I felt it was time to have a go at using the DecoArt Chalky Finish paints. I was slightly nervous about it so I went onto a local social media site and looked for itemes that were free. I found a couple of bits someone was going to throw away if not collected, and that's where the fun started. This pic shows two of the finished items. Easy tutorial below with a picture of the products used. Go on, give it a try!
Once this was dry and I'd got a feel for the paint I painted the seat itself and the reverse of the sliding box lid as it was flat and I didn't want the brand name showing. I wanted to jazz it up a little AND to try out all the colours I had in the laziest way possible! And as most of the artists I know are a bit dotty that was the answer.
The polka dots were added with 3 foam stencil brushes (which come in packs of 12 and in 4 sizes).
Finally, once all the paint was dry I coated with the cream finishing wax and tadaaaa!
Love how cheerful these bits now look!
