My latest project was painted with homemade chalk paint then coated with a glaze that was tinted with black. I've seen this technique used by very talented people and I wanted to try it on a piece with lots of detail work in the wood. The piece sold in about 2 hours which didn't give me enough time to get better shots.
I can't help but want to try something new on each piece. Although this one had great detail and could stand on its own, I couldn't resist so I added black. Although the texture is fun, I realized that this piece needed to be left alone.
Alchemy Fine Living has very helpful video tutorials. I learned this technique from her. Check out this post on tinted glazes at Alchemy Fine Living.
Another great example of this technique was done by Facelife Furniture.
