NOTE Avoid painting the serving end of the utensils as the paint may be toxic.
1 Use masking tape and newspaper to cover the section of the utensil that you don’t want to spray paint.
2 Lightly sand the exposed handle to remove any existing varnish, making it easier for the paint to adhere.
3 Spray on a few coats of spray paint. Hold the paint can about 15cm from the item and wait until each coat is dry before applying the next.
4 Leave until completely dry, and then remove the newspaper and masking tape from the utensil.
