Old Saw Blades Art Piece for Mancave
My husband had lots of old saw blades and other rusted tools around. He loves Texas Shiner beer, so after collecting lots of caps, I decided to make this picture using old picket fence. He loved it! You could also make little clocks with the blades.
Before you paint the blades, make sure you primed them so that the rust doesn't come through the paint later on. Unfortunately I don't have more pictures to show the process but I think it is pretty simple to figure out. Here are other ideas using old rusted tools and pots.
Enjoyed the project?

Lu Odger on Feb 23, 2016What did you prime them with in the first place I have some of these things and would love to paint them
Carolina's Art on Mar 15, 2016@Luodger I used regular primer (water-based). And acrylic paints. When it was all dry, I used a clear satin spray to protect it.
