Non-toxic paints in bright, neon colors
Step 1: Begin by taping off the handles of your utensils using narrow strips of the masking tape. Create a chevron pattern by overlapping two strips to for a point, or angle thicker strips for a interesting stripe pattern.
Step 2: Once tape is in place as you like it, begin painting the handles using thin, even brush strokes.
Step 3: Allow paint to dry thoroughly before removing tape and use a small brush for any touch-ups you may need to perfect your design!
