Create Your Own Coating Design with Spray PaintWednesday, January 06, 2016
Today, I'll be sharing some fun DIY projects I did at home using spray paint. I've gathered all of my clear glass vases as well as some glass containers, I've found in the kitchen, and then coated it with metallic spray paint.
I did a little twist to this project as compared to the previous project I did last year. I've added some fun designs on the coating of my vases & containers using painter's tape and rubber bands. Below are photo illustrations on how I did it.
To measure the distance of the coating alignment on the container pictured below, I cut small portions of the painter's tape and place it on top of the covered area. I then removed it, once I'm happy with the distance, before proceeding with the paint job.
I've wanted to add a nice wavy design on the vase found on the top-left corner of the photo below. I've used a rubber band to do this. I did adjustments on the rubber band to accomplished my desired design and carefully covered the top with painter's tape.
The last project is a bonus. I didn't use spray paint to do this, instead I've used krylon gold leafing pen to draw circles around the container and use the finish product as a paint brush holder.
If you're wondering what spray paint I've used with this project, it's the Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Color and Rust-Oleum Metallic Spray in Gold.
So there you have it!
Note: When using spray paint, be sure to wait in between coats, which takes about 1-2 hours, before spraying the next coat to let it dry. After you're happy with the result, let the spray paint fully dry within 24 hours.
