Painters Gunna Paint

As stated in an earlier blog post, I purchased CeCe Caldwell’s paint in the colour Duck Blue.

My plan remains the same… to paint the frame of the bench Duck Blue, and glaze it smoky quartz.

Because I was using the CeCe Caldwell’s paint, I referred to their website. I was pleasantly surprised with all of the references they provide their consumers. I was especially impressed with their “How To Use” and “Blog” section.

After perusing their blog looking for inspiration, I followed their “How To Use” page before beginning my painting journey.

I followed their steps carefully, and very quickly came to realize that it would have been easier to paint the boards before putting the bench together.

I did the first coat with the bench upright, and it was very difficult. There was a lot of awkward poses, and bending involved. I had to have a very steady hand, and not get any paint on the other boards so I wouldn’t ruin them.

One coat was not enough, and it was far too transparent for my liking, so I needed to do a second coat.

I waited one day for the paint to dry before beginning my second coat. this time, I turned the bench upside down, and it was much easier to paint!

After two coats, I was very happy with the colour! I definitely recommend two coats when using this brand of paint.
