Slate roofs have been seen in Amish Country for years. Many homes and barns still have them, but quite often when they are taken down, slate becomes a perfect surface for crafters like me. Slate pieces come in many sizes. I even use broken pieces because they give my designs "attitude"!!
Slate isn't perfect. It has chipped edges, extra holes from its days on a roof, but they will break, so take your slate sign down when there is high wind or a storm. I use acrylic paint that is made for the outside and can withstand sun and wet weather.
Seasonal designs range from snowmen, Santa and gingerbread cookies to witches, brooms and pumpkins in the fall. Flowers or garden wheelbarrows for spring, palm trees and beaches in summer, even a wedding or anniversary theme. And sports designs with your favorite local and national team logo's are available.
Pick from the designs displayed, or request an idea of your own. I'll do my best to create what you are looking for. Personalize any slate with a name, date or quirky saying. Painted slates are one of a kind and make a great gift.
