Nature has a wonderful way of repeating itself. For example, the rings of a tree are remarkably similar to the rings in a beautiful slice of agate. While perusing through the Walnut Hollow catalog a few weeks back, I noticed they carried some beautiful wood slices big enough for side tables. As I looked at them I wondered how I could paint them to look like agate slices, or close enough to get the feel of a slice. After much research and a few failed attempts I remembered an old video I made years ago showing people how to make malachite obelisks. Whew! A little tweaking and I was off to the races painting huge agate slices on wood and turning them into these “rockin” side tables. Get it? Of course you do! Pull out some old techniques and make them new again and don’t forget to Make Your Mark!
