DRY PAINTING: DIY TEXTURED PAINT



I was recently working on a new little project around the house that included refinishing some vases and picture frames. With some research and experimenting for a very particular look, I LOVE how they turned out! I used a method I call Dry Painting! Dry Painting is when you add some baking powder to your paint which gives the objects you are painting, some texture! This technique completely accomplished the raw, natural, clay, concrete look I was going for! Adding a little bit of texture made a huge difference. This is a DIY game-changer! It was super easy and I had the supplies already on hand! Here's what you do:


SUPPLIES

Paint

Baking Powder

Bowl

Mixing utensil


OPTION ONE

  1. Round up the paint you will be using for your project.

  2. Pour paint into a mixing bowl.

  3. Slowly add baking powder to the paint and mix until it's a fluffy mousse-like consistency.

  4. Begin painting objects with mixture.


OPTION TWO

  1. Round up the paint you will be using for your project.

  2. Pour paint into a mixing bowl.

  3. Pour some baking powder onto a paper plate.

  4. Begin painting the object while alternating dipping the brush into the paint and the baking powder, creating your own texture.


That's it! This paint method is very forgiving. You do not have to paint perfectly, the imperfections complete the look! I love that you can control how wet/dry you make the paint with the baking powder. You can get slightly different looks depending on your mixture, so each of mine turned out a little bit differently.
