The other day I had all of my paint stuff out (not for any specific project, it was out because nothing had been picked up from the last craft session) and I was sitting on the couch reading blogs, staring at this bottle of green paint. Then it hit me like a light bulb. MALACHITE!
There are so many awesome faux malachite projects out there and I've been itching to try some. I had a wood box and a pile of old Ikea mats sitting next to me. I started with the mats and this is what I came up with
I don't think the black and white art will stay, I just whipped it up so I could show you all the mat in use.
Its not perfect, but it got me to cross something off my craft bucket list.
I also painted a box for my husbands dresser, but she wasn't photo ready yet. Her debut will have to wait for now.
If you google faux malachite you'll be amazing at the awesome projects people have done. Go forth and paint malachite.
Happy weekend everyone!
