Hello friends...I'm back and still playing with paint.
I watched Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette again the other day.
I love that movie...
and then there is
What a stunningly beautiful Palace
It put me in a very French mood
Remember the wood tray I painted last week and I told you I had two of them.
This is the smaller of the two.
Well I decided to 'Frenchify' (is that a word?) the 2nd larger one.
I had my brand new preview can of Annie Sloan
Oh my what a gorgeous color!
I like to refer to it as..
"A pink for us grown up gals".
Are you ready for Annie's newest color???
Hello Mademoiselle Antoinette!
I know...the police are at the door
because it is a crime to be this beautiful!!!!
I trimmed the tray in Coco
which is the perfect compliment to this stunning pink.
To achieve an antique look, I crackled the ASCP
(no crackle medium needed)
and finished with clear and dark wax.
I applied extra dark wax in the cracked areas.
To get the crackled look..lay, don't brush, the paint on thickly using the flat side of your
Then hit it with your blow dryer on high.
Watch the magic happen.
Try that with latex...I don't think so.
I love this look...instant age.
I would proudly serve little cakes and pastries
to Marie with this tray.
I think she would approve
