Annie Sloan style on the cheap...
I used Pittsburgh Ultra paint~'Knight's Armour'.
1 1/2 C. paint, 1/4 C. Plaster Paris, 1/4 C. hot water
mix good, then paint, it covers great.
so in this process I completely waxed on a layer
of Johnson's paste wax, let it dry and buffed,
then lightly sanded edges to distress...
then I put on another coat of wax adding
a dab of silver latex paint to my wax brush
and painted it on all over the surface,
then buff when dry.
metallic sheen sorta like zinc.
marvelously, with an awesome satin finish.
Always work with small batches,
as the paint becomes grainy in a day or so,
but this one batch I made covered all this stuff!
my cheapo version of the expensive
stipple brush...$2.00 on the cheap...lol!
of the shop...
I love to play with paint
and it doesn't have to cost you an
arm and a leg to do it...
JUST BE BRAVE...
AND CRAZY(it helps)
