My watermelon looking propane tank

Our propane tank is small since it only is used for our fireplace. The propane tank was rusted and unsightly. I painted it to look like a watermelon with a ladybug on top. It is in the shade all the time, so no danger of overheating due to paint.

    Betty, you have to own your tank like we do to be able to paint them other than white or silver. Then if you paint them, they have to be in the shade so they don't blow up from the darker color and sun causing heat inside.

    KMS: Since you are such a knowledgeable individual, I have a question for you. I posted a question under Decks and Outdoor Living and haven't had much success with replies. My question is this: Where could I find "asian-inspired" fence post caps?

    Barbara G, I used oil base for the green base color on the tank. I then used acrylic to paint the stripes. I used several coats of exterior sealer when done. I painted bricks on my sidewalk with a paint called Patio Paint by Plaid. It is hard to find

    Terry I think the Patio Paint is the absolute best for the out door art projects. I used it when I was embellishing our deck w/b'flies, birds, etc. Some are on the top railing and have full blazing sun all day plus the deck boards get a lot of wear &
