14. Once the tile has dried completely, spray it with a coat of clear acrylic gloss coating.


15. After the acrylic spray has dried, apply 4 felt pads to the bottom of the ceramic tile. Place one in each corner. If you do not have felt pads, you can use regular felt or cork.

Do You Have to Spray DIY Tile Coasters with Clear Acrylic Gloss Coating?

I would strongly suggest that you spray the finished tile with a coat of waterproof clear acrylic gloss coating. If you do not, the coaster will likely stick to your cup or mug. It can fall off after you pick up your drink or you may have to pry the coaster off.


The spray will also make your DIY tile coaster waterproof. This is important. If they are not sprayed with the coating, your beverages will leave ring stains.
