Painting metal surface with enamel paint

Enamel paint can also be used on metal or tin surfaces. However in order to have a lasting effect ypu need to varnish it. This is another flower design.You paint directly on the surface and ensure that the brush does not contain water.

I have painted this Prego Jar with patchwork design using Gloss Enamel Paint. Then I bake it to have a lasting effect in a normal oven at 150c for 35 minutes. The metal cap also I painted with checkered design but I brush a layer of varnish instead of baking it.

You can get the Gloss Enamel paint at Creative Cottage, Amcorp Mall PJ or order thru online :

You can paint up metal surfaces using enamel paint. This is done without having to undercoat it with Gesso. Here are some re-cycle CDs which I have turn it into cool coasters by sponging the background with enamel paint a couple of layers and then stencil them using the same type of paint. To make it more long lasting I put one layer of varnish. Go to Creative Cottage Online Shopping page to look at available colours in Gloss Enamel Paint.

Enamel Paint on Candle

Enamel Paint can also be used on Candle surfaces. Of course if you burn the candle the design will melt together with the candle. But who wants to do that if you have already done it so nicely. You don't need to varnish it, just let it dry naturally and it will stay there as long as you don't scratch it or burn it.

Enamel Paint on glazed ceramic

You can paint on plate or any glazed ceramic using Enamel Paint. However if you need to use it and washed, it would be a good idea to bake it in the normal oven or Microwave (convection) for 30 mins at 150c. It will make the paint more permanent and robust. Especially after you have dried and cured it for a couple of days.; If it is only for decoration you don't need to bake it. Just let it cure by itself for a couple of days (it is air-dry).

Stained glass technique on a Fondant Cake
