How to Make Spooky Metallic Halloween Decor


One of my very favorite discoveries from my trip to Haven last summer was learning about Metallic Lustre paint. It was quite by accident (as most amazing discoveries are) when a new friend suggested I stop by the DecoArt booth and try out this fun paint.

What makes it so fun?

It’s like finger paints for grown-ups… if you finger paint with chocolate mousse.

Now before I give you all the details, I need you to know that this is not a sponsored post. I’m not getting paid to tell you about this paint or to review it.

It just makes me happy and I want to share that happy with you.

Metallic Lustre is a water based, cream paint that you can apply with your fingers.

It seriously feels like chocolate mousse. I may have even told a friend that it’s delicious to work with because of it’s fluffy dessert like texture. Just don’t eat it.

Once applied, wipe off any excess and wait a few minutes for it to dry.

Then simply buff it with a cotton cloth and your work will have a gorgeous metallic sheen.

A sheen that isn’t easy to capture on film, but is eye catching in person.

To incorporate a little metallic glam into my Halloween decor, I used DecoArt Metallic Lustre in Copper Kettle.

For this faux metallic sign, I also played with Silver Spark and Black Shimmer, but in the end the copper made the etched wood pop against the black chalkboard.

You can easily layer this paint on top of itself. After buffing firmly in various places, the black shimmer popped through giving the whole sign a bit of a weathered finish.
