My pride and joy.....my coin coaster!

Post by bradtoulouse » Fri Dec 02, 2016 5:13 pm

Told you I'd get around to posting a pic of this....
Faithfully recreated from the two pictures in Tenyoism.....I submit for your consideration a working reproduction of the impossible to find T44 Coin Coaster....

thank you....
i used the directions from tenyoism as faithfully as i could.....it was hard to make out all the artwork but i think i got it pretty close....
i keep musing about making a second one.....it was a pain in the keister and incredibly time consuming....maybe at some point

What? Did you make did yourself??? Thought it was a coaster you bought in a souvenir shop :)

Really great... You did bake it in an oven? It looks like porcelain...

Wow...what a nice a beautiful creation Brad. The design and illusion is perfect to conceal the secret area. Did it work similar to other plastic coin coasters existed in the market ? I believe this version is much better and look more natural. Well it`s a beer mats. What can be more natural than that ! :) ;)

One of the challenges in making this was getting the flap tension correct. As per the instructions I used dental dam. Stretching and gluing it in place proved challenging and the work of someone who had eight hands would have been easier!
