Chalk Painted Buffet Gets Glazed August 2, 2013
Hello, dear friend!,
You may recall that a few weeks ago,a customer at the shop was downsizing. She brought a wonderful buffet to the shop, and it has slowly made a change for the better!
Solid as a rock, she weighs more than a Sumo Wrestler! I made a custom mix of Old Town Paint’s Mocha and Dark Gray. 50/50. I just put one cost on the sides and front and two coats on the top, for good measure.
I had never glazed until a few months ago. I really like it and am going to experiment with different shades. It’s important to put a poly down first, or I’ve found that the glaze will act as a stain to the paint. With the poly on first, it’s as easy as painting the glaze on and wiping off as much as you want, with a wet sponge. Very cool!
Come meet her in person, at the shop, tomorrow, 10:30 til 4:30!
If I don’t see you, have a great weekend!!
