. You can use our image as a guide or get creative and design your own!
