My grandpop gave me this metal bowl a few visits back and I tossed it in a box when I got home. I found it again in my big clean out. I also found my favorite color of spray paint and the light bulb went on.
After a base spray with turquoise, I took out the acrylic paints and some glazing medium and added a darker turquoise to the deeper crevices and a lighter color to the raised areas. Then I dry brushed the paints all over, which helped it from looking too flat.
I really like how it turned out. Now it carries my brooch & pin collection.
