I have a small collection of tabletop dress forms.
I had a couple that were different colours & didn't
really go with the rest of the forms.
So.... I repainted them.
Unfortunately, I did not take a before picture.
The small one had a dark reddish brown base that I repainted with
Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Flow Blue.
I painted directly on the shiny surface without the bonding agent
because I wanted a very chippy look with the base colour
showing in spots. Then I sealed it with the clear tough topcoat
because I wanted a shiny finish & to stop the paint
from any further chipping. (far right)
The second one was a pretty shaped metal one but it was
a goldish yellow colour. I used Annie Sloan chalk paint
in Paris Grey, to cover the whole thing.
Then distressed it & waxed it.
Now the colours blend better with the rest of the forms. : )
