This DIY mosaic drink coaster craft art project includes ALL MATERIALS and SUPPLIES to make 4 drink coasters.
You get EVERYTHING you need for this craft project! Solo artists, beginner artists, and anyone who doesn't feel artistic can do this activity because it does not require glass cutting.
Since there are 4 coasters in a set, this art kit makes for a great craft activity to do with a group of 1-4 people. This really is a fun and functional art project for homeschoolers, children ages 4+ (with adult supervision), and adults.
I'm always here for questions too!
• Skill level: Beginner/easy.
• Artists: 1-4 people.
• Ages: 4+ (with adult supervision/assistance).
• Activity spans 1-3 days (includes 1-2 hours of hands-on activity + 5-24 hours of wait time).
• Mosaic glass colors: Multi-color.
• Mosaic glass shape options: Square OR mixed shapes (mix of squares, rhombus, and triangles).
1) Q: Which mosaic glass option should I choose so that we have enough to make all 4 coasters?
A: Any mosaic glass option will be sufficient! Choosing the regular bag is all you need to make all 4 coasters. People often choose the EXTRA option so they have more creative options to choose from.
Q: Does the mixed shaped bag contain all shapes including squares?
Q: Is this a good art kit for my 4 and 6 year old?
A: 4-6 year olds do have fun with this activity, but it requires adult supervision due to the sharp glass, glue, and grouting procedure. It is highly recommended the adult handles the entire grouting process from start to finish for young children.
Q: Is this a good art kit for adults?
A: Absolutely! SO many adults have purchased this kit for themselves, for their friends, for team building at work, and for their family! There are many glowing reviews from adults!
Q: Should I add the Wheeled Tile Nipper...do I need that tool?
A: You do NOT need this tool to make your coasters! This tool is optional for those who’d like to get more creative by cutting the mosaic squares in half etc. Mosaic pros use this tool every day...it’s a staple in the mosaic art world and some people like to add this to their kit to get the full mosaic experience.
Q: Is there a shelf life for the kit? How soon should we get to work on our kit?
A: The wet grout does have a shelf life (in the enclosed tin). Please get to work on your new kit within 60 days of delivery. This will ensure the grout is still soft and fresh. Some kits come with dry grout which you will see in an enclosed clear baggy. The shelf life of this grout is extended 120 days.
