shabby chic
« on: March 30, 2015, 05:58:41 AM »
can anyone help me please  ;D I have cream woodwork in my house, skirtings and doors were white when I bought them, windowsills etc were the darker original wood, I painted all with cream gloss 3 years ago but I am now wanting to achieve the shabby chic affect, does anyone know how I could go about this please? I still want them to be cream overall, thanks  :)

welcome, i use an oil undercoater, then a flat, then stress the surface then use an oil wiping stain then i use a water base clear
I don't do this for a hobby and I'm damn sure I don't need the practice

thats a lame link...besides, shes using a glaze and does nothing to explain the stress part......what i mean is (for example)even the lightest circular motions with sand paper with show when you stain (like sanding cross grain on raw stainable wood) so there is alot more to it
