Hello Crafty Friends!
This is Tanvi & it is such a pleasure to be back here with an inspirational post for the newest addition to the Little Birdie family - CHALK PAINTS!
Available in 14 shades, the consistency of these paints is perfect for use with either a brush, sponge or brayer. The matte finish gives a chalky appearance & is used for creating an aged, distressed or shabby look in projects. Can be used on glass, wood, ceramic, metal, walls & more. These paints are Made in India & being lead free are also eco-friendly.
Sharing a number of projects today, so sit back & enjoy!
I could not resist using the paints as soon as I received them & here is a quick project - a small wooden decorable decoupaged with rice paper & chalk paint (butternut squash) . My first attempt with chalk paints & I was in love with the coverage & matte finish - fantastic!
I had a metal tray, slightly worn out with use & this is how I salvaged it using chalk paints! For the background I used tattered lace and forest moss chalk paint & Mont Marte 3D gold for the edges. What a transformation! Do you agree?
The entire family of fourteen colours are so tempting, but I found Drift wood to be a captivating shade , it reminded me of a chocolatey cake! This led to my next project, a fridge magnet -
If you are a fan of chalk paint like me, you are going to love the "charcoal". The matt finish is by far the best I have ever seen! A ceramic pickle jar got such an elegant make over with minimal stencilling -
And finally I have a shabby frame. For this one I first gave a base coat of charcoal black, rubbed a candle randomly on the surface & painted over it with fortune cookie. Chalk paints are easy to distress because the paint can be easily removed just where you want it with a sanding sponge or sand paper. Once dry, sand it lightly to reveal the base coat & viola you get the best distressed & shabby look.
Now will believe this was a plastic frame!
I enjoyed playing around with the chalk paints & had to stop here, to publish this in time!
Thank you Rashmi love, love, love these paints & hoping we have some more shades and larger packs too!
