On my first painted chair, I used two thin latex layers of paint and one layer of acrylic paint. Then, on my second chair, I only used thinned out acrylic paint. What if you used only latex paint?
Well, a reader tried just that.
And, believe it or not, here is how it started out! Yes, she painted right over all of that pattern.
This is just with a couple of latex layers. It doesn’t seem to matter if you do latex or acrylic, as long as they are thin layers and you slowly gain saturation that way.
Look at the detail! That had to have taken some time.
Thanks for sharing, Minda! If you have painted a chair, I’d love to see it!
