Put it on the slate!

Hello blog friends and welcome.  

It's a short blog post and a short tutorial today.  I'm a big believer in using my stamps- and crafting stash - for uses other that paper crafts and when I spotted these slate coasters I knew I wanted to use them for home decor.  This is how they came out - 

Here's how I did it - with tissue paper, Staz-On and clear floor wax.  




The clear wax makes a great adhesive/polish.  It's acrylic based and is very tough - it's made to be walked on, after all.  The first batch I made into wall hangings by gluing a loop of garden twine onto the reverse (I used epoxy putty - hot glue was too easy to pull away) and we sold them at a charity fundraiser. They'd make great small gifts and at £5 for a set of four coasters, they're very inexpensive as well.

I hope you like them - and if so, please let me know.  I'd also love it if you subscribe to my YouTube channel or like my Facebook page.   Thank you for visiting - and please come back soon!
