The Association for Creative Industries (formerly The Craft & Hobby Industry) hosts a yearly tradeshow for brands to showcase their latest and greatest products and new trends. Retailers, media, and bloggers come from around the globe to discover what is going to be hot in our industry. This was my second year attending Creativation but it was even more special than the first year because Krylon® Spray Paint asked me to be their featured designer at their influencer event. I have been working with Krylon on a campaign for the past 6 months and absolutely love and believe in their products, which makes it even more special to be recognized by their team. I was able to be one of the first people to test a few of their new products.... and I love them! The theme of the event was backyard party so I created serving pieces and a chalkboard menu to complete the party!
Spray paint is really fun to use on serving pieces but note, that food or beverage items should never touch paint. You can get creative by using clear plates or parchment paper on top of painted platters to protect food items. When painting pieces like candy jars or beverage dispensers, be sure to not get paint on the interior or lip of the jar.
