painted using a "Waxed Paint" technique. Annie used French Linen, which is a dark grey, then brushed on a layer of clear wax. Over this, and before the wax had completely dried, she added a second, paler coat of paint (a color wash) made from a mix of Paris Grey and Old White, thinned down with water, wiping it over with a clean, dry cloth to create a washed, dragged, and distressed effect.
This walnut sideboard is painted with Chalk Paint™ a blend of Louis Blue and Paris Grey with a wash of Old Ochre. It's finished with both clear and Dark Wax and the top was left natural.
two-color distressed technique using Graphite Chalk Paint® as the first coat and inside the drawer, plus Emperor's Silk as the top color. Both Clear and Dark Waxes have been used. Clear is always used first.
