Wax Melt Warmer Makeover

 

Hello! I have had this wax melt for awhile now and I was never quite happy with the color. So I decided to give it a bit of a makeover! It went from a mustard yellow to a glittery silver that I absolutely love! I found this wax melt warmer at a housewares outlet for only $1 USD so I didn't mind that I wasn't a big fan of the color. I knew that I wanted it to match with my bedroom so I just painted over it with some acrylic paint. In case you don't know I'm a HUGE fan of anything glittery and sparkly! I love the way that it turned out and it was really easy! Here's a before and after photo so you can see the transformation: 



All I did was use 3 different paints to achieve this super glittery finish! I also used a sponge to apply the paint.


I picked these up a few years ago at Michael's Crafts, but I believe that you can still get them in store. I really do recommend using sand paper to rough up the glossy finish before painting. I just completely forgot this step and it made it harder for the paint to stick. I used two coats of the white to get rid of the yellow. I ended up using a sponge to apply the paint (I totally forgot to take pictures!) because it was easier than using a brush. I found that dabbing the paint onto the warmer was a lot easier than trying to use long strokes. I know that acrylic paint dries relatively fast, but to be safe I let each coat dry overnight. After the 2 coats of white I applied 1 coat of the silver paint and 2 coats of the silver glitter. That's all it took to make over this wax melt warmer. Do you use a wax melt warmer? Please feel free to leave your answer in the comments below. 

See you soon,

  10. Because of the heat intensity does the paint chip or come off any? That was my only concern about redoing my warmers
