Classic Monster Coasters

Have you ever been to a paint your own pottery studio?
It is a lot of fun!
(I work at one!)
I brought my artwork home to do though.
I decided to do a coaster set in the theme of Classic Monsters for my Dad.

If you don't know, the pottery painting process is very different from that of regular paints.
You use special paints called glazes.
There are many different techniques that you can use with them.
They look very different when you start painting, kind of like sidewalk chalk.
They are then fired in an oven called a kiln.
When they come out the colors are much brighter and the pieces are shiny!
