I have lots of scrap galvanized roofing tin in storage. I usually cut it to size and attach it to things without painting it, but I have become so inspired by Shelly at MinettesMaze.
I had no illusions that my painting would look anything like hers. Shelly has mad painting skills that I don’t, but with the Fourth of July coming up quickly I decided I could surely manage painting flags.
I usually use the rust on junk to my advantage, but in this case I turned the rust to the back so that I would have a smoother surface for painting. Each tin got a base of white. The humidity is kinda icky right now so I waited a day before continuing.
I taped off the stripes and blue fields, which I am sure Shelly probably doesn’t do, but I was severely challenged by the hills and valleys of the tin. Taping was the only way I could paint a straight line.
I cheated a bit with the stars by using stencils.
Check out another of Shelly’s posts HERE. It has a similar flag to mine and lots and lots of painted patriotic inspiration.
