DecoArt DT Tutorial - Chalky Finish Decor Project

Happy monday dear crafty friends (:o)

Finally i received some DecoArt Chalky Finish Products last friday and i finished a few projects the last weekend. Today i want to share some painted glass bottles with you.

The DecoArt products i used

DecoArt Americana Fabric Stiffener, Americana Decor Chalky Finish *whisper*, *delicate*, *refreshing* and Americana Decor Light Satin Varnish

First i've cleaned the bottles....

...and cut some old lace to fit around the bottles

Soak the lace with the Fabric Stiffener....

..and apply to the bottles. I used a brush and stippled the Fabric Stiffener....

...on top of the lace and on the bottles, too
Let dry completely

The Fabric Stiffener.... creating the crackle effect, when the paint dries.
Seal the bottles with Light Satin Varnish

I found a wire basket and painted it, too

Less is more. I painted the basket with less paint three times. I started with *whisper* and used some *refreshing* at the edges

The new decoration on my dining table

Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments
Happy crafting (:o)

Elly... I love your DecoArt project! Your three vases all painted and crackled and shabbied up look fantastic! I absolutely LOVE DecoArt paints... My new favorites... The chalky paints, crackle and waxes. Your project is so cute! Perfect for a homespun feel on your dining table. I thank you from the bottom from my heart for your super sweet comment about my art. You make me feel so good with your ultra positive comments. Love you and love your art! <3 Candy
