Interference Paint Drip Thrift Store Lamp Makeover
Start with a thrifted lamp (or 2!)
Wrap anything you don't want painted in blue painters tape.
1
Spray the areas you will be painting with a coat of primer.
2
Mix Enchanted Ultra Black Basecoat with DecoArt Paint Adhesion Medium 1:1. Then, mix that with water 1:2 (more water than paint mixture).
3
Apply mixture in thin even strokes. Let each coat dry thoroughly between. My lamps took 4 quick coats.
4
Mix Enchanted Iridescent Topcoat Acrylic in a 1:4 ratio with more water than paint. Apply paint generously and let it run down.
5
Add some more paint to your mixture and repeat the process staying higher up on the lamp. Repeat this step up to 4 times staying higher each time.
6
Optional: Remove the painters tape and paint the neck and base of your lamp with liquid gold leaf.
7
Enjoy your stunning new lamps!
