Transforming picture frames

 

When we stand in a shop, we imagine how a frame would look on the wall, we start seeing so many creative ideas. By painting them we are able to change them with every season.

Before we paint, we have to make sure what we would like to create, a smooth solid colour or something different. Lay out your paint sheets and let’s get creating….

Painting a solid colour frame

What we need:

Panache multi purpose primer

Panache water based Polyglo (your selected Colour)

38mm Brush (depending on frame size)

Scotch-bride pad

Sugar soap

Mutton cloth

Remember to remove the glass and screws before you paint. Start with cleaning the frame with some sugar soap mixture and a scotch-bride pad, wipe afterwards with clean water and mutton cloth. Apply one coat Panache multi purpose primer. Leave to dry for 24 hours. When dry apply two coats Panache water based Polyglo.

Painting two colours

What we need

Panache multi purpose primer

Panache water based Polyglo (two different colours)

Vaseline

Sugar soap

Scotch-bride pad

Brush

Mutton cloth

This process is where you can be creative. Again start with cleaning the frame with some sugar soap and scotch-bride pad, wipe afterwards with clean water and mutton cloth. Apply one coat Panache multi purpose primer. Leave to dry for 24 hours. When dry apply one coat Panache water based Polyglo. Leave to dry and apply Vaseline to only parts of the frame with an art brush.  Apply second colour Panache Polyglo to the frame. Leave to dry, use scotch-bride pad to remove Vaseline. This will give you two colours on the frame; you can also use more than two colours, this is all about how creative you want to be.

 

Happy Painting!
