Hob Covers

3 Materials
2 Hours

My mam was going to throw these out and get new ones but she asked me could I do anything with them before she binned them so I said sure why not!

Here they are before

Have them a little sand & wiped them clean

I used a metallic spray paint for them

Put them on a pallet I had outside that I wasn’t used them to spray them - always be in a ventilated area when using spray paint as they can be very strong of used inside in a small enclosed place

Second coat on - letting it dry for 30 mins in between coats

Third coat - I let this dry and then brought them inside to dry fully

I didn’t want to leave them plain so I decided I’d freehand some trees on them using my fave paint - fusion in soap stone

Using a pencil I sketched a rough tree

Using this as a guide for my paint

Paint the trunk

Then flick out for the branches

I drew another 2 trees

Using the same technique- paint the trunk then flick out the branches

Keep one tree taller than the other

Side by side

Decided to go for a different style of tree on the other 2

Tree number 3

Did a bigger style on the bigger of the hob covers

The finished 4
