Mad About Malachite

Totally obsessed with malachite, and it's not because green is my favorite color, or that emerald is Pantone's color of the year. Its the pattern and the detail (ok and the color too), and I want malachite in my house and on my body. Every piece looks so unique and so fancy! It's really giving me an itch to try some kind of faux malachite painting technique like this amazing desk  that Jenny from little green notebook did, but on a much smaller scale, like maybe a box like the one above or a tray. I ordered this book from the 90's called The New Paint Magic, that is full of faux painting techniques, including one on malachite! I'll keep you posted on that project.

For now here are some malachite items to swoon over, maybe sell your car and buy that Monique Lhuillier dress! I wonder if they have a technique for faux malachite tie dying?  I think I would be willing to give it a whirl.
