Not Your Grandma’s Doily Coaster #3 | Another Coaster Friday

BIG #3! Today I am doing the third coaster using a silicone doily mold and clay! It’s a great craft idea for your home decor! You can customize the colors to go with your personal style! It’s an easy clay craft with beautiful results!

Materials list:
Similar Doily mold:
Stamp pad:
Air dry clay:
Green paint:
(if you use multi-surface paint, you can skip the varnish)
Silver paint:

Here is the video, so you can see exactly how I made it:


1.  I pulled out my mold for yet another doily coaster.

Here are the previous coasters.

 2.  I pulled off a chunk of air dry clay and started to flatten it.

3.  I used my brayer/roller to more evenly flatten it and get it large enough accommodate the mold.

4.  I placed the silicone mold, pattern side down, onto the clay.

5.  I used my brayer to make sure I had and even impression. 

6.  I used my craft knife to trim off the excess.

7.  I dipped my finger into some water and used it to smooth the edge, while the silicone mold was still on the clay.

8.  I carefully removed the mold.

9.  I smoothed any rough edges and then I let it dry.  Once the one side was dry, I flipped it over and peeled the foil off the back of the clay.  DO NOT PEEL THE CLAY OFF OF THE FOIL!  You risk breaking your piece.  I laid it back side up and let it dry the rest of the way.

10.  I painted the dry piece with a metallic green.

11.  Once dry, I used a brush with just a little bit of silver paint.  I gently brushed it over the raised areas.  It helps to hold your brush sideways.

It helps set off the raised area.


 Once dry, I used a varnish to seal everything.  I did multiple coats.  Then I let it dry.

Here is the finished piece.  The silver really blended with the green, when I put the varnish on it.  I would suggest doing two coats of the silver before adding the varnish.

That’s it! Thanks for stopping by! Remember: Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!

  1. Hi Mona!
    I do a lot of crafts too, but I've never used resin. I have made doilies though… you might like my doily thread earrings….
    I wanted to let you know that your Pinterest profile still has your blogspot craftklatch address? And I'm not sure what Klatch is— is that your name?


    • Thank you Liberty! I haven't changed it yet because I was hoping to migrate over to WordPress, but I'm still waiting to hear from Pinterest about how it will effect my past pins. So I haven't changed it yet. Klatch is a german word. Like a Coffee Klatch, but instead it's a Craft Klatch.
