In this short how-to video tutorial we show you how to blend three different Stone Effects colours to create plenty of depth and texture.
Stone Effects is an amazing paint that gives a stone or concrete look on almost any surface. In this video we show you how to use it over a previously painted surface, but it can also be applied to a varnished surface, terracotta, ceramics, raw wood, metal and even plastic.
Using three different colours - Elephant Dust, Black Truffle and Rustic Rye - our spreading tools and a 1-inch Staalmeester flat brush, we blend the colours to create lots of depth and movement.
Tools recommended in this video:
- Stone Effects Paint - we've used Elephant Dust, Black Truffle and Rustic Rye
- Spreading Tools - we've used the Small, Medium and Large ones
- Staalmeester 1-Inch Flat Brush
- Olive Soap
Top tips when using Stone Effects:
- Use the spreading tools to create a troweled on stone effect, bending them to move the paint around.
- Use a small flat brush to get into hard to reach areas, i.e. around handles and hinges.
- Blend two to four colours together to create extra movement and depth. Use a light and a dark colour if only using two colours for contrast.
- Wash your brush in warm soapy water, we love using olive soap. Wash your spreading tools with water and a scrubbing brush.
- Have fun! Stone Effects is a very creative and forgiving paint and is a great paint to play with.
