Every year, as February 14th rolls around, the pressure to secure that perfect date jumps into overdrive. But the famed Valentine’s day date doesn’t have to be a constant source of anxiety. Focus on what the holiday is truly about: spending time with the people that you love. While those traditional dates are a great way to spend your day, why not try something more creative and personal, something a little unconventional: painting your fireclay sink. Get ready to set aside the time to plan out his one of a kind, stay at home paint and sip session to make this Valentine’s date special.
Before we get deep into the process of it all, lets air a few things: This activity will be using washable paint. We realize these are very expensive high-end sinks. You work hard to be able to maintain this design aesthetic, and the sink itself, and we don’t want it to cause any permanent damage. Our fireclay sinks are very difficult to permanently change, design wise. These sinks are painted, glazed and protected in order to protect and keep themselves in top of the line condition. Due to those precautionary steps, we do not recommend aiming for a permanent change.
There are a few simple steps and materials that you will need before you let your creativity flow:
Materials: 1. Paint Brushes: These can be bought at any craft store and come in all the sizes under the sun. General use brushes usually aren’t that pricey, so make sure you get all the sizes that you want. We recommend larger bristled brushes for larger more general areas and smaller ones for more precise details.
