Do you ever see a figurine at Goodwill or a yard sale and think, "It would be cute if it were a different color."? Well you are in luck. Next time buy that ugly figurine, a can of primer and of spray paint, and turn it into something awesome!
You will need three different colors (tubes) of "Gallery Glass", a product by PLAID. On a sheet of picture glass or a piece of freezer paper shiny side up, form nickle size drops of color one. Make about a hundred dots. Now, make a second smaller dot in the center of the first dots. Go back to the first dot and using a toothpick in the center of the dot draw out the top paint into a star shape, five or six points. when all hundred dots have 'stars' on them go back a third time and place a tiny dot of your third color in the center. Let all of your millefiore dry overnight or at least twelve hours.
You can give outdated nicknacks a new life with a simple coat of paint. Check out this video to see how we revived a couple ceramic owls.
