Dipped objects are setting a trend in home design, fashion, and everyday objects. Usually, the dipped colour contrast is between a neutral shade spiked with a soft pastel or trendy neon. You can “dip” just about anything you want. I started with chopsticks, some wooden spoons, a cheese board, and some vintage cutlery. I also played around with dipped glass jars. I can’t wait to try the dipped trend on some furniture or with fabric on a cute sundress.
Objects to be dipped
Acrylic craft paints or spray paint
Step one: Using the painters tape mark off the area on your utensils that you want to have the “dipped effect” on them. If you are using spray paint you will need to mask off the entire area of the utensil that is not being painted for health and safety reasons (especially for chopsticks, utensils, cutlery).
Step two: Spray or brush paint on. You may have to do 2-3 coats depending on the consistency of your paint. The goal is to have a very solid coat to look as if it has actually been dipped in the paint. Let dry for one hour.
Step three: Remove painters tape after the drying period is complete. I like to give them all a quick wipe down with a damp cloth. Please note, these items must be washed by hand with care. Please do not place in dishwasher.
