¿Cómo encontraste este foro?-Y este tema
Sorry, no Spanish. Wonderful planters - what have they been coated with to make them smooth and which paint was used? This is a really inspriational thread.
Well done gardengirl...I really think I would like to have go and your tips will certainly help.
Yeah I do not speak Spanish, I was looking it up on the computer something like enamel exterior (painting of ships) I guess that is what makes them shiny Look good though.
Don't know if that paint is water based probably expensive to get hold of?
Well that good more people inspired by the tyre planters
I came to this forum through Google Images.
the soft is because what you see inside the tire, they are turned
I use enamel paint exterior (paint boats)
have made ??????over a hundred different tires, if you want to see some step by step, I look at my blog
Boat paint is cheap because once it is already well covered
other outer enamel paints require paint twice
the advantage of painting boat is its duration, many years as the first day
Hi Lidia Cabanella
Thanks for that - thats good to know you only need to paint once, would be a pain to keep painting to keep them looking good.
Where do you buy the paint? Is it sold in boat shops?
Does it come in all different colours like yellow, is the paint shiny because it is for the outer surface of a boat?
Is that ok to paint on rubber it does not melt the tyre? The only thing suggest to me from a paint company was masonry paint which is water based and which they do not come in many colours so not great.
Gardengirl-look for marine paint-it is not cheap
Oh I'm sooo glad I joined GW forums.
These are great Gardengirl, well done for not giving up think I'dve rolled the damn thing away before now but they look great.
Lidia Cabanella's are beautiful too.
Have you decided on the colours yet although they look great washed black and the plant will set them off beautifully.
Any ideas what your going to plant up in them yet?
Please keep us posted with piccys
la pintrua de barcos tiene pocos colores, pero yo los mezclo entre si y consigo muchos más
un bote de pintura son 9 euros y tienes para pintar 8 neumáticos
se compran en tiendas especializadas de pinturas
por ejemplo, no existe el rosa y para hacer el cerdo mezclé rojo y blanco
sirve para pintar el caucho, las llantas y los tapacubos de plástico
los neumáticos que no se pintan, se acaban poniendo de un color blanco gris
no mantienen el negro

que son preciosas! ¿Te pintar el interior también?
Does that mean the rubber tyre fades?
I see what you mean sotongeoff some paint on Internet companies are bit expensive to buy.
What a amazing planter with the owl on. well done on that planter.
Not sure if this is any good or if they have colours but I found this
Or maybe what the grafitti artists use Montana or Krylon may work and they have a full range of colours.
Just had a thought Gardengirl-why not wander down to Hamble boat yard and you might find some tins with dribbles in the bottom-enough to paint a tyre
Or you could ask if they will throw them your way for free-we all have tins of paint with an inch of paint in them that we never use- they could be the same
The inside of the tyre ends up being the outside as they have been turned inside out.
Not sure about spraying the tyres but I will think about that thanks.
muchas gracias Sotongeoff por la traducción
