At long last, we had our first Cottage Paint class yesterday. There are lots of techniques to learn, and it's much better to practice in a class first, and then to graduate to painting your piece. Here are some of the practice boards from the class.
These are my first 2 projects, Purple Haze bottom coat on antique dresser, Asphalt grey as topcoat. Technique used 2 colour distressing, with a wax finish coat. Dining Room set was painted with Driftwood, technique used 1 colour distressing, finish coat is a zero-gloss acrylic varnish.
