Introduction: Superman Cork Coasters

I used 1/4 inch cork and made a trio of SUPER coasters for my super friend, Mike. 

Each coaster measures 4 inches by 3 1/2 inches.
I made a custom stencil for the shield (you can read how to do that here). 
I used a sponge brush to dab the paint onto the coasters. 
Each coaster got several coats of clear acrylic seal, for water repelling

YES. Cork coasters are where it's at. These look great. Mike is a lucky guy. Super lucky.

He has a bit of an attachment to Superman, even has the shield tattooed on his chest. I gave them to him for Father's Day...he LOVED them!
