Painting on a Milk Can

One of my latest painting projects was a milk can.  It was old, with very old black paint on it that was starting to chip and had a tad bit of rust showing.  Once again I was doing the fox hunting theme which I thoroughly enjoy.

This is the start of the milk can project. The grey paint is the adhesion primer, which will be completely covered in paint.

After completing the painting, I placed the milk can in front of our fireplace.  It looked really good there, and I received many complements on it.  Finally, the client came to pick it up and I was sad to see it leave.  I have picked up a milk can of my own, now to get time to work on it!

    1. That would be great! I am currently painting on some serving tiers that I will just have to photograph and post when they are done as I can’t seem to explain them so anyone understands what I am talking about. I just finished another fox and have a large (30 gal?) tub, a smaller (10 gal?) tub w/lid, and a bread can (4 gal?) w/lid that I have the primer coats on.
