Color Wash – A Beautiful Effect on Wood!

Have you ever tried a color wash on wood? Our Missouri Limestone Paint Company chalk-style paint (https://sharsumpaint.com/paint-color-chart/) works perfectly for a beautiful color wash effect. This coffee table in the photo using “Indigo Blue” is an example of color wash. You can see a hint of navy blue but still see the beautiful grain of wood underneath.

It’s a fun technique to try. It’s kind of like staining, but using paint and water. Dries quickly, too!

Here’s a quick tutorial I just came across the does a great job of explaining color wash.
