the gray birthday chair for Susan..
.then came knee surgery and a break...
|I found this lantern at a yard sale for $3. |
|Carefully remove all glass panels.|
|Step 1: Using Annie Sloan CoCo, paint all sections of lantern (no small feat!)|
The lantern has now been painted, distressed and clear waxed.
|#4. Using a brush just for dark wax, repeat the waxing procedure |
except this time, use AS's Dark wax.
Leave excess wax in areas that you want to appear darker.
Carefully wax in small sections at a time.
The wax dries quickly. If too much dark wax is applied,
use a small amount of clear wax on a rag to wipe away the excess.
Do NOT cover the entire project with dark wax and then try to wipe it off.
Work in small sections ONLY!
One other pointer: I always wax with clear wax before I use the dark.
The dark wax grabs onto the paint and seeps into the pores
and is usually too dark for my taste.
(This is, of course, a matter of preference.)
|#5. After the wax dries 30 minutes to overnight,|
buff with a soft cloth.
|I love this, so very much....|
What have you done with Annie Sloan paint lately?
