DIY-gold-rimmed-agate-tray

When I saw this picture on pinterest I thought it was so pretty and elegant and remembered that I saw a similar Agate stone in a bazaar that I went (not sure if its agate or onyx), so I went back and bought it.. My first thought was to create the gold rimmed with gold leaf, but it was a bit expensive because I only found it in packages and not just a couple of sheets, then I found this paint called Liquid Gold (Rodin brand at Lumen store only in México) and I though this could work. Fingers Crossed! And it did! So follow this super super easy steps and you´ll get a perfect tray. Enjoy!

ESPAÑOL>>> Cuando vi esta imagen en pinterest pensé que era súper bonita y elegante y recordé que había visto piedra tipo Ágata una en un bazar que visité, así que regresé a comprarla.(No estoy segura que sea ágata o Onyx) Mi primer pensamiento fue hacer el contorno con hoja de oro pero era muy caro porque solo la conseguí en paquetes de varias hojas, entonces vi esta pintura llamada Oro Liquido de marca Rodin en Lumen y pensé que funcionaria Cruce mis dedos! y así fue! Así que sigue estos super super sencillos pasos y tendrás una charolita perfecta.

The first step is to clean very well your stone getting rid of any dust it might have, then with a fine brush apply the liquid gold all around the rimmed area carefully not to paint the flat surface of the stone. This type of paint dried so quickly so in a few minutes was ready!

El primer paso es lavar muy bien tu piedra para quitarle todo el polvo que pueda tener, después con un pincel fino aplica el Oro Liquido por todo el contorno de la piedra con cuidado de no pintar la parte plana de la piedra. Este tipo de pintura seco bastante rápido así que en minutos ya estaba lista! IMG_0337
