I choose to make them all different. Let them dry for 30 minutes.
You can mix the bright colors with white to create different tones.
Draw the outlines of the patterns you want to use on your coaster.
I choose the fruits kiwi, orange, lemon and Star fruit as my designs.
I used a darker color to paint the patterns.
