Decoupage – Galvanized Metal Bucket

This is Tanvi wishing you all a very good morning!
I am in love with the wide range of decoupage blanks, papers & glue available at Itsy BitsyDecoupage glue is available in both glossy & matte finish, this glue is acid-free and can be used  as a topcoat and sealer. It can also be used on surfaces such as wood, metal, glass, paper & fabric (not wearables). This glue is great for image transfers and sealing quilled embellishments as well.  
My DT kit included a galvanized tin pail, decoupage glue & some gorgeous decoupage papers.
Here is how I used them –
To begin I spray painted the inside of the bucket with black acrylic spray & primed the outer surface. I selected the motifs to be used & carefully fussy cut it. These were then decoupaged, Using a sponge dauber I then blended the blank primed surface with acrylic colors to match the decoupage paper. Loved the outcome!
I used silicon glue to add hemp twine to the top & bottom rims of the pail & partly on the handles too.
I created a brick pattern using a stencil using a stencil brush. Once dry I muted the green by rubbing metallic gold over the green & the edges of the bucket.
The metallic gold was used on the rims & the handle too. This created the perfect rustic look I wanted to create! To finish I varnished the pail.
Hope you like the final outcome too!
Have a great weekend & happy crafting!
