Video and DIY project with Dixie Belle Paint

Happy Sunday Folks!

I hope you enjoy seeing project tips with Dixie Belle Paint products and an AWESOME DIY item.

First up is some video from Suzanne at Dixie Belle....




Now add glaze....



Just so happens these are chair videos and I have another DIY chair I made to share today.   I really embellished and added hand painted accents along with bead trim, glass knobs, and wood appliques.   Go a little crazy!

The wood appliques were added first on front and back. Front on the stile, back on the top rail.    A base coat of cream paint was then painted over with pink and aged with glaze.   Sanding was done to create aging too.  Clear Coat was applied to seal it all except the knobs and beads.



Glass knobs are used to accent stiles



Seat decoupaged, hand painted, dusted with glitter and clear coated


Bead Trim was hot glued to the back side of the apron 
under the seat. 

Above is a graphic of the parts of a chair, by name, for your information

Dixie Belle makes DIY and painting so very easy!     This weekend only (July 23 and 24th) we will have a drawing for the fabulous Dixie Belle Gift Set.    Place an order of 25.00 or more and get in the drawing!    Paint (neutral), glaze, brush and sponge sander with a fab bag to keep it in.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
