Paint and pots
Last weekend we went to two weddings - those two days could not have been more packed with joy and prosecco and happiness and beautiful flowers and great food and hugging!
I wanted a couple of small, homey but home-made gifts to give the respective couples, and I thought that a jade or money plant would be just the thing. Who DOESN'T fancy a little luck and prosperity when they've just paid for a wedding, hey?!
Anyway, I had a very rock'n'roll Friday night in the week before, watching The Bridge (four years after everyone else - I'm always late to these TV parties!) and painting flower pots. I used normal acrylic paints, then when they were dry masked them off and spray painted them with this nice metallic gold stuff. It tends to wear off a bit, but I think that will make for a quite nice 'aged' effect (hopefully!?!).
