When painting for a vintage feel, no need for uniform straight brush strokes, I wanted this piece to look like it has been painted numerous times.
Make your own stencil
Found this vintage OJ bottle cap image online, and created a reverse stencil with my Silhouette Cameo.
Rough It Up
The lines were just to crisp and neat for that vintage feel, simple fix – use a little sanding sponge and soften it up a bit.
Recreate A Vintage Vibe
With the piece I wanted to recreate that vintage Florida Kitsch by accentuating all the flaws.
Dark Wax Is Your Friend
Dark Wax really brings out all your brush strokes, dings and battle scars. Don’t be afraid to layer it on, you can always pull some back off with a soft rag and some clear wax.
Let those scars shine
I love adding dark wax for recreating a vintage feel. It brings the imperfections to the forefront where they can really shine
