I figured this might go well in this category- this was part of a recent swap package I sent out for the fairy tale swap!

This is a tin that I spray painted and reverse stenciled.  i used rustoleum and enamel spray paints.  I had trouble with it, there is definitely a learning curve there!

I would never be able to tell that you had any trouble at all....the knight on the back, which I assume would be the dickens to get right and the hardest part of the whole thing, looks perfect. I mean PERFECT!

oh, thank you so much for the kind words!
I had to remove the paint twice with Goof Off, as I was spraying outside and well, it was windy, and the wind blew it over on the grass which of course got stuck to it... sigh.  I want to do more, but you definitely have to spray paint outside and on a non-windy day, it is a bit too cold for me to do that for a bit, I think!  I could perhaps be persuaded to do a personal swap for something similar in the spring.. when it gets warmer!

Wow. I really love that. And, it definitely is impossible to tell that you had trouble with it! Did you create the stencil yourself?

Yes, I used contact paper to stencil it!
I spray painted the entire thing black and and then applied the contact paper over it and spray painted it robin's egg blue!

The best way for me to spray paint it as a curved object was for me to hot glue a paint stirrer to the inside and turn it with that as I sprayed it.  But definitely tricksy!

My mother has a tin habit that we're trying to get her to curb, but this is one tin that I would happily allow in her collection.  It's beautiful!
