Scrapbook Tip of the Week #2

Paint is an easy and affordable way to change the look of metal pieces.

Various types of paint can be used... acrylic paint and spray paint work the best to change the look of metal accents. On bigger metal accents, sanding the metal helps the paint adhere to the slick surface.

To get a more aged or vintage look, sand the metal accents again once the paint had dried to give them a worn appearance.
