Fired Earth Chalk Paint works on fabric too, even upholstery. Here’s how to do it.
- 38mm paintbrush
- Lint-free cloth
- 1ℓ Fired Earth Chalk Paint in the colour of your choice
Paint the entire chair, fabric and wood, with two coats of chalk paint, letting it dry between coats. To shake things up a little we didn’t paint all the chairs the same colour. We used Gaulois Grey for some chairs and Larva for others.
Top Tip: Some fabrics will be easier to paint than others. Velvet for instance requires three to four thick coats, while other fabrics may only require two.
Once the paint has dried, seal it with a thin layer of soft clear wax. Apply a second thin coat of wax then wait eight to 12 hours before buffing to a soft sheen. Clear wax changes the colour of chalk paint slightly, giving it a deeper, more lustrous appearance.
