My gift to you is this next project from my Painter in Residence, Beau Ford, who lives and works in South-West Australia. Beau was inspired by drip painting, often used by abstract artists such as Jackson Pollock, and has completely transformed this linen chest using this technique with Chalk Paint®!
The linen chest started life as an orange-toned, shiny piece of furniture and looked outdated in the modern home. Beau painted the chest in Provence to create a base colour, and then mixed Greek Blue, Antibes and Olive with varying amounts of water. Beau painted these colours on to the side of the chest and allowed the paint to drip down the surface. Once the paint had dried Beau applied my Soft Clear Wax to protect the surface.
What do you think? Would you ever try a similar technique using Chalk Paint®?
