Paint Your Piece With Luxe Grey One Step Paint
Mix Up Your Cracked Gesso
Mix Your Milk Paints
Amy mixed 2 parts Amalfi Coast and 1 part Noir Milk Paint. Add your water - 1 part water and 1 part Milk Paint. Do not make this too thick! Continue agitating the paint and mixing as you are painting.
Paint With Your Milk Paint
Cover the entire piece with your Milk Paint mixture.
Apply your Antiquing Glaze with a sea sponge to your piece. Let it dry completely!
Time To Gild
Use Frankly Scarlet One Step Paint and roll it on to your piece with an artist brush to add detail. Then take your Gilding Size and dip your brush in, offload, and roll it on to your piece. Let your size come to tack. Lay your gold leaf down and burnish it. The more you burnish it the prettier your leaf will be! Burnish it by rubbing it with your hands. Take a chip brush and rub off the gold leaf. Take some steel wool to your piece to blend everything together.
Let your piece dry completely. Apply your Light Wax, Dark Wax, and Dust of Ages.
Enjoy The Bragging Rights!
