Wash Technique

With this colour wash technique you will go a long way in regards to coverage. In my first demonstration I used Cregan White as my base coat, and washed it with Margate. In my second demonstration, I used Margate as my base, and Cregan as the wash. You will need: Kalkie Craft Chalk Paint, 2 different Colours A paintbrush Bucket of water Small container to hold wash (plastic cup) Cloth You can use the lighter or darker paint as your base coat. In the photos I will demonstrate the outcome of both. Paint the desired piece with the colour of your choice. In the first pictures, I used Cregan White as my base coat. Pour the second colour you want to use as the wash, in a cup 1/2 way, and add water to it, spoon by spoon, until you are satisfied with the texture. When your base coat is completely dry, paint over it with the wash. In a straight line, gently wipe down the wash paint with your cloth, using a clean side, everytime you wipe it. This will remove some of the wash paint, and create a beautiful effect. Let it dry completely. Seal with Kalkie Craft Clear Sealer to protect, and bring out the colour of your masterpiece. You can paint the sealer on using a brush or sponge roller. Sealer instructions on page.
