Pattern - The 19th Hole!

  • Preparation
  • 1. Drill holes slightly larger than nail heads through top edge of each coaster. Apply sealer to board and coasters. Sand lightly. Use Napa Red to paint center area of scroll board; use Antique White to base top and bottom sections.
  • 2. Print out patterns.
  • 3. Paint one side of coaster Antique White. Base other side and cut edges Leaf Green. Working one coaster at a time, apply second coat; while wet, use dirty brush to blend Hauser Dk. Green on two coasters, then while still wet, blend in Hauser Lt. Green highlights. For remaining two coasters ("Tee Time" and "Hole in One") use pattern as guide to float Hauser Dk. Green dividing background from foreground; float Hauser Lt. Green highlights on lower third section.
  • 4. Transfer basic pattern lines. (Transfer details as needed.) For name, hand paint or use Microsoft Word, Imprint MT Shadow font, size 72, and Word Art to "bend" name. Transfer name over crossed clubs after they've been painted.
  • Artist's Tip

  • Banners on Coasters
  • 1. Base Napa Red; shade Black Plum and highlight Country Red. Line lettering Antique White.
  • "Tee Time" Coaster
  • 1. Base tee Espresso; use dirty brush to dry brush Cocoa highlights. Let dry. Float additional Cocoa highlights.
  • 2. Undercoat golf ball with Gesso for opaque coverage. Base Soft Blue. Dampen ball with clean water; use liner and thinned Baby Blue to dot dimples. Shade ball Baby Blue; use ultra-sheer Payne's Grey to deepen shading. Use filbert to dry brush Snow White highlights.
  • "Hole in One" Coaster
  • 1. Shade Hauser Dk. Green behind hole and highlight Hauser Lt. Green in front of hole. Double-load deerfoot stippler with Espresso and Cocoa and stipple soil band above tin cup; use dirty brush and touch of Antique White to tap highlight along top edge of soil. Base tin cup Slate Grey; shade Graphite and highlight Snow White along top edge.
  • 2. Paint ball in same manner as "Tee Time" Coaster.
  • 3. Base putter Grey Sky and stripes Uniform Blue; use sheer Graphite to shade and Snow White to highlight. Deepen shading at top of putter head. Use #1 round and Snow White to dry brush highlight down center of shaft. Use liner and thinned Graphite to add grooved detailing lines on face of putter head.
  • Golf Bag Coaster
  • 1. Base bag Napa Red; shade Black Plum and deepen with Payne's Grey. Float back-to-back Country Red highlight down center of bag's body. Use #2 round and Country Red to dry brush remaining highlights; use dirty brush and tiny touch of Antique White to strengthen highlights on front of collar. Use liner and Payne's Grey to paint stitch lines, handles, and studs; dry brush touch of Grey Sky highlights on handles and studs.
  • 2. Follow putter instructions from "Hole in One" Coaster to paint irons and shafts, and faceplate of wood head. Add Napa Red stripes on iron shafts. Base wood heads Cocoa; shade Espresso. Paint Uniform Blue stripes at base of wood heads. Use #4 shader and Antique White to dry brush highlights; dry brush additional Snow White highlights.
  • Shoes and Beret Coaster
  • 1. Shoes: Use Antique White to base tongues; shade sheer Espresso. Use liner and thinned Cocoa to add detailing. Use #2 shader and touch of Snow White to dry brush highlights. Use Gesso to undercoat white areas for opaque coverage. Base white areas Snow White; shade Baby Blue. Use Napa Red to base toes and back of shoes; shade Black Plum. Use liner to add Antique White detailing dots on toe sections. Use #4 shader and brush mix of Snow White and Antique White to lightly dry brush highlights on toes and back of shoes. Use Lamp Black to base saddle areas, inside shoes, soles, and heels; highlight Slate Grey.
  • 2. Beret: Use deerfoot stippler and brush mix of Antique White and Cocoa to stipple pom-pom; use dirty brush and Snow White to stipple highlights along top. Use sheer Espresso to shade. Use Napa Red to base outside of hat and brim. Use Country Red to highlight outer edge of brim and to float back-to-back highlight down center of hat. Base inside of hat Lamp Black; highlight with touch of Slate Grey. Use thinned Leaf Green to paint green vertical and horizontal stripes. Float Payne's Grey shading on hat. Use liner and thinned Baby Blue to paint pinstripes and small diagonal lines where Leaf Green stripes intersect.
  • Coasters and Scroll Board
  • 1. Use #2 round and Antique White to paint outer edges of each coaster.
  • 2. Use glaze wash brush to float Cocoa along outer edges of top and bottom sections of scroll board. Follow putter instructions from "Hole in One" Coaster to paint metal areas of crossed clubs. Base handles Napa Red; shade Black Plum and use #1 round and touch of Slate Grey to dry brush highlights.
  • 3. Use liner and #1 round to base letters Leaf Green; shade Hauser Dk. Green. Add Snow White highlight lines.
  • Finishing
  • 1. Apply several sealer coats to wood surfaces. Attach saw tooth hanger to back top of scroll board. Position coasters on center area of scroll board. Use pencil to mark through holes. Carefully tap in nails at markings, making sure not to penetrate board entirely. Center and glue cork coasters to back of wood coasters; apply pressure with heavy book or other object until dry. Hang coasters from nails.
  • Tip
  • 1. Make additional coasters, if desired, to hang two to three coasters on each nail. Use any of the designs to make a matching clock, enlarging pattern as needed. Or you can use any of the coaster designs to make a personalized golf bag tag. Or how about using the same design to make a personalized floor cloth.
