From a paint class and a student. Emerald, wipe of Cadet Blue, Tranquil Sea, Copper Penny and just beautiful.
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.
This little plant stand was painting first with a coat of antique white so it would come through when sanded. Followed by Sunset Acrylic-Chalk Paint. Topped with a mix of Sheer and Cocoa Liquid Wax (4 to 1 ratio) to Deepen the color while protecting it.
This Potting Bench is used in Two Dogs and A Paintbrush's booth as a display. Layered with Bridgewater Blue and Saltwash (a paint additive), Cathedral and Fresh Cream. Prior to putting the Fresh Cream on I randomly put Terra Bella's Crackle on it. Between the Saltwash and the crackle, it gives the bench a weathered look. One day, it will be used as a real potting bench. Can't wait.
