Using Spackling Paste To Create Layering – Sausha’s Furniture Paint Technique

Using Spackling Paste To Create Layering - Sausha's Furniture Paint Technique

I started playing around with a metal putty knife and some paint to start adding layers of paint to the dresser. But, that didn’t work out. The paint was just too thin and didn’t really go anywhere, because the dresser was so textured, the paint just sat in a glob and just kinda smeared.

After trying that for a bit, I decided that my paint needed a little substance if this idea was going to work. So I took spackling paste and mixed it with some paint (about 4 parts paste to 1 part paint) – just mix it really good until the paste is the same color as your paint and there are no more lumps. I found the best method to trowel on the paint was a cheap plastic putty knife that had some give in it.

My original plan was to paint it with blues and grays but when I started to sand it I quickly found out that it just wasn’t going to happen. Whatever the top coat of white paint that was on this piece was not coming off easily. I applied stripper to help remove the white and underneath the white was an red/orange color of paint.

When I worked on the top piece it had a yellow paint under the white. I liked the old look that the stripping and sanding gave it so I decided to just go with the colors that were already there. So I added a coat of Min-Wax Provincial stain to the painted areas wiping off after about 5 minutes.
