Chalky Paint on Resin?

Chalky Pumpkins

We have been thinking of all sorts of ways to use the DecoArt Chalky Finish Paint.  I decided to try it out on our Resin Swirled Pumpkins.

Sandra Malone did a great job designing animal print for the pumpkins, but I’m not an animal print lover so I wanted something a little more tame (you see what I did there?)

So I thought I would try out our new Chalky Paint for the occasion.  I loved how it painted leaving a really smooth finish.  The orange painted in one coat, but I did have to use two coats of paint for the green.  I then used the dark Creme Wax and that just brought out all the beautiful wood-grain texture on the pumpkins.

Brush on and then with a damp cloth wipe away any excess. After the wax was dry, I simply took a soft cloth and polished up the wax a bit to make it shine.  If you wanted to keep the matte finish, simply don’t polish the wax.  I wish you could all feel the finish, it is wonderful and there is no need to do another sealer, the was does all that for you.  It is simply my new favorite way to antique a project now.

I hope you will give Chalky Paint a try on your next Resin project.  It’s not just for wood furniture!
