Modern Interior Decorating - Painting Accessories, Jewellery and Even Candles

If you want to give new life to something paint it. Paint can be applied to almost every surface, and when you use paint additives you can paint virtually anything. Paint can even be applied to water to get amazing effects.

Modern Interior Decorating - Painting Accessories, Jewellery and Even CandlesMost of us know and understand how to paint walls, ceilings, baseboards and floors. That is just the beginning of the ways you can use it. Jewelry is a great place to use paint, if you have a necklace that you like but the colors are wrong, use acrylic paints and varnish to it bring back into style. Metallic paint comes in great colors and is available in all craft stores.

Painting accessories will save you money, things like trash cans to match a new decor. Picture frames, take the pictures out and repaint any frame, I recommend using spray paint. Lamps and lamp shades are very costly but you can paint any kind of lamp. If it is a glass base, or slick surface, sand it slightly and use a sealer product like Kilz. Then you can paint any color or pattern on your lamp. Don't forget the shade; make it match the lamp, just paint any color over the existing shade. You can even put a design inside and create a silhouette effect with the light on.

How about candles? With a candle paint medium you can use any acrylic paint and create beautiful custom candles. Fabric, again with the correct fabric additive you can turn any acrylic paint into fabric paint. After heat setting, with most fabrics, you can even put the finished product in the washer and dryer.

A beautiful effect can be applied to accessories when you use regular tap water. Simply apply a coat of paint to your accessories (flatter things work best) using a spray bottle, spray the area with water. Over that use a can of enamel spray paint at a 25 degree angle lightly over the water drops. Let it dry the effect is amazing. Using colors that contrast each other gives the best result.

We have just scratched the surface of things that you can apply paint to. If you hate something in your home, it is very likely you can put a coat of paint on it and change it into a work of art. Acrylic paints come in any color you can imagine, don't be afraid to customize your own colors. Spray paints even come with texture and many colors to choose.
