Materials to decorate a Christmas tree Pintyplus universal primer or Pintyplus plastic primer PintyPlus Chalk Paint spray in turquoise and white broken PintyPlus gloss varnish PintyPlus Removable adhesive spray Frost powder (silver glitter) How to decorate a Christmas tree with chalk paint The following video (Spanish language) shows the whole process to totally transform this Christmas tree:
Step 1 - Prime As it is a plastic tree we started with Pintyplus universal primer, but you could also use the primer for Pintyplus plastics. We recommend applying a thin layer and wait one hour before painting with chalk paint spray. If you wanted to skip the Primer step you could use a colour from our Basic or Evolution range which both have good adhesion to plastics without the need for a primer.
Step 2 - Paint
We applied Pintyplus spray paint in turquoise giving a fine coat all over the tree. To give it a more Christmas look, the tree was finished with a little Pintyplus chalk paint in broken white in some areas. It gives a very beautiful winter air.
Step 3 - Give it a touch of glitter Before finishing it, Almudena gave it the final touch with silver frost dust. First sprinkle some Pintyplus removable adhesive on the leaves so that the glitter will stick, then he applied water-based spray varnish to fix it permanently to the leaves
