Introduction: How to Decorate Old Kettle
Use colors to decorate your old kettle and serve the guest in this festive season. This kettle was hand painted by me. Use your own creativity to paint the kettle.I used Madhubani Art as the theme of the entire painting.
Step 1: Materials Required
Step 2: Apply Prime Coat
Take an aluminium kettle and to decorate it further, you have to apply a prime coat first.
I have used white acrylic color as prime coat. The advantage of applying a prime coat is the next layer color will be more prominent and the top layer painting will be brighter.
Step 3: First Layer Application
Choose at least two colors of your choice on which you are going to paint further.
It is advisable to apply multiple coats for better result.
Step 4: Draw the Outlines
First draw your design with a pencil and then follow the marked lines with zero size paint brush.
If you have given lighter shade in the first layer, it is advisable to draw the outlines at least double shade darker of the first layer. Its better choose dark colors from your color pallets to draw all your outlines.
I have used black color as making the outlines for MADHUBANI design over the first layer painting which is neon green.
Step 5: Adding More Designs
Apply designs and colors according to your imagination.
Its better to use contrast colors over the first layer.
I have used neon pink color to decorate the flowers which is going with my prime MADHUBANI painting.
Step 6: Applying 3D Liners
To give a 3D texture or to draw sharp colorful lines, you can use 3D liners.
Step 7: Filling Colors in to the Designs
Take some colors which are very much match to your theme and decorate with brushes,neon liners and dotting tools.
Step 8: Decorate the Painting
You can decorate the designs with rhinestones and craft mirrors.You can use craft lace or jute thread to decorate the same.
Step 9: Decorate the Handle
You should give a color on handle which is very much contrast to your kettle container color.
Then design and decorate with liners and colors.
Step 10: Final Result
I really satisfied with my final outcome which is much better then my expectation as it was first attempt.
I hope you can also make beautiful kettle like this.
