Did you realize that you can mix the different powders
of milk paint to create custom colors?
I wanted to make a pink milk paint color~
so I mixed up Tricycle red with Ironstone white.
Its a bit brighter than I might have wanted~but all you would have
to do is add more of the white color of milk paint to make if less pink....
This milk paint chipped off in a big way
giving me a very rustic looking piece.
Just what I was hoping for!
So have some fun mixing your milk paint colors~
I worked on this table~ a small formerly brown coffee table sat and sat in my store...
Damon decided to buy it as long as I would paint it to go with his other things~
Its in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint~Old White with a wash
of Duck Egg and Louis Blue in different areas.
The other piece on the work bench is the
Chippendale bench I had done in pastels~
it was time to rework it.
This got a wash of Duck Egg over the Old Ochre base~
I wanted to use the Patina Gilding Paste over the carved areas.
I also made a wash with King Gold gilding wax~
and combined together on top of the Duck Egg Chalk Paint
it looked much like an antique from some French palace!~! Woohoo!
French Palace relic??
Back in stock at the store and online
is the popular Parisian Apartment clock~
It also has the verdis-gris look much like the settee.
Damon was happy I finished his petite coffee table~
that way he gets a ride home from work too!
I offer free delivery to Damon!
And we were so pleased to meet Justin's new GF last night~Madison!
She is very lovely and we had a great time together over the dinner table.
I know you guys haven't seen much of my house lately~so here we
are in my kitchen (the one with the Chalk Paint on the cabinets)!!
Life goes on, with or without a store to run...and that includes having
small dinner parties and trying to clean and cook.
