For Agnieszka Krawczyk's fourth Painters in Residence project she used my paint, Chalk Paint®, and her signature layering technique on this old wooden sea trunk.
Agnieszka used one of my Pure Bristle brushes to paint thick, textured layers of Provence, Duck Egg Blue, Greek Blue, Old White and Pure on the outside of the chest. She applied some of the colours directly from the tin, and mixed others together to create lighter shades. Then she used a scraper, putty knife and sandpaper to chip and scrape away at the painted surface. Agnieska always distresses her paint work manually, and never uses an electric sander – this gives her a lot more control and creates a less uniform finish.
Agnieszka painted the inside of the chest in Provence, and then finished the piece by applying my Clear Soft Wax to protect the finish.
What do you think? Have you ever used my paint to update a wooden trunk like this?
