A few words on the patina you like ...

I like patinas a little thick that tell the story of a piece of furniture that has lived. They are made of light colors: linen or light gray and slightly aged thanks to a sanding on the edges of the wood where the wear of time could have hit ...

The patinas on furniture make it possible to revamp a furniture of grandmother sad and dark, a second life in some way!

Technical tips for Internet users?

To make pretty patinas, first of all do not be afraid to work in thickness.
Work from any white acrylic paint purchased in supermarkets. Realize your color with liquid pigments that you gently add until you get the right color and add a powder coat to thicken your base. Apply your mixture leaving some "lumps" in place and allow to dry for 8 hours.
The next day, sand your furniture by emphasizing the parts that time could have used: the outline of the handles, the edges, the feet ... To complete your work, you can apply a glaze made from a darker acrylic paint in you add 2/3 water or a wood wax (dark oak for example) that you melt slightly. This finishing touch enhances the old look of your furniture!

Some aesthetic tips?

We have a tip that makes our patina more beautiful: we work from acrylic paint with ash wood chimney. Sanding this patina after application and drying, the wood reveals some "lumps" and gives the illusion of time spent. Is not this the expected result?
