- Wedding: September 2014
Hi ladies, so my color scheme is plum-purple with fushia/cream accents. Here are all the small pots I’ve paintef for the wedding favors. The paint job was a little tricky because the paint I used is kinda sheer and the results were streaky when paintef with a brush, I wanted a kind a patined/used look for the pots but it was looking as if a 5 year old painted them. So I changed techniques until i’ve found that makeup sponges were perfect. I used one coat of white gesso to prep the pots and then, used the makeup sponge with dilluted paint(dilluted with water-I used acrylic craft paint) to paint the pots. For the gradient effect i just put coat after coat of paint to get this effect.
