Each color has a 12×12 inch board featuring various glazes and/or waxes, and a 6×12 board showing the color one coated and lightly burnished with 400 grit sand paper.
The paint finish, once dry, will be chalky and matte, and does not require a sealer or wax. You can glaze directly over the dried paint, it does not require a sealer first.
The bottom section of the 6×12 board is brushed with one coat of Reclaim Sealer to show the finish with a higher sheen.
- Cleaned with Deep Green
- Stencil a raised design -Caromal Textured Basecoat Wisteria. dry.
- paint each chair a different Botanical color. dry.
- recoat (use some water to create more of a wash) if necessary.
- brush chipping creme on back slats. dry.
- brush second botanical color over slats. dry
- brush Gardenia over bottom rungs, wipe off with rag.
- sand to reveal stencil design, and anywhere else if desired.
Brushed on a coat of Reclaim Sealer to the top 1/2 of the chair. It added a soft sheen, plus will be more dirt and water resistant. Left the bottom 1/2 of chair unsealed.
Adding just a little water to the Sealer – you don’t have to do this, but I did. I like to use a spray bottle, and just ‘mist mist mist’ (like 2 or 3 little pppssht’s) over the plate. That’s it – then stir it around w/your brush –
