1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Discussion and Questions / how to paint enamelware stockpot on: February 02, 2014 04:07:38 PM
I hope I'm in the right place!  I have 3 HUGE enamel stockpots that had originally been used for canning.  I'd like to use them to grow herbs on my porch, but I want to paint them (they're the standard spatter-painted black).  Does anyone know how I might do this?  I want to cover the entire stockpot with color.  How should I prep them?  Do I need to sand them?  Do I need to use primer?  What type of paint: enamel, acrylic, etc.?  Spray paint or brush / sponge on?  ANY suggestions will be most welcome!  Thanks in advance!

Furious George...I am DYING!   Cheesy  That is just too funny and too clever and, as others have stated, obviously due to your lack of sleep.  I adore puns (especially bad ones) and this just made my week!  Wish I'd thought of it!

Bestest. WallDecoTechnique. Ever.

I had never heard of using spray starch for something like this. My head is already spinning with ideas for my house that do not include the use of nails or spackle. This is just too cool!

LUVIN' the cucumber "watermelon" shots! I did a sherbet "watermelon" for a party; the kids loved it and the adults thought it cute, but I think the grown-ups would've appreciated these more.  'Bookmarking' and 'ROCKing' this!

This whole thread is cool!!!  I worked in a lab for several years and jewelry from the periodic table would've made awesome "Secret Santa" gifts -- I'm so sad that I didn't think of this myself a couple of years ago. I'm also lovin' the polyclay frame tute and I'm delighted with the "shrinking plastic" link. Ever put a #1 plastic in the dishwasher? I'm gonna have to try it in the toaster oven now!

1boy1girl1kitty2, graced and Diane B., if there's a prize for "Best Thread," y'all have got my vote!

A friend's daughter is into "Gothic aristocracy" -- this would be perfect for her, too.  A truly gorgeous piece of jewelry!  Of course, I love Steampunk in any form.  LOVE the dragonfly!

We're surrounded by wildlife preserves where hunting is allowed, and I'm always finding spent shell casings of various sizes when we hike. (Some of them are probably my husband's!)  I had never thought to try something like this...I am so VERY impressed!  Swarovski and shell casings!!!  How ironic!!! *grin*

And am I seeing old post earring backs being used with jump rings? THAT is just too clever!  May I ask, please, what you used for adhesive?

I want this. I truly, truly want this. The concept is so unique, the sculpting is awesome, the reuse of the watch is brill, and that fish just makes me happy!
