After my fancy tray came out so well, I decided to give another tray a shot. Truth be told, I hate the way this tray came out. Hate it. You can’t see it in the pictures but the paint (One-Shot) is way too shiny. Also, you can see every brush stroke. It’s a mess and did I mention I hate it? But there are additives I can buy to make it less shiny and reduce visible brush strokes so while this particular project was not a success, it was a necessary step on what I hope is the way to success. Here is the process/results.
Choosing an ampersand for this tray is a bit of an “is that all there is?” type of joke. You’ve got the tray, you’ve got the things to put on the tray, and then what?
