Easter Basket by Sarah Allan

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great start to the weekend, the sun is shining, the birds are singing and springtime feels like it is almost here :)

My project today is an Easter basket, I picked up a plastic easter bucket from the pound shop and gave it the Brusho treatment ..

Step 1 - paint the bucket with a layer of gesso and dry carefully, you don't want to melt the bucket with your heat tool.. alternatively you can leave to dry naturally, i left it overnight

Step 2 - add some brusho crystal colours to some gesso and mix well, I chose moss green

Step 3 - paint the whole surface of the bucket with your new coloured gesso and dry

Step 4 - spritz some water on to you bucket in sections then sprinkle your brusho over top to activate crystals, then if required spray again until you get the look you like.   Dry in between sections and repeat.

Once you have your surface the way you want it... just fill your basket with straw and fill with easter goodies, this is am inexpensive but really  cute!
