When the discussion turns to books for kids, comic books often get overlooked or even disparaged. But comics were a huge part of my childhood and are certainly a major reason I became an avid reader at an early age. Needless to say, I am a big fan when comic book art breaks free from between the covers. David from Cheltenham Road
is all about retro coasters, his Etsy shop
is full of them. He shared his methods with Mod Podge Rocks
, using vintage comics for his graphics. The great thing about using comics in design is their versatility. You can go colorful, black and white, old school, modern--you name it, there is a comic out there that will fit the bill.
This project is pretty straightforward and uses an unusual but readily accessible material for the base. Choose your comic, break out the Mod Podge and you'll have custom coasters before you know it.
