A CHATEAU LOOK FOR A PAIR OF SUPER TALL CANDLESTICKS

Here my very tall candlesticks with their original finish.  Really darling, aren’t they a little too brassy.

Here’s what you need.  Soft Gray primer, a couple of craft acrylic paints in lighter shades of gray and one in a darker gray than the primer.

I painted the candlesticks with the gray primer.  The gray I used was Ben. Moore Gullwing Grey.    When it was dry I brushed the two lighter shades of acrylic  craft paint here and there on the candlesticks.  I immediately rubbed the finish with ah of old tee-shirt .  Don’t worry about rubbing too much paint off, you can always repaint.  When you rub the lighter acrylic paint you remove the brush strokes and create the aged look.  To finish I took the darker grey acrylic craft paint and gently brushed the tips and edges of the design.  Voila !  Finished Darling!
