Malachite-Effect Table Top

Malachite-Effect Table Top

This malachite effect table is featured as one of the step-by-steps from Issue 3 of Annie’s Bookazine, The Colourist. In order to create this effect, Annie used Chalk Paint® in Florence, Old White and Amsterdam Green.

Annie mixed Chalk Paint® in Old White with Florence and applied as a base, then sanded using a Fine Grade Sanding Pad before applying Gloss Chalk Paint® Lacquer to give an extremely smooth finish. Working in sections, Annie brushed a mix of Amsterdam Green and Lacquer over her base then dragged a stiff piece of corrugated cardboard through this layer in semi circles. Mixing Chalk Paint® with the Lacquer here is essential; the paint on its own won't hold the pattern created by the cardboard. Using the end of a paint brush, Annie emphasised some of the wiggly lines created by the cardboard for a more organic effect.

Once dry, Annie then sanded with a Medium Grade Sanding Pad and applied two coats of Chalk Paint® Lacquer with a Large Sponge Roller for an authentic high-sheen finish. For more detailed instructions, pick up a copy of The Colourist Issue 3.
