Painting wooden bird houses with chalk based paint
Painting wooden bird houses
I am very excited to present you a beautiful Christmas project. Today I decided to paint wooden bird houses. You can get these bird houses in all craft stores. So I’ll be using Colorantic products, especially their quality Colorantic chalk based paint.
Step 1 – Apply color
Colorantic chalk based paint has primer inside which allows us to apply a single coat of paint.
Step 2 – Apply the glitter
To do this, you have to mix the glitter and the glaze for a proportion of 1: 1. Once mixed, we apply the mixture with a precision brush over the colour you applied previously.
The glaze will become transparent when dry, you will only see the colour and the glitter!
Step 3 – We wax!
When the glitter is dry you take a small amount of wax with the wax brush. We start with the natural bee wax and continue with the snow-white wax and finish with black coal to add a nice, slightly worn effect.
Hope you will have fun with this wood bird house painting project. Have a happy holiday and we’ll meet up for a new project very soon!
