PoP – painted vintage metal tin.
Posted on 28 Dec 2015
When life is tough, you need a product that is tough too – but without the complications.
This is what POP paint offers me! and just one of the reasons why I love it so much.
POP paint was formulated to work on any surface without needing a primer first – and it sticks without any hassle
to even surfaces that you normally would need to prime.
Today I am sharing another of my frugal recycling products all dressed up to vintage goodness.
I am in the process of remodelling my store room to make it a bit more functional – and in the process my best friend is POP Paint.
I am literally painting everything and anything with POP paint for a colourful feast of creativity.
Here I painted an empty dog food tin and popped some fake greenery inside. A beautiful little plant adding life to even a tired store room.
step 1 – First choose one of the delicious colours you want to use.
step 2 – Remove the label from your tin, then Wash and dry it. Paint a first layer of paint on the outside and let it dry.
step 3 – Paint a second layer to ensure you have a good solid coverage of colour.
step 4 – Lightly sand the outside of the tin using sanding paper.
TIP: Because POP paint has a chalky feeling, some of the chalk will come off when sanding – this is a good thing.
Sand the surface until it feels smooth to the touch and not chalky.
Use a clean soft cloth to wipe it down and remove any chalk dust.
step 5 – Use a stipple brush and add a layer of dark furniture wax.
Then use an old white t-shirt and buff it.
Add a layer of clear wax and buff until it shines. The wax adds a beautiful vintage feel to it, will protect it from getting dirty
as well as make it water resistant so it can be wipes clean at any time.
I decorated my tin by adhering a ribbon and flower to the front using my hot glue gun.
And there I have an instant little holder for plants, pens, paint brushes or any of my other crafting tools.
