Blue Sea Trunk

by Agnieszka Krawczyk

Painter in Residence Agnieszka Krawczyk used Chalk Paint® and her signature layering technique on this old wooden sea trunk.

Blue Sea Trunk by Annie Sloan Painter in Residence Agnieszka Krawczyk painted with Chalk Paint® in Provence and other blue hues

Agnieszka used a Chalk Paint® Brush to paint thick, textured layers of Chalk Paint® in Provence, Duck Egg Blue, Greek Blue, Louis Blue, Original, Old White and Pure on the outside of the chest. She applied some of the colours directly from the tin, and mixed others together to create lighter shades. Then she used a scraper, putty knife and sandpaper to chip and scrape away at the painted surface. Agnieska always distresses her paint work manually, and never uses an electric sander – this gives her a lot more control and creates a less uniform finish.

Agnieszka painted the inside of the chest in Provence, and then finished the piece with Clear Chalk Paint® Wax.
