Karen Largent invited SharSum Paint to present at today’s January Rotary meeting to introduce our new company and the paint we are selling, explain chalk-based paint and share ideas for painting with it. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and hope everyone left with a little more knowledge of chalk-based paint and maybe left thinking of projects they could paint. You can view our Google presentation here.
We explained how you could paint and distress a metal flower pot and pointed out the right half of the pot is waxed and has a slight sheen to it. The other half shows the chalk-like matte finish without wax. Passing this piece around the group gave them a hands-on look at the finish once waxed and they could see how the wax deepens the color and enhances texture.
We also discussed repurposing thrift store finds. We created a hanging photo holder (Capture Memories in Time) and brought this piece to show.
