Whenever I share a project I get a ton of emails and questions about the
paint colors I used and how the finish was applied.
There really isn’t an easy answer because I mix all my own colors
with the paints I have on hand.
I started doing this because I live in a rural area and a trip to town takes about two hours round trip.
So, it isn’t always feasible to run to the home improvement store to pick up
paint whenever the mood strikes.
I have about four main colors that I usually mix from and a few other ones like white and etc.
The four main colors are:
medium grey, light grey,bluish grey, and a lighter bluish grey.
The best way to achieve the look of an antique piece is to apply the paint in different layers
along with sanding and dry brushing.
I also use dark wax and clear wax on all the pieces to seal them
when I have achieved the desired look.
Have a great weekend!!!!
