Art Deco Inspired Scene by Painter in Residence Jonathon Marc Mendes


This delightful Art Deco scene was created by my Painter in Residence Jonathon Marc Mendes using Chalk Paint®Clear Chalk Paint® Wax and Brass Leaf. That lovely little table was picked up at a local junk shop for a mere £5! Jonathon transformed its look with a striking 1930s font and chevron design. 







Jonathon started by lightly sanding the melamine tabletop to create a rough texture for the paint to adhere to. He then painted two coats of Old White to form the background of his design. Marking his designs out in pencils first, he painted the chevrons in a monochrome palette of Graphite, French Linen and a mix of them both for a lovely gradient. Gold Size was applied in squares on the tabletop and on the edge of the table, ready for Brass Leaf.

 

Jonathon then mixed Arles, Emperor’s Silk and Old White to paint the table legs and the lamp. The colour is very similar to Scandinavian Pink, just a little warmer. A coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax seals the work, and leaves the surface wipeable.

The overall look is chic and stylish, perfectly elegant and very Jonathon Marc Mendes. Perfect work!

  3. I am a religious user of this AMAZING paint but why not use a plastic can to avoid rust? It is so difficult and frustrating finding pieces of rust in my paint.
