A small wicker bas­ket, dipped in white paint, evokes the sun-bleached sand of a day at the beach. The bas­ket is dipped slowly into a tub of white matt emul­sion paint, un­til the de­sired line is reached, and then grad­u­ally drawn out. The worst of the drips are al­lowed to fall or gen­tly wiped away with a cloth, with care taken not to touch the bas­ket it­self. It is then hung to dry out­side above sev­eral sheets of news­pa­per, which will catch any fur­ther drips. The charm of the bas­ket lies in its rus­tic feel, which is en­hanced by the ir­reg­u­lar line of the paint. Once dry, it can be used as a planter, to hold a pot of flow­ers. Plac­ing it on a wall out­side, where it can be fur­ther bleached by the sun, en­hances the nat­u­ral drift­wood ef­fect and small items col­lected on a beach­side hol­i­day, com­plete the dis­play.
