PREPARE: Always work in a well-ventilated area and use a drop cloth to protect from overspray.

PRIME: Shake your can of Stops Rust Clean Metal Primer for one minute after the mixing ball starts to rattle. Then, hold the can 10-16” away from the tub and spray in a steady, sweeping motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Spray two or more light coats onto the tub a few minutes apart.

PAINT: Next, shake your can of Stops Rust Metallic, we used Apple Red, Spray for one minute. Then, hold it 10-16” away from the tub and spray in the same way you sprayed the primer. Apply two or more light coats.

FINISH: Once the baskets are dry, fill them with birch wood logs or ornaments to complete the look!
