DIY Traditional Coaster painting ideas for 2021

I had this idea in my mind for over few months, but I was skeptical to start the coaster project. But the results turned out amazing. If you are a DIY - person you must try this out. 

It is such a interesting and usable project which you could use in your day to day life. 
Here are few ideas to spice up your coaster with Madhubani paintings...

  • Once the paint is dried, trace out the traditional madhubani designs onto the wooden board. You may draw the design onto a paper and then trace out the design into the coaster with a carbon paper
  • Start painting with your desired choice of colours. I have used Neon colours for painting.

  • Apply a layer of modpodge or varnish to protect your painting from dust and to make them water proof.
