Tips for creating a colour wash:

  1. Water your premium chalk paint down by up to 50%. Play with how dark or light you want your colour wash to be.
  2. You can layer as many washes as you would like.
  3. You don't need to use your wash all over but can instead focus on carved details that you would like to highlight.
  4. Use a clean lint-free rag and keep moving to a clean section otherwise you won't be able to remove as much paint.
