Slice of Summer E-Pattern by Vicki Saum
PDF Download includes color photo, drawings and full painting instructions.
Surface: I painted this project on an old Igloo 3 Gallon water cooler. I think this pattern would also be great on a milk can. I find most of my pieces at flea markets and garage sales. I look for dents or dings to get a good price and think it only adds character to the piece. Feel free to enlarge of reduce this pattern to fit your surface.
