I’ve been drooling over Duck Egg Blue since I first heard mention of the famed chalk paint. When the Honeybee (a west side must-shop) started carrying the line, I literally bee-lined to the shoppe to make it mine.
And, just three months later, I finally put brush to paint. One of the fantastic features of the chalk paint is that no sanding or priming is required. So, I taped off the mirror and set to it. I didn’t really know what I was doing so I started slow. I basically dry brushed the color on and then (just by happenstance) used a baby wipe to dab off where I wanted the previous finish to show through.
I let it dry overnight and then went back and gave it a clear wax. I really worked the wax into the mirror, and then pressed it down and wiped it off with one of the PCP’s socks. That night I went back over it and buffed it with the sock to a flattering light luster. Waiting time aside, painting the mirror was a snap. I’d say it took only about thirty minutes of actual work.
