The “Before” Velvet Chair:
Normally, I would advise against painting velvet materials using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This is because it is usually a project that requires too much paint. This time, however, I wanted to get the effect of an old, worn leather chair. I sprayed water onto the pink velvet and then added an application of a watered- down Arles Chalk Paint. After the Arles was dry, I worked Primer Red Chalk Paint into the material. I was careful not to cover the entire chair. Happy with its coverage, I let the chair dry overnight. I applied the stenciling next and sanded it
Items Used for This Project: 1 Sample Pot of Arles, 1 Sample Pot of Primer Red Chalk Paint, White Wax Clear and Dark Wax, and 240 Grit Sandpaper.
