Description: IVETOFTA gets an industrial makeover with spray paint. These little firepots cast the most gorgeous warm glow, reminiscent of an old boiler room.
You will need… -IVETOFTA candle lantern -Spray primer in gray -Rust-Oleum’s Hammered Metal spray paint in gray -Acrylic craft paint (I used 2 paint colors- antique copper and dark burnt umber) -Liquid gold leaf -2 foam brushes -Painter’s tape -Paper towel
Spray paint the lantern with primer, followed by 2 coats of hammered metal finish.
Once dry, using a foam brush, paint the inside of the lantern with liquid gold leaf.
Using a different foam brush, apply streaks of acrylic craft paint around the circumference of the lantern, wiping with a paper towel.
Spray a bit more of the hammered metal paint on a paper plate. Using painter’s tape, apply the extra paint to the surface of the lantern. Technique: stick, then pull. Repeat in random areas over the surface of the lantern to achieve a more weathered look.
Safety note: Allow lanterns to dry for at least 24 hours prior to using!
