Did you know that you can transform any piece of furniture and give it an impressive VINTAGE look just by using a blend of CHALK PAINT MAKER and CHALK PAINT WAXER of POLYVINE which creates a striking grainy finish?

 

Simple Steps to Follow:

1.     Clean the surface form dust and dirt carefully.

2.     Wax remains can be removed with naptha .

3.     Use the CROWN GRIP EXTREME primer or CROWN MULTISURFACE PRIMER on metal and plastic surfaces. 

 

APPLICATION:

1.     Blend one part of CHALK PAINT MAKER and two parts of alatex paint (CROWN MATT EMULSION).

2.     Mix them up well until you create a completely homogeneous mixture.

3.     Apply in the same way as all latex paints.

4.     When the paint is dry, rub the surface lightly with a sandpaper to reveal some of the previous colour and have the desired finish.

5.     Remove any dust remains.

6.     Apply the CHALK PAINT WAXER Dead Flat wax for a smoother finish and protection of the surface.  For a more effective protection from water stains, we suggest using CHALK PAINT WAXER SATIN FINISH.

 

Important details:

-It is better to try these materials on a small surface before the final application.

-If you want to create a contrast between colours (antique style) then you should   paint the surface with a colour of your choice as a base first and then paint over the base with another colour with CHALK PAINT MAKER.

-You can also use paste wax (LIBERON BLACK BISON WAX) in dark shades for a more intense outcome.

-Wax must be applied with a lint-free cloth or a soft brush.

-For a more distressed style, apply a thicker layer of CHALK PAINT MAKER.

-While applying, remove any extra paint.

-You should always lightly sand the surface before another coating.

 

You should try this technique.  Good luck… The result will be definitely amazing!
