Painting for a Rustic Distressed Finish

Annie demonstrates how to use two colours from the Chalk Paint® palette to create the basis for a heavily distressed rustic look.

  1. Choose two colours from the Chalk Paint® palette. Here Annie has selected Primer Red and Napoleonic Blue. Using a Chalk Paint® Brush, apply your primer colour roughly to create a textured finish.
  2. Once your base colour is dry, use a clean brush to apply the second colour. Leave areas of the base colour visible to create a distressed finish.
