I liked John‘s and Woodstock‘s suggestion of decorating an otherwise boring home appliance. I called Krylon, makers of Paint That Sticks To Anything, and got some recommendations on the type to look for. Based on the cost and my lack of artistic merit in this sort of endeavor, I don’t think the flames motif would work. I have some ideas that I’d like to toss out for opinion…
|This is the Alton Brown model, for comparison. A decal wouldn’t hold up to the cleaning the mixer endures. I don’t think I could do the paint job. If I tried something similar there would be two color flames with no blending.|
|This is an attempt at doing airplane-like “nose art” on a household appliance. It would take two colors (red & white). Multiple layers are required. Maybe even some (gasp) mixing of color!|
|The Holstein look would be pretty easy to do on the top. For illustrative purposes, I’ve added it on the base. One color (white).|
|This is a completely different color that I should probably not admit would match the kitchen very well. It’s one color, very easy to do if it’s just the top. Red or blue would also match the kitchen.|
Thoughts or further suggestions?
