A Touch of Tuscany
As most of you know, I have been collecting and placing in my garden, statues, arches, pots and etc with the Tuscany flair. I just love the look and plants that grow well in Tuscany also do well here where I live.
I bought an iron arch and a metal trellis last year and they need to be repainted. I also want to paint my terracotta pots to go with the aqua Tuscany look - not all of them, just some. Too much would be too much.
I found information on how to paint my pots so they have the look. So I will be washing and painting them as soon as the weather stabilizes. I am anxious to get after it, but we are expecting a major blizzard tomorrow.
The arch's original paint is n the aqua colour, but it has faded so much that it can hardly be discerned except up close.. The trellis was white, but there is more of the black iron showing now since the white has flaked off.
Does anyone know what kind of paint to use for repainting my iron trellis and arch? I know HOW to do it so it will have the look of antiquity, but I'm just not sure what kind of paint to use on the metal.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
