Wow, I could definitely feel Fall in the air today. We are still looking at more hot weather. But I can feel the weather changing. Nights are getting very cool.
Today's little project is to paint a wooden watering can to look more like white enamel with black edging.
Here is what I began with, a little can I found a second hand sale.
I painted the entire can with white chalk paint leaving some areas not painted around the apple and leaves.
After the paint was dry I used a black fine point Sharpie pen to create the black edges. I also drew around the apple and leaves.
Here is a close up of the black edges.
I like the way the black pen shows off the apple and leaves which have a slight yellow color, not pure white like the rest of the water can. The color difference is caused by not painting too heavily over the original red and green coloring.
