Different techniques and paints are used to rejuvenate pieces. I use a range of paint types, and brands using what I think will be most complementary to the individual piece. The finishes range from wax, shellac, paint and oils, the finish used will be described in each piece for sale.
When I paint furniture, I do my best to allow the wood grain to still be evident, this allows the paint to be an enhancing feature. On some pieces I will use a combination of paint and leaving the natural wood exposed when I do this I take time to choose a colour which enhances the natural tone and hue of the wood.
