All you need is a Mason jar, a soap dispenser pump lid and your favorite color from the Montana Metallic Series
Spring has sprung and with it, the possibility to explore the stunning MontanaCans color palette. The choices of tones and effects are limitless to being spontaneous and let your imagination run free, with the intention to achieve all your heart desires and fun projects at home. So this season we are back to inspire you with some easy, yet nonetheless awesome DIY projects for you and your home. Heidelberg-based DIY-aficionado Vera Wohlleben came up with a great idea, that will give your bathroom some glitz with the help of some Montana METALLIC spray paint. We will be creating the most amazing soap dispenser. First and foremost, you will need: a Mason jar, a soap dispenser pump lid that fits the size of your jar, some latex gloves, a plastic sheet or newspaper to protect your work surface and of course a can of your favorite color from the Montana METALLIC series—we recommend two of our favorites: EMC6250 Caribbean & EMC6210 Tennessee, which are great turquoise, teal, cyan tones for Spring season. We also suggest to use the Universal Primer at the very beginning, and MontanaCans Varnish at the end, just to give a better and more professional look to your soap dispenser.
Before you start, make sure to shake the cans well for 1-2 minutes
THREE SIMPLE STEPS! Here we go
- Starting out, make sure your work surface is fully covered in a plastic sheet or newspaper. Also, don’t miss out the opportunity to use the UNIVERSAL PRIMER before to start adding some color on your Mason Jar to have better results.
- Put on your plastic gloves and lie your Mason jar on one of its sides, start spraying it with the Montana METALLIC paint. Something special about MontanaCans spray paint is that it adheres to just about anything. It’s perfect for use on everyday objects such as this soap dispenser. Plus, there’s the fact that the colors all have incredible quality and depth. You can check out our HOW TO USE sections, and find different ways to create texture, or put some glitter effect on your dispenser and make it look more fun.
- Next step is to cover your jar in color and make sure to rotate the jar as to get a better look on all the sides. If you want to, don’t hesitate to add a second hand of color for a complete and shiny look. Be sure to wait for the paint to be dry before your seal the surface, by putting a layer of VARNISH spray from the Montana TECH line. Once the VARNISH has dried, all you need to do is fill it with soap and dishes are done!
Tips: As soon as the custard begins to thicken the saucepan must be taken from the fire and the stirring continued for a second or two longer. If the cooking is done in a double boiler the risk of boiling is very much lessened.
