gold dipped pears how to

directions

step one : spray your pears with fixative to prep them for paint.

step two : spray paint the pears and let them full dry outside.

step three : pour your paint into a plastic tub and prepare a clean drying surface (i used paper plates). dip each pear in by gently holding the stem and spinning the pear while keeping the tub tipped to one side.

step four : let the pears dry and fix any weird spots with a brush if you’d like. in order to not have the pears dry onto the plates, i picked them up and moved them every 20 minutes or so.

step five : stamp or handwrite your name cards, attach to elastic and knot onto the pear stems. i’ve had these tiny alphabet stamps from china for months and finally got to use them.
