Harsh contrasts bother sometimes. That is why I wasn’t liking this white tea light in a bronze lantern.
So I got out some acrylic paint and slapped a coat on a plastic battery operated tea light in less than a minute. I needed to test the paint anyway because I plan on painting a frame with it this week.
Now that’s better.
Here’s a peak at what I am doing with my newly painted urns.
PS I tried some photo tips I read in Censational Girl’s post today and they worked. Go here to check it out. You have to tweak the settings according to your lighting situation, but it gives you a place to start. I couldn’t figure out how not to blow out the color on the white candle. I tried to focus on just that one, but the camera kept reading the color of the darker candle. At least I think that is what happened.
