Create a Primitive Effect on Furniture in 3 Steps

11 Apr

Good Morning! Welcome to the quickest class on a painting technique you’ve ever taken!

You’re in Painting with Goopy Paint 101.

If you want to turn any piece of furniture into a primitive piece, you’re in the right spot.

Creating a primitive look is done with the correct color (early Americans were not using neon yellow) and an aging effect.

To Get a Primitive Distressed Look

  1. Paint your GOOPY PAINT on your chosen surface and just goop it up! Let it dry Goopy. (2-4 hours)

3. Sand gently to reveal the high point of the GOOPY PAINT.

4. (Optional) Wax (if desired) with Schrack’s Cream Wax either Dark Brown or Clear. Or Antique with Old Village Brown or Black Antiquing Liquid.  For a more polished look you can finish with one of our Graining and Glazing Liquids.

So, after just three steps, you can end up with a perfect primitive piece. Ta-da!

I have lived a long time and am convinced that God governs in the affairs of men. If a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? I move that prayer imploring the assistance of Heaven be held every morning before we proceed to business.- Benjamin Franklin
