Frottaged bureau

Annie painted this bureau using both frottage and stencilling. The body of the desk was first painted in Chalk Paint® in Olive. Annie then painted over this with Greek Blue diluted with water. Working in sections, she pressed crumpled newspaper over the still-wet blue paint and rubbed it down before peeling it back. The result was a randomly textured surface showing both colours to a greater or lesser extent.

For the fronts of the drawers, Annie applied her 'Trees' Stencil using a number of Chalk Paint® colours to bring the scene to life.
