I'm so delighted with the antique milk can final project. It was heaps of fun to do and I'm happy with the results. Since most people asked to see the finished milk cans, I'm providing you will a full show and tell.
Feel free to make comments at the bottom of this page. It always inspires me to keep bringing you more and more things like free tutorials and to share stories of my creative adventures! And I hope they inspire and encourage you to take artistic risks and make time for art in your life.
And here is the second milk can. A completely different look, that's for sure.
I like to think of them as a daytime garden and an evening garden.
Note that the butterflies and dragonflies have a thin coat of Glamor Dust Paint to add shimmer to the wings.
Here you can make out the shimmering wings on the dragonfly.
I will be designing an e-booklet featuring most of the elements of these milk cans, including full size line drawings, list of materials and paints used and tons of details so that you can paint on milk cans or other surfaces of your choice.
As always, my information materials are always super detailed so that painters at most skill levels can accomplish the projects.
When I have completed the e-booklet, I will announce it in The Creative Chronicles newsletter. If you haven't signed up for the free newsletter, here's where you can do that right now. That way you'll never miss a thing that's going on in this creative studio, and maybe you will even learn something new.
And, if YOU have painted an old milk can why not show it off for the world to see? I have a Visitor's Gallery where you can upload your images and write a brief description. Have a peek here. I'd love to showcase your artwork!
On another note, I have my very own milk can waiting for me to paint something on it. Seems I'm always painting milk cans for others but never for me!! I'm going to have to do something about that!
That's it for the antique milk can final project.
Thanks for following along. It was nice having you on this fun journey!
