Firework Coasters

June 29, 2017

Bring the fireworks indoors for the 4th of July with this explosive tutorial from our #DAMCreative Educators.

Here’s what it takes:

  • Glazed tiles
  • Permanent markers
  • A spray bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
  • A pipette
  • A lighter



  1. Create a colorful pattern on your tile with markers. Don’t worry about being too neat!
  2. Using a pipette, cover the surface of the tile with alcohol.
  3. Use the lighter to set fire to the alcohol. Once all of the alcohol is burned off, the flame will extinguish.
  4. To add a little extra flare, spray tile with alcohol from the bottle to create small spots.
  5. Run the flame of your lighter over the surface of the tile to ensure that these spots are set.
