Materials: IVETOFTA candle lantern
Description: IVETOFTA gets an industrial makeover with spray paint. These little firepots cast the most gorgeous warm glow, reminiscent of an old boiler room.
You will need…
-IVETOFTA candle lantern
-Spray primer in gray
-Rust-Oleum’s Hammered Metal spray paint in gray
-Acrylic craft paint (I used 2 paint colors- antique copper and dark burnt umber)
-Liquid gold leaf
-2 foam brushes
- Spray paint the lantern with primer, followed by 2 coats of hammered metal finish.
- Once dry, using a foam brush, paint the inside of the lantern with liquid gold leaf.
- Using a different foam brush, apply streaks of acrylic craft paint around the circumference of the lantern, wiping with a paper towel.
- Spray a bit more of the hammered metal paint on a paper plate. Using painter’s tape, apply the extra paint to the surface of the lantern. Technique: stick, then pull. Repeat in random areas over the surface of the lantern to achieve a more weathered look.
Safety note: Allow lanterns to dry for at least 24 hours prior to using!
