I love DecoArt’s new Americana Decor Chalky paint, but I wondered how it would work on resin…well, I love it on resin! I decided to give our resin Turkey a simple look and chose to basecoat the entire piece first in the color Timeless…and I was surprised that it actually covered the resin in one coat, which was great. Once dry, I did use DecoArt Americana Acrylics to add washes of color to the tail, wings, and head. When all of this was dry I added a coat of spray varnish and then antiqued it with DecoArt’s Antiquing and Staining Medium. I love how he turned out, and I will definitely use the chalky paint again on resin.
