Yes, Glitterinas, I painted an old,
rusty shovel head.....
.....to look like a slice of watermelon.
I didn't take any pictures of the process.
but it's certainly not
brain surgery if I can do it!
I used indoor/outdoor paint for this project.
I painted the green rim and then painted the
entire center section white.
Without the white under the pink, the rust would have
kept it from looking pink.
I added the little white marks on the green rim
just to add some interest.
I painted the pink in the center section
leaving a small white band.
I used a stencil brush to pounce a
little bit more white around on
the white band.
Using a black Sharpie, I drew on
a few seeds after the pink paint dried.
Done, and done!
Find an old shovel
or any interesting piece of metal
and paint a
slice of watermelon that will last you
all summer long, Glitterinas!
Add a layer of protection with a spray of
polyurethane and a raffia bow....
and you're done!
This slice of watermelon will live
somewhere outside....but until I
decide for sure, it will be sitting right here
in the corner.
If you paint a slice of watermelon on something,
please share a picture....
I'd love to see your creation!
You are wonderful to let me share
projects with you, Glitterinas!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Until next time,
