Moody & Edgy, Industrial Greys & Blacks Paint Recipe
This industrial look is a great way to create a moody and edgy feel.
For this paint recipe, we walk you through how to create a moody and edgy industrial look using grey and black.
This technique works best with the greys. For a lighter finish try Dove as a base with CLoudburst wax; or, for a really dark finish try Midnight for the base with Victorian Black wax.
What you will need:
- Cloudburst Chalk Paint
- Victorian Black Chalk Paint
- Clear Wax
- Silver Gilding Wax
- Natural Bristle Brush
- Pro-Hybrid Synthetic Brush
1 - Paint in Cloudburst chalk paint using the round synthetic brush. Paint in all directions to create plenty of texture.
2 - Add 5% water to the paint for the second coat and paint to achieve full coverage.
3 - Make a coloured wax using Victorian Black chalk paint and Clear wax, using a 1:1 ratio. Brush on with a natural bristle brush and wipe off excess with a rag.
4 - To create highlights, pull back the coloured wax using fine (0000 grade) steel wool.
5 - Detail the edges with Silver gilding wax, use either a finger or a detail brush.
