    Default Top coat for cup coasters? What to use

    Iím a newbie, this looks like a great forum 😁

    I have a problem, Iíve got some acrylic painted cup coasters that Iíve coated with car varnish (sprayed). On testing, theyíre coping really well with the heat but are chipping.

    Not the right solution. Iím wondering if anyone has any advice on what coating I should use that will deal with hot mugs of tea being thrown onto them?

    The tester is my son, who is heavy handed!

    Many thanks for reading, Tina 😊😊

    You could try Rust-Oleum Painters Touch ultra matte clear needs several coats though

    Is the varnish chipping off the paint or is it the paint chipping? if the paint is coming off whatever the coaster is made from then you need to sort out a better way to apply the paint. If the varnish is chipping off then try not varnishing and using a gloss paint.
