First Crush – Colour of the week

First Crush – Colour of the week




What can I say, its Valentines Day this week, so it was kind of a no-brainer that I should choose First Crush as the colour of the week!

First Crush is the softest pastel shade of pink, perfectly girly and so sweet.


On Valentines Day, I had so much fun, painting with a friend, on their front deck with the sea breezes to keep us cool. 

First up, I painted the sweetest love heart garden ornament. Only 2 coats, a light sand to distress, clear wax to seal and then I used my favourite black wax to add depth and definition to those gorgeous roses. I then wiped the excess black wax away with more clear wax and buffed it all over.



Next were a pair of candlesticks. These took 3 coats. And as is typical with milk paint, one cadlestick achieved some authentic looking chippiness, the other not so much. I gave them a light sand and sealed them with only the clear wax this time.
