NO SANDING LAYERED LOOK USING CHALK PAINT®BY ANNIE SLOAN


NO SANDING LAYERED LOOK PEOPLE. So here is the thing, you can get this look two ways, layering the paint and then sanding through each layer, or as I was playing around with today and fell in love with, was layering, with large flat brush and chip brush alternatively. My base was French Linen, then Paris Grey, Old Violet, Old White, Provence, Florence. Then dry brushing French Linen and Old White again.

    This is the way I am doing my crates and I love it! Each crate has turned out just a little different but has the same colors involved. Of course, I sanded the crates at the beginning because they were raw. But I didn't have to sand between paint colors. And if I didn't like how a spot turned out, I could either dry brush over it with another color or I could have sanded it down. It was fun and easy! I finished them with matte clear coat made for chalk paint - spray on.

    These crates are going in my closet, hanging on the wall in a nook, for my tall boots. I will be adding a shelf (or shelves) in one or 2 for shorter boots. Can't wait to get them finished and hung!! (I started this project almost 3 months ago...!)
