plant stand refurb

June 27, 2012

Mom gave me this rusted wrought iron plant stand.

I decided to try using rust converter on it. This is a brush-on product that foams up and turns a copper-patina blue.

It dries to a dark film which you can paint over. The container did not provide the formulae for the chemical reaction, but something happens to turn the rust into something paintable.

I primed it, painted it green, and then made the flowers yellow.

With little red bits on them.

Thanks, Mom. And thanks gurus at Crest and Klenosky Paint for technical advice.
