Pantone’s Color of the Year, Honeysuckle
As you all may know I am a huge fan of Kristi at the Speckled Dog. I want to point that out as I share this bowl pedestal with you because for once I wasn’t being a copy cat. I just happened to put my pieces together after she shared how she did hers. =)
I found this wooden bowl at Goodwill and already had the candlestick. After pulling the metal part out of the candlestick (where the candle sits) I glued the two together with my trusty Gorilla Wood Glue.
Then with my Purdy brush, I painted on a coat of Folk Art’s Parisian Pink. The brush ended up being too big so I only did the one coat with it. I also switched to Folk Art’s Hot Pink for the next two coats because it looked closer to Honeysuckle.
Once the paint was all dry, I decided the pedestal needed a little bigger base so I glued another circle on the bottom with the Gorilla Glue. I painted the base Hot Pink. Then I roughed up the whole piece a little and used my black glaze mix from before. Then I sealed the whole piece.
There we go for my use of Pantone’s Honeysuckle, color of the year. It is very vibrant and yet refreshing.
