DIY Bees…I need your help!
My wedding is music related and I was planning to use vinyl records as the charger plates. I was going to paint them gold. Well today I find out that my venue only allows NEW records and doesn’t allow spray paint as it goes against the county health code. Such a total bummer! My tables are important to me and I don’t want to use anything else.
Any creative bees out there know of another way to make records gold besides paint??

shamrock14: You could dip them in liquid gold paint or just paint them with a brush and liquid paint if you want to preserve the labels.
You could also use gold leaf. They have fake gold leaf now that looks very realistic but isn’t so costly. You will need to add a clear coat protection on top of the gold leaf.

http://www.amazon.com/AMACO-Metallic-Finish-0-5-Fluid-Ounce/dp/B00081HYDC There’s a product called Rub N Buf that you could use to make them gold, but it would be a ton of work, depending on how many you need to do. A little goes a long way but I’ve only ever seen it sold in small tubes. You’d need plenty and they aren’t cheap.
If they’ll be used as chargers, no one will be able to really tell they’re records once the dishes are out, so why not use gold chargers and print out labels like records…fake it?
