With the aid of a homemade template, it’s really quick and easy to paint bright colours onto materials with an uneven texture, such as driftwood. Before you begin, the surface of the object must be dry, clean and free from any traces of grease.
Place the template onto the piece of driftwood and mask any areas which are to remain unpainted. Starting at the top, now spray your chosen colour evenly onto the exposed areas using both vertical and horizontal strokes.
Because the paint is quick-drying, it won’t be long before you can place these treasured items back on display around your home. Alternatively, you may prefer to give your artwork extra protection with a coat of edding Clear Lacquer.
