Well, I'm back!!! I hate when my internet is down. I came home from using my husband's office computer and my internet was back up. Yay!!!
Anyway I said I would share a tutorial of how I paint and glaze. I am by no means a professional and I don't know what the correct way to do this is, but this is how I achieve the look I want.
I brush all the paint on. I do not use spray. Maybe some day I will use my husband's sprayer, but for now brushing it on is quick enough.
Just play with it until you get the look you want. That is what I do. Sometimes I reapply in just spots so that it will have several variations and depth to the color.
Minwax Paste Finishing Wax in Natural. It also comes in some stain colors and I have not tried those yet. I know some people use those to glaze with, but I prefer the other glaze.
I hope that helps some of you who want to try this. It really isn't hard. I think it is fun watching a piece of furniture morph into something different with just paint, glaze and wax.
Lately I have been buying Sherwin Williams paint samples which are only $3 for a quart. More than enough for these projects. I have a lot of leftover paint.
On this piece I also added some gel stain in spots and wiped it off to add more depth. Like I said just play around with it until it has the look you want. If you don't like it you can always repaint it.
Just remember it is only paint.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
