Old Worldly Green Chalk Paint Recipe

Old Worldly Green

Regular price $0.00

Create a beautiful, rich old world feel in green.

This paint recipe works well with dark wood tones and would look great on a piece with a refinished wood top.

For this recipe we've used a base of Olea, but try with Dusky Fields for a lighter finish or Old Denim to recreate it in blue.

What you will need:

1 - Paint in Olea chalk paint using your round synthetic brush. Paint in large crosses to create subtle texture. Do a second coat if needed for full coverage and lightly sand any excess texture off.

2 - Make a coloured wax using Carbon Black chalk paint and Clear wax, using a 1:1 ratio. Using your natural bristle brush, brush out all over the paint finish in a thin layer, gently wipe excess off with a clean rag.

3 - Using fine steel wool, pull your Carbon Black wax back to create highlights and to blend your finish together.

4 - Optional: Detail the edges with Gold gilding wax, using either a finger or a detail brush.
