Painting on Slate
by: Cheryl

Hi Norma,

To paint on slate just wash in warm soapy water, rinse well and then paint to your heart's content.

Finish with a varnish. If you're leaving the natural slate, rather than basecoating the whole surface, the slate will appear darker once varnished.

Hope this helps!
