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.

Moreover, for this project, we will be using chalk based paint, glitter, glaze and wax.

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!

You can also see the video I made for this project.
