  • craft paint

Determine Paint Line

Apply painter's tape to each wooden utensil (Image 2). If you want the painted handles to be precise on each utensil, then mark the height with a ruler and duplicate.

Paint Utensils

Using a foam paintbrush, apply craft paint to the handle of each utensil. Allow each utensil to dry in an upright container. Add more coats if necessary.

Apply Shellac

Once paint has dried, apply a high-gloss, food-safe shellac and sealer to give handles an enameled look. Use and let dry according to product instructions.
