‘We would like to have some kind of coasters. You surely can make something good’ – they said, giving me a free hand.
I was thinking some kind of decoupage but I didn’t want to use the old ‘cut a flower out of tissue paper’ method. (Someone please tell me why do they sell table napkins in craft stores – it’s ok, it works well with decoupage but why can’t it be produced in a better size and form?)
I believe that hand made gifts should be practical as well and they should fit to the owner, so I considered:
- material: be hard and durable enough;
- surface: somewhat water resistant;
- colour, pattern: nice, unique and acceptable for men as well.
