DIY Chalk Painting with Dark Wax
I showed many from my Instagram this new mirror I was creating. Many fell in love, as I did. You’ll want to grab a couple of your favorite chalk paint colors. I chose Fluff and Apricot by Dixie Belle. I will include links below to see the products I use. You can do this dark wax for an antiquing look, there are many great chalk paint ideas!
Begin painting the detailed areas with Fluff. Next, paint the flat areas with your other color. Most likely you will get paint on the white detailed areas. Once both colors are dry just carefully go over the white again to be sure no pink is on the detailed areas.
When everything’s dry, get your clear wax and go over all the areas. You can use a rag, but I use a paint brush so I can get wax in all the details. Clear wax helps to evenly distribute the dark wax that will be going on next. Chalk painting tutorials are a great way to learn the trick of chalk painting. I have many painting tips on my blog!
I then get the dark wax and also rub that over all the areas. I especially get in the details. Lastly, to give your mirror some more depth, rub clear wax over all the detailed areas again. I also have may mirrors available in my shop.
