I'm a paint layer.
I love to see the way colors blend
and lay next to each other.
So I lay them down
sometimes one layer at a time
and sometimes 2 or 3 colors on one brush.
Today I'm working on
two tables that will live in a lake home.
Layers of paint color gave them new life.
Double loading a large flat brush with
white and camel
give the legs of the table
a creamy old look.
Raw Sienna and Yellow Ochre for the
golden brown drop and drawer.
Then I triple loaded my brush
dipping in 3 colors,
aqua, raw sienna, and sea breeze.
Brush back and forth
creating color depth and separation.
If you want a more blended look,
If you want more color separation,
If you think your brush is running out of paint
too quickly, dip your brush in water
and then load.
For more depth and dimension,
dry brush raw sienna and brown in places.
I even dry brushed black on some edges.
(dipping in black paint and rubbing it off
on a paper towel, then applying)
For the Red and Aqua table,
I based in aqua and covered over with red
and then added some aqua on top again.
On the lampstand base,
I double loaded Dark Aqua and brown
for the top coat
and let some red base show through.
It's fun to experiment with color combinations.
So easy to change.
So fun to see shabby little brown
and unused furniture
become the life of the party.
Hope you're all up to something fun too!
