DIY Watercolor Agate Slices + Tutorials

Making Watercolor Agate Slices

Happy Wednesday Everybody! Today I want to share something colorful that I did a few weeks back but didn’t have the chance to blog about. I tried my hand at painting agate slices with watercolor. Agates are semi-precious gemstones from the Quartz family with bands in stunning colors. A quick google search gave me a few tutorials but they were so helpful, and I stumbled on some videos as well. I have linked them below if you want to check it out!

I decided to go with a pink, blue and violet scheme. I painted a few smaller pieces until I was satisfied with it. The materials that I used here are listed below with the affiliated links for Amazon:

  1. Canson Watercolor Paper Pad in X-Large
  2. Dr. Ph. Martin’s Radiant Concentrated Water Color Bottles give the most vivid colours.
  3. Finetec Artist Mica Watercolor Paint to add the subtle copper details
  4. Daler-Rowney Aquafine Brush – Round Sable Size 3
  5. Sumi Calligraphy Liquid Ink for the brush calligraphy

For added texture I followed the tutorials and used coarse salt from the kitchen! Once I felt confident enough to paint this A5 sized card with “You Rock” brush calligraphy. I think it turned out quite nice in the end!
