All painty here then :0)

Hello my crafty friends,
I'm happy to see you today:0) This is the post for my Craft Barn makes and today I have a recycled tin or two with some rather special paint!
My tins were full of travel sweets ( and very yummy too) I hate throwing these tins away, they're big enough for embellishments and stuff. The Jars are the little jam/marmalade pots that you get in restaurants. Now with this paint I can disguise them and reuse them.

I used Pebeo Fantasy Moon paint. I found it facinating watching the paint develop it's characteristic surface of the moon like qualities :0) Over on the Craft Barn Blog there are a few more details about this project but the ingredients are here:

 I hope you have a wonderful weekend, thank you for visiting, tomorrow details of more fun to be had, I know, I'm a bit of a tease LOL Hugs Gay x

Great way to recycle empty tins and jars Gay, the gold and chocolate colour look fantastic together. Not heard of those paints before but really like the effect they produce.

Have a lovely weekend xx

Your jars look brilliant, Gay! I love the effect of the Pebeo Fantasy Moon paint. Beautiful embellishments, too. Very posh craft room jars! But prefer those to my plastic ones!
Enjoy a lovely weekend x

Lovely alterations and that paint sound like it has a life all its own. 'Surface of the Moon' paint, now that sounds so special.
