You will need:
•100mm-125mm paintbrushes (2)
•Container for mixing glaze
•Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Orchid White and Resene Putty
•Resene Paint Effects Medium
•Soft cotton cloth
Apply two coats of the base colour Resene Orchid White and allow to thoroughly dry.
If you wish to use a textured basecoat replace the second coat of the base colour with a coat of the desired textured finish tinted to the base colour.
Mix an effects finish of:
3 parts Resene Paint Effects Medium
1 part Resene Putty
1 part water
Dip about 10mm of the brush into the effects finish, tap the brush on the side of the container to remove the excess and place a few dabs of colour about 40-50cm apart over the basecoat. Moving the brush quickly in all directions, blend the colours.
Use a dry brush to soften and blur the edges. A cotton cloth may be used to dab off heavier areas of effects finish and to help soften or remove brushstrokes.
When the first coat has dried thoroughly, you may apply a second coat to strengthen the colour or use another shade of the same colour to add interest and depth.
You can vary the proportion of paint to Paint Effects Medium - the more
medium added, the more translucent and subtle the finish will be.
Leave some of the basecoat unbrushed or cover very lightly so that there is a variation of colour between the basecoat and the effects finish coat.
Before you start your project try out different combinations and practice your application method on a piece of card until you are happy with the result.
