The second project from Painter in Residence Agnieszka Krawczyk. Agnieszka has used Florence and Graphite – two very strong, rich colours from the Chalk Paint® palette. They work beautifully with the golden wood of the cupboard.
If you haven’t yet tried using Chalk Paint® to colour fabric, do. It’s simple and really straightforward – you just need cold water and Paint – no fixatives or salt, no faffing around. We wanted to show our support for Breast Cancer Awareness, here at HQ, and I realised that this would be a great opportunity to ‘dye’ our own t-shirts with my paint, Chalk Paint®

Painter in Residence, Beau Ford, painted this child sized wardrobe in Chalk Paint®. She mixed Barcelona Orange with Pure to create this peachy-orange colour and stamped white spots on to the surface. The inside has been painted in its complimentary colour, Provence.
In her final project as Painter in Residence, Agnieszka Krawczyk chose soft pastels from the Chalk Paint® palette to create a delicate and romantic vintage look. Working with Antoinette, Paris Grey, French Linen and Old White, Agnieszka applied the paint in layers then chipped and sanded the paint back to create a natural worn finish.
