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!
