Duck Egg

You know what I'm referring to....chalk paint. Well, I held out and didn't buy any. Yes, it was killing me. Instead I waited patiently for Christmas. And what do you know, I received the three that were on my wish list....DE, Old White and Paris Gray. Guess someones been behaving :) I used the OW first and I'll tell ya, wasn't happy with it. It went on very thick and left tons of brush marks.Then I tried the Duck Egg and oh, I love it. I especially love no sanding and priming. This went on smooth and creamy. So what's up with the OW???

Here are my tester projects...
Set of candlesticks which happily sold in a day in my Etsy shop. Maybe Annie is on to something :)
Someone needs new photo props.
Happy flea market find.

And the sea shell props one more time just in case ya missed 'em in the last two pics.

I love this one!!!
I just started a vanity/writing desk in Paris Gray. That one is going on nice too. Maybe I got a bad batch of OW or maybe I should add some water...thoughts???

Linking up here...

"Someone needs some new photo props" made ma laugh out loud :) Been there. Anyways, I have old white and it is definitely thicker than the other colors. I just finished painting a chair with it this morning actually! If it left brush strokes try just lightly sanding and that should help. Especially if it went on real thick. I haven't tried watering it down so I can't really help there, but I would think that would work.....?

The old white does go own slightly thicker. I don't know why. I use a foam brush with it to help eliminate the brush strokes.

I've been having massive issues with Old White. Its chipped and cracked. It thicker and leaves brush marks. The other colors I have haven't done that at all. I'm seriously displeased with Old White.

Love the props though!
