    What colors did you use for the blackish gray finished piece?

    • Sue says:

      We used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite as a base coat with a little Paris Grey dry-brushed to highlight the details. The wax we used was straight dark wax from Annie Sloan. The stencil was done with Royal Design Stencil Gel in Smoked Oyster. Thanks for asking!

    I love the bottom photo. What colours did you use for that?

    • Sue says:

      That is Emperor’s Silk and distressed very heavily. We applied dark wax without first applying the clear to give it that dark color.

    When you say you dry brushed on Paris Grey, what do you mean by that, what is “dry brushed?”
    Thanks, Dara

      Dry brushed simply means that you thin the paint a bit with water, dip your brush in it and then unload most of the paint on a piece of paper or drop cloth until you have just enough paint to brush on the surface very lightly. It results in a soft, translucent color that hightlights or gives the piece a little interest. You can see in the picture where it is cloudy – that is where the Paris Grey is dry brushed on the piece.
