I found these amazing spoons over at Ladies and Gentlemen. But what if I don’t want serving pieces, I want a full set of flatware instead? That is where the magic of spray paint comes in. Here’s my version and how I did it.
What you’ll need:
1. Flatware of your choice
2. spray paint metal primer
3. spray paint
4. painter’s tape
5. sandwich bag
1. Wrap neck of utensil with painter’s tape, being careful to make a straight horizontal line; also make sure you press the tape into any grooves to prevent bleeding or dripping.
3. In a well ventilated area, hold utensil by the head and lightly spray the utensil on all sides with the metal primer. Repeat. (As tempting as it is, don’t spray one heavy coat of primer. It will create drips and also fill in the delicate carvings in the metal.)
