THE COLORS

DSC_2411

NAVAJO WHITE, HOME PLATE, PLYMOUTH ROCK.

NAVAJO WHITE – a soft true white.  Like color – CeCe Simply White

The Light and Dark Waxes are AMAZING over the lighter colors – the wax samples shown here have NO barrier coat first –  soft and subtle and safe enough to use right over the raw clay/chalk/mineral paints

top left topcoat finish, top right clear wax, bottom left light vintage wax, bottom right dark vintage wax.

The APC paint brushes out quite nice.  My brush strokes are longer and leaner,  less paint on my surface  but still covering  as I go, whereas when I use the CeCe I like to glide the paint out a little thicker.     I still like to do a quick second coat wash (adding some water) and a light sanding, but I’m finding there is a little less sanding with the APC paint, maybe because I’m  brushing  it out leaner-

HOME PLATE -creamy vintage white.   Like color – CeCe Vintage White

The paint finish can be light sanded with a 180-220 grit paper to quickly refine the finish (knocks down any brush strokes, etc).  You can also take a damp rag and rub your edges to reveal your undercolor.  Do all this fiddling BEFORE you seal the paint…
