Ombré-Kleiderschrank

von Ildiko Horvath

Painter in Residence Ildiko Horvath used her signature style of ombré to create this wardrobe, blending her favourite colours of green and blue.

Ildiko loves using blues and greens and this ombré wardrobe seamlessly blends together her favourite colours. To create this look, Ildiko used a water-filled spray bottle and a selection of blues and greens from the Annie Sloan palette.

First, she painted the whole piece in a mix of Duck Egg Blue and Louis Blue. Once dry, Ildiko dry brushed Graphite in to all the moldings and edges to create a sense of depth.

To create the ombré effect, she used a water-filled spray bottle to help with colour blending. Starting at the top she painted a band of Amsterdam Green, Pure and Greek Blue. Using a dry brush and water from the spray bottle she blended these three colours into a subtle ombre. Again using the spray, she below this she added another band of Greek Blue and one of Napoleonic Blue, blending them together and finishing with unmixed Napoleonic Blue at the bottom. A final all-over spray with the water bottle was used to create a smooth, seamless blend of colour.

The wardrobe was then finished off with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax all over and a little Dark and Black Wax at the bottom to intensify the colour.
