Painted Bamboo Cutlery

Created By: Marion Brenner


Transform reusable bamboo utensils with a few deft strokes of model paint, which can withstand hand-washing. 

To create stripes, tape off the areas you don't want painted using painters' tape; then paint, let dry, and ring the picnic bell.

    Pretty, but toxic.
