Transformed from a cheap plastic mini gumball machine to a distressed vintage look using Decoart Americana acrylic paint!

This was so much fun to do and very quick as its only 11cm high.
I will be demonstrating these techniques along with a few others at the Craft Barn Extravaganza, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June, follow the link to find out all about it, it’s going to be a great weekend!
Here are a few pictures of it’s transformation.
