Instructions
  1. Cover work area with plastic table cover and gather supplies.
  2. Make sure to wear protective mask, goggles and gloves when working with concrete mix.
  3. Fill small disposable containers with 1 cup of concrete mix. Follow concrete mix instructions but instead of water, add Rit Dye All-Purpose Liquid Dye in your favorite color. If going for a pastel or lighter color, dilute the dye in water prior to mixing with concrete.
  4. Repeat to create multiple concrete mixes in desired colors.
  5. Stir well with wooden popsicle stick until it’s fully mixed.
  6. Using popsicle stick, apply wet concrete mix randomly onto coaster molds to create marbling.
  7. Pour contrasting concrete color over the mold, filling it all the way up to the brim.
  8. Using popsicle stick, swirl the wet concrete in the mold. This is what will create the marbled look.
  9. Gently tap mold to let out any air bubbles.
  10. Allow the concrete to set.
  11. Once set, carefully remove concrete from mold and gently sand any rough areas.
  12. Wipe coaster clean with a damp paper towel and apply the finish with a paintbrush.
  13. Optional: apply cork to the bottom of the coasters to prevent scratching on surfaces.
