Decorative Painting Techniques
I pply a creative touch to your wood project with decorative painting

techniques. Antique finishes, stencils, and color washes (next page)
give furniture and decorative items a rustic look. The following pages show
some in-depth projects for creating additonal aged finishes with paint. A
handful of specialty paintbrushes, some quality finishing materials, a few
helpful tools, and a little creativity are all you need to create these unique
painted finishes on your projects. With all of these techniques, it is best to
practice on scraps before applying to your project.

Antique Finish
Antique finishes re-create the look of
worn paint. Finish-sand and apply a base
coat of wood stain. If you use water-
based stain and water-based paint, the
stain may bleed through the paint. For
certain colors this may be a desirable
effect. To prevent bleed through, apply
a topcoat of satin finish polyurethane.
Allow the topcoat to dry and apply a
layer of water-based paint. To enhance
the illusion of age, apply a second coat
of paint in a different color. Once the
paint is dry, sand randomly chosen areas
with 1 ~O-grit sandpaper, varying the
sanding pressure (photo, left). Sand the
corners of the workpiece with 220-grit
sandpaper to complete this vintage

Stenciled Finish
Stenciled designs add a bright, decora-
tive touch to varnished or painted wood.
Purchase ready made stencils at a craft
store, or cut your own. Position the sten-
cil on the wood, and secure it with tape.
Stipple the wood by dabbing paint onto
the surface through the stencil , using a
stenciling brush (photo, left). Acrylic craft
paints are a good choice for stenciling, or
you can purchase special stenciling
paints. Allow the paint to dry before re-
moving the stencil. If more than one
color will be used, realign the stencil and
apply each color, one at a time, starting
with the lightest color. Allow the stenciled
area to dry completely and topcoat with a
clear finish for protection.

Color 1¥ash
Color washes produce a thin , semi-
transparent coat of paint on bare wood.
Dilute water-based paint by mixing one
part paint to four parts water (the more
diluted the paint mixture, the thinner the
paint layer will be). Brush the thinned
paint onto the wood, working with the
grain. Wipe the surface immediately with
a lint-free cloth , removing paint until you
achieve the desired color tone (photo,
left). Repeat the process to darken the
color, if needed. Soften the look by scuff-
ing the painted surface with a fine abra-
sive pad when dry.
