Alright, so, I've been getting emails about some of my older posts.  Questions regarding my painting techniques, etc.  I can't tell you how many questions I've been asked about this stand I painted nearly 6 years ago.

If you've been following me for awhile, you know that my painting is more of an artistic approach.  I rarely do things exactly the same way twice.  I experiment a lot.  I layer until I get the look I want, and on and on.  Such was the case with this stand.  I don't always use the same paint.  The base color was a grey primer, but, I don't recall what brand.  This was followed with layers of paint in various shades of white and grey.  I highlighted the details with white.

I've used this basic technique many times as a finish, and, as a starter before going nuts with more layers.  Although it focuses on gesso, you can use watered down paint for a similar look.  One thing I always suggest is that you practice on a scrap piece of wood before tackling a big project.

I'm also a FARRAGOZ affiliate.  A great course on creating weathered finishes, like these projects I had fun transforming.

You can also learn how to mix your own gesso.

DISCLAIMER:  I get a commission if you decide to take the FARRAGOZ course HERE.  However, I honestly think this is one of the best courses for learning aged painting techniques.

On another note, I've decided to continue my ETSY discount of 15% off on orders of $20 or more.  It may be a permanent thing.

I'm very grateful for everyone who supports my shop.  I'm continually adding new items.
