I love silver. I would pick it up whenever I came across it and have accumulated a few boxes. Well, now it’s time to give it a little love.
So I pulled out this lovely, ornate tray and gave it a spray of white. Then sanded the raised parts. (Of course, no “Befores”, I’m working on that.)
I applied a graphic using the wax paper transfer method which can be a bit challenging. Very slippy, slidey. When I tried to apply the image the first time, I smeared it. I quickly wiped it off and tried again. Success. I then let it sit for two days thinking it would ‘set’. Not so. It was still wet. What now? I had some Mod Podge spray sealant so I applied several very, very light coats. (If you use this, make sure you use it outside. It is the most toxic smelling stuff ever. Effective but smelly.)
I used a final coat of clear spray and voila!
