Random colors of spray paint and Loctite Epoxy glue are all the supplies you need
Random plates and candlesticks/bases
A few of the final results
I stocked up on these plates! They are flat all the way out to the edges, no large lip like most plates.
What used to be a chipped copper candlestick is now a pop of hot pink happiness.
This base screams retro....and swivels!!!
An elegant stand with cover (another thrifted gem!)
All it takes is some good glue and spray paint to create your one-of-a-kind treasures. I like the two part epoxy that you squeeze and mix from Loctite (it does smell to high Heaven so make sure you have ventilation). Just paint, or leave it be, and glue together. Be sure to find the center when gluing otherwise you'll have a stand that doesn't stand when you put any weight on it. And I recommend at least 48 hours to cure before using. Also, if you opt to spray paint the whole piece, it may be prudent to use a clear protective coating spray paint to help prevent chips and scratches and keep them in good shape over time. I always put a piece of scrapbook paper down before I lay a cake on it. Paints chips don't make the best garnish and I plan on using these for a while to come.
