Layered Patina Painted Hutch

I am really excited to show you another layered technique I have done. This time I used 7 different paint colors. I paint furniture like I paint canvas. One of the things I like to do when I paint, is study my subject. So I decided to start studying patinas.

I have started a Patina Pinterest board. From texture to colors and chippiness will get pinned there. 

I used the same technique for the layered patina painted hutch as I did for my french end tables. The difference is the amount of colors and type of paint. I used Annie Sloan for the end tables and my new paint Country Chic for this hutch.

I started with my signature color paint Dreamingincolor. That is the base color that start the layered patina painted hutch.

One of the things I learned studying patinas is the different strokes of color. The directions, rust and wood grain have a lot to do with the look.  It is hard to make something that occurs naturally look like the real thing when using paint. That is why I continue to practice this technique.
Always learning!!

I also play with waxes. I use clear and dark. I only use the dark in certain areas. 

I create pieces like this so I can have something different in my store.
This hutch is the centerpiece for my Oz inspired showroom.

I have decorated for fall in a Wizard of Oz theme.
