Annie Sloan - Painters in Residence: Colour-Washed Platters...


Our latest Painters in Residence project for Annie Sloan is now live, and up on her blog...

We really enjoyed this one - especially the styling and photographing stage of the project - and we loved coming up with an unusual and inventive take on how to use Annie's famous Chalk Paint. As Annie's Painters in Residence, we were tasked with doing something interesting and new with the paint, and we thought creating a transparent glaze of colour, that you could apply to ceramics, was certainly a new spin!

We created these lovely platters with air-drying Das clay, and rolled some of our Irish linen fabric in to them, while wet, to imprint them with texture. This gave us lovely texture to rub the wax glazes into, and I love how painterly and soft the colour washes came out... it was exactly as I had envisioned. 

The How-To for this project is actually in this month's Reloved Magazine, as well as up on Annie's blog - which you can read, here...
