Faux Malachite Coffee Table

Turn a thrift store coffee table into an amazing malachite showstopper with my special faux malachite technique.
Watch how to do it here!
Here's a list of things I used:
Americana Glazing Medium
Americana Acrylics in Sea Aqua, Sea Breeze, Sweet Mint, Forest Green, Evergreen & Antique Teal
E-6000 Glaze Coat
Thrift Store Coffee Table
Americana Decor Metallics in Vintage Brass
Small torch or long arm lighter
I love how easy this is once you get the hang of it. If you don't like your first attempt, just paint over it and start again until you get it just right!
With all of my stuff piled on top!

Materials used for this project:

  • Americana Acrylic Paint   (Amazon.com)

      I see tables (perfect for this) at almost every 2nd hand store. You'll find something.
