Slate That Looks Painted


  • 1 piece of slate any size or shape you want
  • rub on transfers
  • Modge Podge sealer


  1. If you are like me, I haven't learned how to paint but love the look. Take a slate and go to craft store and find the rub on transfers that you like, I love bears thus my selection.
  2. Ad

  3. Just follow instructions on transfers which consists of rubbing over transfer with Popsicle stick.
  4. When you have added all that you would like on slate, just seal with Modge Podge to protect the rub-ons and make a shiny coat.
  5. This can also be done on wood although I would recommend you put a coat of paint on the wood before the rub-on transfer.

I love this look and yes, it looks like it's painted.

Where could I possible find some slate at? Where did you get yours?

I have got to find me some, these would make great Christmas gifts.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us.
