Do Your Own: From Gold to Royal Blue

Ya' another watch? I apparently had a little watch fascination in my previous years. I have a hard time getting rid of old stuff as I believe I can revive them. clear*

Things you'll need:
Royal blue spray paint
Needle or pin
A sheer nail Polish
A old gold watch
Piece of thread
1/2 of a make up sponge

1. Take a strip of tape and place over the face of the watch. Use the pin and trace along the face this will cut the tape into the shape as the face. Thus preventing paint staining that area. Got this tip from Dwayne K Smith
2. Set newspaper at work area and spray the watch. Depending on the quality of paint one may need to do at least 2 coats for full coverage.
3. Place on a piece of thread, allow to hang and dry.
4. After its dried. Place 2-3 strokes of nail polish on the sponge; starting from the buckle of the watch dab upwards and stop 3/4 inch away from the face.
5. Allow to dry.
6. Remove tape from face
7. Enjoy

Happy recycling
God bless you

Tip: place lotion, oil or shea butter on hands up to elbows as to encourage easy removal of paint that may splatter onto skin.
