This just shows how creative one can be when painting furniture. This piece was transformed using Antique Lace, Tranquil Sea, Cathedral and Cloudy Skies. Followed with Sheer Liquid Wax for protection. Artist: Susan @ Precious Pick'ens
When using waxes of any kind, it is best to first apply 1-2 coats of a clear wax. Same goes with using Liquid Waxes. However as a cheat, you can do 1 coat of sheer, then mix 4:1 ratio of Sheer Liquid Wax (or any of our Varnishes) with a tinted wax: Ebony or Cocoa. Another great hint is to add a few drops of extender to give your self a little more working time. And when applying, check with your retailer if they have the Applicator Sponge - makes applying so easy.
Mixing Colors is so fun and gives our large range of colors even more options. What I love about this is seeing this before and after is the amazing transformation. The piece has so many details that now make it look so rich and updated.
The best way to get a color like this is to start with a base color and then add the darker color to it to get the color you are looking for. It is always best to mix, paint a sample, let dry and then see if that is the color you are trying to achieve. Always follow up with one of our Protect & Seals to protect your work.
