Creating a Chippy Finish with Wise Owl Paint
I have been wanting to create a tutorial for y’all on how to create this look...here it is!
Here is how you would do it!
- Wise Owl Paint republic red, chocolate, copper and dark walnut glaze, vintage duck egg, bone, and antique villa. You can purchase this at www.acubedart.com
- Cling On O40
- Stencil- I used https://www.etsy.com/listing/101442960/plaster-stencil-acanthus-flourish-wall?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=Plaster+acunthus+stencil&ref=sr_gallery-1-2&organic_search_click=1&frs=1&cns=1
- Joint compound
- Wise Owl Paint Matte Varnish-can be bought at www.acubedart.com
Step 1: Apply a mix of chocolate and republic red with the Cling On O40 with a stumping affect-this is where you bounce the brush up and down. You will see the paint form peaks.
Step 2: Apply copper glaze using the same technique as step 1
Step 3: Apply Vaseline to areas where you do not want the paint to cover. This is the secret weapon for the chippy affect. I usually apply it around edges and corners of the legs to give it that aged look.
Step 4: Apply stencil as desired with joint compound. Let it dry
Step 5: Apply vintage duck egg, bone, and antique villa with the stumping techniques. Let the paint dry
Step 6: Wipe back the Vaseline
Step 7. Apply varnish all over the piece
Step 8: Apply dark walnut glaze and wipe back
Step 9: Apply final coat of varnish to seal the whole piece!
Let me know if you have any questions! Happy Painting!!!
