Response Saturday: Painted Vintaj

  I have dabbled with this technique of painting on metal after seeing Jess at Vintaj demonstrating it at the Bead & Button Show.  But when I decided I needed a little more color in my metal for my Rust Belt Market booth, I found myself exploring it much more fully.
Yeah, sometimes when I get an idea, I don't just do it halfway, I go all for it.  So I painted dozens and dozens of charms tonight in a variety of colors.  They really look quite lovely all sorted in the little tins.  I can't wait to work with them and see how my customers like them this weekend!
I used Ranger Ink Paint Dabbers and sealed them with Renaissance Wax.  Instead of me telling you how I made these, how about you just watch Jess' video?  Thanks to the gals at Vintaj for always coming up with fun new techniques!
