A New Idea

With a slew of shows coming up, I've been hard at work coming up with new ideas for things I can do with my photos. One idea that I have been obsessed with for a while is coasters. It seemed like a pretty simple concept at first but it has turned out to be easier said then done! Coasters are tricky since, obviously, they have to be water-proof so slapping some photo paper on a piece of cork would be a dismal failure. After much trial-and-error involving laminating machines, polyurethane (regular and spray), mod podge, clear acrylic spray, etc, I think I've come up with something that works. I'm still testing out the durability and if this final batch passes the tests, I will be thrilled. Stay tuned!PS Any ideas for images that would make great coasters, please let me know!
