Don't you just love the yellow plastic handles? Lol. I've been dying to try the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on a project so now is the time. I got a can of paint and some clear and dark wax. I watched a few tutorials on YouTube but I probably should have watched a few more. :) it's not as easy as it sounds
Here I go. This is after the first coat. You really need to rush and just slap it on because it dries incredibly fast. And supposedly you are supposed to have brush strokes going every which way. Quite different than regular painting so it takes getting used to but after you get going it's fun to paint like a child.
A close up after the first coat. I want this piece to look a little old and weathered. After the 2nd coat was applied you add a coat of clear wax and let it set overnight. This morning was time to add the dark wax. This step was terrifying. Look at the color of the wax......
But everything I read said "don't fear the dark wax - just do it". So I did It. Now I know I need more practice with the dark wax. My technique isn't too great but I'm hoping tomorrow after I buff it and apply another coat of clear, it will look OK.
Not sure if you can see the weathering with the dark wax just applied
And for those of you who kept reading to the end, here's a little treat. This is a pic of Scout today - 5 days old
Awwwwww, I'm in love
