Gifts for the gardener
Got a friend who’s a green thumb? They’ll love this! Common terracotta pots and garden tools become stunning gifts with enamel spray paints. Go for a two-tone effect on your pots by mixing and matching colours. Make the saucers of one pot match the colour on another one and vice versa. Use a sealer on the inside of the pots so moisture in the soil doesn’t ruin your handiwork. Use the same paint on the handles of a set of gardening tools for a coordinated set.
If your green thumb is a bit more on the sophisticated side, make the pots a bit classier with a stainless steel finish spray paint. Again, seal the pots on the inside and apply a fast-drying primer to ensure better adhesion of the top coats.
Ho, ho ho!
Pick up a few pre-cut letters from the craft aisle of your hardware store and break out an enamel spray paint in Christmas colours. When spraying on your top coats, it’s better to do many light coats than one or two heavy coats. On intricate items like this, applying the spray paint heavily will cause drips and runs to form, ruining the appearance.
Make your Christmas table something special with Marble Effects paint. Take some of your ordinary dinner plates, jazz them up a bit and use them as a backdrop for your fine serving plates. Applied over the top of an enamel coat that you’ve sprayed on, it delivers an elegant marble finish to your Christmas meal.
Go with stone
Even the most mundane of gifts can be made special using Granite Effects spray paint. Turn plain old bathroom accessories into works of art in a matter of minutes. Available in light and dark grey finishes, you can use both so you don’t end up with as monotone scheme.
