100 Days: Pitch Her

I especially enjoy making faux finishes. This one on a scale metal pitcher found at Michael's for about a buck, is well-worn painted tin. It started out smooth powder coated cream colored. I laid down a coat of aluminum paint to get back the silver undertone and then made 3 passes of white acrylic, black ink wash, and scuffing up to arrived at the right look. This prop will live on the porch next to the rain barrel.

    That's a beautiful looking finish!

    Thanks so much for posting all these progress shots and detailing your work process. It's really a boon to all stop motion animators!
