I am Plutonium™ Paint’s brand ambassador. I was compensated for my work, but all opinions are 100% my own.
January needs a bit of a color boost, and this project will provide that in spades. Over the past months, I have shared plenty of spray paint tutorials featuring Plutonium™ spray paint, but I don’t think I have done an adequate job of showing you the range of colors Plutonium offers. That’s all going to change today.
I found these wooden blocks at Goodwill. I really don’t understand the pricing structure at Goodwill. Some items are priced only a few dollars less than they would cost new, and then sometimes you find a big Ziploc of craft blocks for a few bucks. Supply and demand, I guess. Anyway these bad boys were demanding some color!
It’s a good thing I have a shelf full of Plutonium spray paint! Each block got a quick coat of primer and then ONE coat of Plutonium™. You read that right, those bold colors are from just one coat of spray paint. And this isn’t even the whole range of Plutonium colors. Altogether, Plutonium offers 40 different colors of paint to make sure your project is exactly as colorful as you would like.
If you are color buff, you probably keep up on Pantone’s color predictions for future seasons. These Plutonium colors are awfully similar to those you find in Pantone’s color predictions for Spring 2015. Going clockwise from top left, the colors are: Georgia Clay, Prince, Poupon, Manko, Twig, and Aloha.
As I was spraying the blocks one side was left unpainted. I decided to color block these colored blocks with some oil pastels.
I colored the last side of each block with a pastel in a color that contrasted with the Plutonium paint. I sealed the pastels off the old school (aka grade school) way by spraying them with hairspray.
The blocks are so colorful and happy, I can’t wait to find a place to display them. Maybe I will use them as colorful vase filler or I could stack them on our bookshelves. Wherever I put them, they are sure to brighten up the space!
You can purchase all 40 colors of Plutonium™ Paint from their new online store — and shipping is free!
Let's be buds.
