HOW TO MAKE PAINT DIPPED UTENSILS
Bamboo or Wooden Cooking utensils
Painter’s tape (blue)
Food safe shellac and sealer
First, decide how far down onto the handle you want your paint to go (there is no right or wrong here). Then, use your painter’s tape and wrap a very straight line around the utensil handle. Note, your line MUST be straight, or your pain line will be crooked. Seal the paint tightly around the handle so there are no gaps.
Paint a thin, even layer over the handle, painting down onto the tape. Place handle up in a jar or glass and let dry for 30 minutes. If needed, apply a second coat.
The final step is to seal the paint with shellac. It is extremely important that you use one that is safe for food since you will use these for cooking
Allow the utensils to dry, according to shellac instructions, and then remove the tape. That’s it! You’ve got custom utensils to use in your kitchen.
In order to ensure the paint does not come off, wash them by hande. But, keep in mind that scrubbing too hard can also remove the paint.
