Beautiful finish...chalk paint over gold...........The first color was mixed from Provence and Paris Grey. But in some areas the Provence is left to show a bit more. Then white was dry brushed on. Use a damp cotton rag to rub off some of the paint. went back and forth with dry brushing white paint, letting it almost dry and then waxing it until the paint began to come off . Then painting again and wiping that off in some places. With the chalk paint, you want it to set up and be more dry if you are using the damp cloth to distress it. Don't wipe too soon, or too much will come off. Wait until it dries too much, and it is just more work, but it will still come off. A kitchen scrubby works wonders if it gets dry before you get back to it. But again, the scrubby and the cloth will give you slightly different looks. Dark wax was then used, buffed, maybe another dry brushing, then the clear wax was applied and buffed last. You just play with and see how your piece looks with each step until you get what you want for yourself. In the end, it looked like a very old, time worn finish. Annie Sloan Chalk paint and wax. The paint is about $35 a quart, and often runs another $10+ shipping depending how many cans your order. It is usually cheaper to buy more than one can at a time. There is the huge advantage of being able to paint without much prep. Just clean the item well, and start painting. No sanding or primer usually. Than in itself is the reason most people think it is worth the price after using it. Because they have a flat rate shipping fee by the amount you spend and the per quart price is the lowest anyone has, try Robyn Story Designs.
