There is a plastic pitcher at Party City and several other places (previously mentioned in different threads). I bought one for $8 but it was just too ugly to bring to the table! I painted it tan (outside only) with the spray paint for plastic, then wetbrushed brown acrylic paint over it and wiped off the excess. When it's dry, I'll give it a clear coat spray. I doubt that it will be dishwaher safe but it should be OK to handwash.

Here is before and after, it won't win any awards but it's better than nuthin'

This project came off real well and is a good example of what can be done with all the craptacular Teekeeee-Parteeee! stuff out there.

I took the liberty of re-posting your post and pictures (with additional rambling about this painting technique) in in the
Tiki-On-A-Budget thread.

Thanks WoofMutt, that's a great place for that post. Is there a way for me to delete this topic since it's now a duplicate?
