For all you iRiders who are equally as obsessed with colour blocking as we are then this fun DIY exercise is for you!
- Use a foam brush to apply an even coat of liquid gilding paint all over the front and edges of a new horseshoe. Since the gilding paint is oil based, I prefer using a disposable foam brush to do this so you don’t have to mess with paint thinner. Allow it to dry completely, about 1 hour.
- Tear off a small piece of washi tape and wrap it around the horseshoe, about an inch of the end. Do this to the other side and the middle section.
- Use a flat paint brush to paint a coat of white craft paint on the middle and left and right ends of the horseshoe. Be sure to paint away from the edges of the tape to prevent the paint from bleeding underneath. Allow that to dry, then paint 2-3 coats of whatever color you would like. When you are done, carefully remove the tape and allow the horseshoe to dry completely. Then grabs some nails and hang it on your wall!
You can also use old, previously used horseshoes for this. I recommend using sandpaper or steel wool to remove any rust that might be on them and help smooth the surface.
