Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:2-3 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    For the sample shown, there are two pears and one each of a red apple, orange, banana, pomegranate and lemon. Note that the grapes will not work with this technique because it is made of a different material than the other fruit.
  • 2
    Place fruit on protective work surface. It is best to work on this outside and with proper ventilation. Follow directions on cans.
  • 3
    Since the Fluorescent Spray Paint is more translucent, the primer is best to use to cover surface of fruit so that you will have a bright, opaque color on the fruit.
  • 4
    Following directions on can on use of Primer Spray paint cover one side of fruit. Let dry completely. Turn fruit over and prime other side.
  • 5
    Separate out the fruit based on the colors you want to spray (you don't want to get any overspray onto the fruit that is to be a different color!).
  • 6
    Again following the directions on the can, spray the fruit. Take your time and don't over spray in one space or the paint will drip. Patience is a virtue...but it will be worth it.
  • 7
    Make sure that the fruit is completely dry before turning to complete spraying the remaining areas.
  • 8
    Place in a clear or white bowl for an optimum eye-catching display!
