A mid-blue with a softly aged industrial finish.

For this paint recipe, we walk you through how to create a soft industrial finish using one of our mid-toned blues.

This technique works really well with the mid-toned blues and greens. We've used Chiswick House but Morocco, Teal, Esmeralde and Christabelle would all work equally well.

What you will need:

  • Chiswick House Chalk Paint
  • Victorian Black Chalk Paint
  • Clear Wax
  • Gold Gilding Wax
  • Natural Bristle Brush
  • Pro-Hybrid Synthetic Brush

1 - Paint in Chiswick House using a pro-hybrid round synthetic brush. Paint in large crosses to create subtle texture.

2 - Paint a second coat for full coverage, adding 5% water.

3 - Create a coloured wax using Victorian Black chalk paint and Clear wax. Combine paint and wax in a 1:1 ratio. Brush on with a natural bristle brush and wipe off excess with a rag.

4 - Use gold gilding wax to highlight edges and details.
