I Call It My Pokemon Painted Tier Table

DSC_2248

American Paint Company is our go-to for all natural chalk/clay/mineral based paint.  On this table I start with four greens –  Nana’s Cupboard, Waistcoat, Home Turf,  and Liberty.  One coat gets brushed on, using one brush but dipping and dabbing into all four colors…

When it was dry, I used the same colors again, but this time I used a credit card scraper and ‘scraped’ the chalk paint mix over a stretched out piece of cheese cloth.  Below, you can see the cheesecloth buried under the paint

Once you get the cheesecloth fully scraped over, wait a minute and then remove it by pulling straight up

then let everything dry.   It won’t give you super heavy, or consistantly even texture, because the paint is not real thick, but it lets you know something was there!

Then I took American Paint  A-maizing Yellow and Orange Grove  to mix and make a yellow-orange-

and added that accent color, to equally pop alongside those vibrant greens…

This view above, made me think back to when my kids were little, and playing with Pokemon figurines

Yes, we could have left it like that – but not this time.  The last step was to give the whole table a light thin watered down coating of Navajo White , my favorite favorite favorite natural white.

Thin light coating scrubbed on,  let dry, light sand to reveal the texture and pretty colors beneath, then coat with clear wax to seal –
