I think I read in one of Annie Sloan's older books that she added mineral spirits to her dark wax to create a glaze..what do you think?
Janet - I will definitely give that a try....on a test board of course. I love your latest beachy cabinet!
Did you try it? I'm going to start doing a few pieces in my "spare" time
I will try it today HandyANDY - I also want to remove wax - only the wax not the stain - from a table top so I can seal it with Varathane. I'm going to try wiping it down with mineral spirits.
Did you paint the chest with water or oil based products?
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint...
flying off the New Orleans sunday to meet the queen herself...annie Sloan!!!! I'm so excited!!
I've considered going to the workshop in Leesburg but am not sure what I would get out of it. I've already taken Patty's workshop and have been practicing the different techniques. Bragging rights may be worth the trip "Trained by Annie Sloan" -- sorry can't call her the Queen as I'm the only Queen in my book. LOL Have a great time and a safe trip.
If we don't call our ownselves Queen, then who else will? (lol). Sorry you are stuck at home without a car today, but at least you have a project to work on... I would rahter do that then the laundry, etc that I put off until today.
Janet - how was the workshop?
