Finger Painting With Gilding Wax…it’s bringing back memories!

The Whistling Elk, Chester NJ

I always had so much fun Finger Painting when I was a kid and now I get to do it again…

with The Couture Collection – they have a great selection of Gilding Waxes which I love to use to accent a painted finish – any painted finish…even one I didn’t paint!  (heehee)

This cute frame was pretty before I started but now I like it even better.  It had an all over copper look and now it has touches of green moire and the gold lame that I finger-painted on which gave the original finish a lot more depth.

Gilding Wax adds depth to a finish

That is the beauty of the Paint Couture line…you can paint something one color, OR paint and glaze, OR paint, glaze and gild for a finish that has deep, layered and elegant dimension!

We will be happy to teach you all of these techniques at our Paint Workshops!

Call for the date of the next scheduled Class and make a reservation to attend.  You will have so much fun!  I guarantee you will leave class contemplating all the objects around the house that you will be painting or glazing or gilding or maybe all three!

To enhance a painted finish you simply apply the gilding wax with your finger or with a small artist brush! and voila the perfect way to accent your finished paint project!  If you decide to finger paint – a little coconut oil will clean up your talented fingers.
