Annie’s Painters-in-Residence, shed eleven, used layers of paint and candle wax as a resist to create texture on this piece. They were inspired by batik printmaking.

Their first step was to apply a base coat of Chalk Paint® in Graphite, before applying melted candle wax in the outline of a leopard’s rosette spots, to areas which they wanted to stay Graphite. They then applied a second coat in Arles, adding more melted wax over the areas which should remain as Arles (the centre of the leopard spots). They then applied a third coat in Scandinavian Pink. Next, they softened the candle wax using a hair drier then lifted it off using a palette knife or an old credit card. Each layer of wax removed reveals a different colour paint! Finally, they protected their work with a coat of Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.

The scene is finished off with a quirky circus poster and measuring stick, both painted with Chalk Paint® in Amsterdam Green, Scandinavian Pink, Arles, Graphite and Old White.
