liquitex® heavy body antiqued floral tin

Transform any galvanized garden planter into a lovely décor piece. An ideal piece to make it feel like springtime in Paris all year round in your space, be it indoor or out.
Step 1

Cover your work surface with a disposable covering.

Step 2

Apply Light Pink for the first layer of paint. Squeeze a quarter-sized amount of paint out of the tube and onto a palette (or plate). Dip your sponge into the paint and begin applying it to the planter, covering it completely with an even coating.
TIP: The illustrated container featured embossed writing that was elevated when painted. If you like the look, but don't have a tin with a built-in design, consider selecting a stencil and complementary paint to apply another decorative painted element to your project.

Step 3

Next, apply a layer of Iridescent Rich Copper. Again, squeeze a quarter-sized amount of paint onto a palette (or plate). Allow your paint to dry completely.
TIP: The copper paint should be applied more sporadically and does not need to cover the entire surface. This will give the planter an appearance of a weathered or aged look.

Step 4

To add the twine, first decide where you would like to have it wrap around your planter. Place a dot of hot glue on the area where you would like the twine to be placed and then press it into the glue to secure. Wrap the twine around the planter as many times as you want, then place a second dot of hot glue to secure the opposite end of your twine.

Step 5

Place flower arrangement into planter to complete.
