Windowsill Herbs in Metal Pails - for Unruly Paper Arts
Over on Unruly Paper Arts it is their Metal issue this month and I have altered some metal pails which had contained hyacinth bulbs and turned them into windowsill pots for herbs:-
I won't put the whole tutorial on here but I have used Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paints and shown Leandra's technique using their Crackly Tissue Paper where you paint the image from behind so that the stamped detail shows through on the front. The other great thing with the paints, of course, is that they 'take' so well on metal and other surfaces without a primer. I hope you will pop over to Unruly and see the full tutorial. This was such a fun project and the herbs are still sitting on my kitchen window sill even though I did the article a few weeks ago - although you will see the oregano is actually coriander!
If you would like to take an on-line course with me, do please get in touch by e mail, email@example.com. I am currently running one on making your own moulds, examples of which you can see throughout my blog. I will shortly be running one using tissue paper techniques.
