Shrunk in the wash possibly?

Another running around week but got time to try out my first go at painting metal items.  Ideal job when you’ve only got so long to spare as each layer/coat needs a fair time to dry satisfactorily.  Still seems to come out feeling sticky.

Mixed results but ‘useable’ I think 😉

Though bought cream and green pans and enamel ware, fancied doing the bread bin and scales in the white with dark blue trim
Went for a worn look to go with the bought enamel items which have wear and tear built in too.

  1. Great job, they’re very evocative. I’ve tried this and it’s not easy, I found the hardest part to be painting the ‘BREAD’ on to the raised letters of the bin but you’ve done a lovely job of it.

    • Found a three bristle brush splats a bit so I cheated and used a dark blue biro as it gives a little more control. Still need some practice at it and, of course, two pairs of glasses!

  2. A good job! I love blue and white and I also realize how difficult it can be to get a smooth even distribution of dark paint over light, not that easy- so Well Done!

    • Thanks 😉 The smooth and even distribution of white paint in the bottom of the scale pan was even worse and needs covering over with some food stuff that’s being weighed, that’s for sure! It pooled a little however thin a coat I put on
