Dipped cutlery is very easy to do. Pick up some very inexpensive cutlery and a can of Plasti Dip. I got new everyday cutlery so I decided I would "dip" my old set. I choose red Plasti Dip at my favorite Home Hardware store. There were some other color options: black, yellow, and white. Plasti Dip is a rubberized coating to use on tool handles etc.
I did this by holding onto the end of the utensil and dipping the handle into the Plasti Dip. I dipped each piece twice. Once did not coat enough for the look I wanted. I poked the end underneath a heavy box and let them sit to dry. I left them overnight to be sure.
When they are first dipped you no longer see any pattern on the utensil.
Once they are completely dry, you can see the pattern again.
Note: I do not put these in the dishwasher, because I'm not sure if it would ruin the coating.
This tablescape is a tribute to my wonderful country.
See the Canada Day Tablescape HERE. :)
Now that the cutlery is done, I may try dipping the stems of some glassware. What else could I do with my Plasti Dip? Any ideas?
