Agate Coasters

At Christmas I wanted to give my work team something fun and useful with a little dash of glamour.  The school colors where we work are purple and gold and I remembered that awesome little tub of hypnotizing gold paint Desiree from Heirloom Paper introduced me to.  I also remembered the beautiful agate coasters she had at her home during her crafting night and how she painted them with the awesome gold paint.

I found these purple agate coasters and they came four to a set which was perfect for our four member team.

Using a thin paintbrush, I painted just the edges of the agate coaster to give them each a little pop.  The best thing about this paint is how much of a shine it gives you and how close to metal it actually looks. To increase the shine factor, you can even add a coat of clear gloss.

The set came with four little, self adhesive, plastic bumpers to put on each coaster.

Adding the gold paint really upped the “fancy” factor on these.  Thank you Desiree for inspiring this project!
