First, tape off a few sections of the spoon with painters tape. The sections that you tape off will remain the natural wood. You will be painting the parts of the spoon that still show. Two to three tape marks should do the trick.
Then, apply acrylic paint with the foam brush to the visible sections. Let dry in between coats. You will need two to three coats. Allow to dry completely.
Using the white pain pen, write the name of each vegetable or herb on your spoons.
Spray with clear acrylic sealer before using outside.
