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 was on a old kitchen door believe or not and not even waxed yet. Tomorrow's job! Now just imagine on an old big Amore or something. Ouuuuu! love the fact I found a way without sanding.Hmmm! may have to introduce this to my Advance Class at the Big White Goose,what do you think?

    Why couldn't I dry brush acrylic paint over chalk then wax it?

    That is GORGEOUS.

    But I have to ask: How did you do the layering? I know the last couple of layers were dry-brushed in, but what about the rest? Just sort of going with it? Did you do a wash?

    I Love this look I was thinking of a small kitchen open to living area maybe more of a lighter back ground but do you think it would be ok for kitchen cabinets?

    I would like your opinion on how to paint these pieces. I don’t know how to do the grooves or raised panels. Not really wanting the layered paint look. Please help!

      I would use a water based gel stain in a tiny bit darker color and seal with a water based poly. Beautiful furniture!
