Painting With Dixie Belle Paint On Furniture
Let’s make over a armoire!
1
This is a shiny wood surface. Slick Stick helps your paint grip to shiny or plastic surfaces. Since I don’t want to sand, this is how I prepare.
2
Add two coats of Slick Stick to the armoire, waiting two hours between coats. Waiting 24 hours before paint.
3
Let’s paint a ombré effect.
4
Start at the base with the darkest color. Keep a separate brush for each color and a spray misting bottle to help dampen your brush. Blend.
5
Continue up the armoire from dark to light.
6
Blending on the second coat of paint.
7
This is two coats blended.
8
Let’s add WoodUBend to the project. I painted them in Gemstone Mousse to begin. When dry I will apply the WoodUBend to the armoire.
9
Let’s add some Best Dang Wax in Brown.
10
I also added Brown Wax to the mouldings.
11
WoodUBend is applied by heating the back. Using wood glue to adhere. Then heat again to ensure they are flat to the surface.
12
As soon as the mouldings are on you can paint or stain them. They are also bendable to curve around a surface.
13
Golden Gem for all the trim and edges.
14
Belle’s & Whistles transfer called Magnolia Garden Transfer! Four sheets inside!
15
Let’s add a transfer!
16
Each image is burnished down using the enclosed tool. You can cut up your transfer to create a one of a kind look!
17
Stunning makeover!
