Turn your favorite comics into coasters!  I wanted to add something up-beat that would get people to smile to my living room without going overboard and coming off as tacky or cheesy, so I came up with this.  This project looks great and is super easy and low-cost, so there is no reason not to try it out!

Step 1: Getting supplies

To start, you just need to choose the comic(s) you want to use.  You can get them from a comic book, newspaper, or print them from the internet.  I chose to print mine from the internet.

Also, you need to get 1 ceramic tile for each coaster you want to make.  I used 4.25" tiles I got for 16 cents each at my local hardware store.
For better water-proofing, I'd use Mod Podge Outdoor. It is made to hold up in humid conditions.
looks great :) i was wondering where you found your comics at online?
Looks really good! I'm wondering if I might make one using clear nail polish as the sealer. I have found modge podge too fragile to last for more than a short time. Seems you must have bought the "magic bottles" ;0) Thanks for posting
Mine are only used lightly in a very dry climate - maybe that's why they are holding up for me. <br><br>If you want something proven to be durable I might try spraying it with polyurethane spray.
Love the entire concept.
These are amazing, rated 5*!Well done!!!
This is such a fun idea. I love it. I have one question, I live in a humid area. Any idea how Mod Podge would hold up against sweat from the glasses? Thanks for the craft idea.
The MOd Podge makes it waterproof but I don't live in a humid area so if the comics are of great value I may test it first. Mine hold up great even when a little wet.
I didn't realize Mod Podge would make it waterproof. I will definitely use copies and not originals though, just in case. Thanks for the reply.
i know a few XKCD comics that would be perfect for this. and by a few, i mean ALL
Very cool!
