Candy Corn Rocking A Tray!

Who else thinks candy corn rocks?!!!
It's especially delicious if you mix it with peanuts. The perfect ratio is one candy corn with 2 peanuts. It tastes just like a Payday candy bar! Try it if you haven''ll be surprised at how good it is. 

Enough about eating! Let's get to the project...

I've had this tray in my garage forever. Well, probably not forever, but at least a year. I used it in a demonstration at a milk paint class I was teaching.

I've gone back and forth with what to do with it. It's large enough that I thought I might use it as a table top.
But, then I was inspired by the cute CANDY CORN ROCKS charm that I added to this cuff bracelet...

So, I painted the tray black and then used chalk to sketch a piece of candy corn...

I painted the piece of candy corn with white acrylic paint to work as a primer over the black...

Then I painted each section with the colors of candy corn. I added a little black at the edges so it wouldn't look so flat...

I painted the words, candy corn rocks, with white, then yellow, and then orange...

I painted black stripes over the letters...

Once the paint was dry, I used a damp rag to wipe away the chalk, then I sealed the tray with tung oil.

And, yes! Candy Corn Rocks!!!

Do you mix candy corn with anything? 
If so, please share your concoction!
