Hey Everyone - - I know it's Guest Post Extravaganza, but I just can't stay away!
Paint -- what a fun challenge - such a broad topic! I need a good pair of red earrings (since the holidays are coming up and all), so of course I turned to paint...here's what I started with:
And obviously I have a thing for craft paint:
So grab some craft paint ( I picked a deep red, of course) and paint a quick coat on. Let dry in between coats of paint. I ended up doing 3 coats of color:
And then this is where I have a tutorial fail - because I didn't even take pictures of the other steps - oops! But I'll talk you through it - - after the coats of color, I painted a coat of glitter paint (the Martha Stewart version - it worked great with it fabulousness in sparkle) and after that dried I painted a coat of Mod Podge over everything so the glitter won't flake off.
After they're dry, just assemble the earring pieces and wear with pride! I should avoid having kids take my picture (because it's an awful angle) but whatcha gonna do?!
So there you have it - my super simple, super fun paint project:
Don't forget to come link up with one of your awesome paint projects. Paint can be involved in almost any project, so sky's the limit on this one!
