The good old clay or stone bowl became boring a long time ago, but it is still too nice to be thrown out. Turn it into a trendy object! The vintage look is full on trend and with Marabu Chalky-Chic chalk paints and the drying technique it is really easy to achieve. The trendy pastel shades and the surface with a brushed appearance give the simple object a unique, antique charm.
The drying technique is suitable for all smooth or textured surfaces. Smooth surfaces appear as if they were brushed while textured surfaces gain an almost tangible depth.
How it is done:
Prepare the surface of the bowl so it is free from grease and dust. Evenly apply the first shade to the surface with a brush or roller and leave to dry thoroughly.
Apply the second shade with a dry bristle brush and wipe it off until there is virtually no paint left on the brush. Now use the brush to gently go over the areas to be highlighted. Leave to dry.
Tip: Use two contrasting colours to highlight the texture effect even more. Tone-on-tone shades create a subtle, harmonious effect.
