Canal Ware - traditional English Folk Art

My painting has been on the back burner over the summer - I got caught up with the sewing, not to mention having a new machine to work with. Anyway, I finished this canal ware last week. It started out as a shining, silver aluminium tray and buckets from Ikea. I used multi purpose sealer, black and coloured Decoart Americana - finished off with a coat of Decoart Patio Clear Coat. It works, but it's not a tough finish - patio paint over metal primer would be better if it were to stand outside.

Hi Lynne, lovely work!

I use etching primer for alluminum objects.
