How to:
Stir Vintro Chalk Paint™ really well (it is thick) through to a creamy consistency. Using Fresco Vintro chalk paint for the rustic texture, you must load up your paint onto your surface liberally & thickly brushing in all directions, leave to air & half dry, and then disturb it as the paint is drying and pull it around to create even more texture. You will need to repeat this step  until you get a porridge like consistency. After you are happy with your texture leave to dry, it is important to lightly sand to remove any "loose" texture prior to sealing and decorating with wax.

Once dry cover the whole piece with dark wax using a soft wax brush and rub off the excess, do this in smaller sections until the whole top is completed.

Make up a custom black wax using a 50/50 mix of clear wax and Victorian black chalk paint, brush over the entire surface again as above and remove any excess, Voila ! Completed. The wax highlights the gorgeous texture and gives it added depth and dimension

This is part of our Vintro Project Series which aims to help you create these looks with ease.
