It took hardly any time at all for me to really dislike the red and green combo. Seriously? The Christmas Jack? Ugh, but I lived with it for ages. Then I couldn't take it any more, plus I got a new shipment of Chalk Paint. So there I was, eyeballing my little Christmas chair with ASCP firmly in hand. Here's what I have now. Still a graphic, abstract Union Jack but much more fun (to me, anyway).
I used Graphite, Graphite with black pigment added, Paris Grey and Old White. I lightly sanded to reveal some red, topped with clear wax and a good buffing. I'm really happy with my little gray chair. Now, I have to decide if I'll list it on etsy.
And, of course, I'm looking at every stick of furniture, asking the silent question: Wanna be a Union Jack?
