Graphite Chalk Paint® with Black Wax

Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan with Black Wax

Isn’t this handsome piece a show stopper?!

Sometimes you have to be patient and let a piece of furniture speak to you, for example…..like this vintage top hat dresser above!

Initially, we started out using Lem Lem Chalk Paint® on this piece.  And – with a little of Annie’s White Wax and even maybe an Iron Orchid Transfer in white – it could have been a show stopper too!    

But…after getting the Lem Lem on it…   I did not feel right!  This “handsome” piece had a maculine feel to it with its hefty wood posts on each side and just the way the burled wood on the drawers attracted me! 

Burled wood is special!  It is that swirly-grained wood that is often used on modern-styled pieces or as an inlay on vintage chests and dressers.

And the more I looked at it- it spoke out saying, “Please use Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan with Black Wax on me!”

So, we took it another direction.

MATERIALS USED ON THIS PROJECT:

Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan

Annie Sloan’s Black Wax

Annie’s SMALL dome top Paint Brush (this is my favorite!)

Annie’s SMALL Wax Brush (this is also our favorite wax brush!)

Scott Shop Towels (they are lint free and are hearty to remove the wax)

Odorless Mineral Spirits

Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan is a soft black – which I like to compare to a dark slate color or a vintage slate chalk board in an old school room! It is made with purplish blues, browns, and is not completely black. When waxed with Annie’s Dark Wax- the color becomes even more richer and warm. This is a popular color, especially when I am detailing a piece with vintage typography. I receive a lot of emails about this color. First- I want to clearly state again – Graphite Chalk Paint® is NOT black.

 

For this top hat dresser- I knew that I wanted it darker in color, so it was repainted using Graphite Chalk Paint®.

 

…..once we finished painting it – we decided to use  Annie Sloan’s Black Wax.  This photo belows shows the very top hat finished with Annie’s Black Wax but the lower portion with raw Chalk Paint®…meaning that is not waxed yet.  

Typically, at the shop we suggest to customers, to always apply a coat of clear wax before applying either black wax or dark wax (brown color)….this is especially important over light Chalk Paint® colors.  But since this is Graphite Chalk Paint® – we skipped the clear wax and went straight to the black.  

Here are the steps we took to paint this piece:

  1. We dampened a rag or a Scott Shop Towels with Odorless Mineral Spirits.
  2. We wiped down the areas of the dresser we planned on plainting.
  3. Took a rag moistened with fresh water and wiped down the whole piece.
  4. Once it was dry- we shook our quart of Graphite Chalk Paint® and shaked it  well, then opened and stirred it with a paint stick – making sure to scrape the bottom of the can.
  5. Using Annie’s SMALL dome top Paint Brush – paint the dresser applying the paint in the same direction as the wood grain.  Be sure to “lay” your paint on the final stroke.  (watch this VIDEO HERE if you do not understand what I mean by that)
  6. Once the first coat is thoroughly dry- (like within an hour)   Paint your second coat of Graphite Chalk Paint®.  
  7. Later that day or the next, feel free to apply Annie Sloan’s Black Wax using Annie’s SMALL Wax Brush (this is also our favorite wax brush!)
  8. I take a plastic spoon and using the back of it- I scoop some wax out of the tin and place on to a paper plate.   I have never dipped my wax brush right into my tin of wax.  It does not matter if I am using clear, white, black or dark wax.  I have always taken a scoop out and placed it on a paper plate and pulled from that wax with my brush.  I guess because if something was on my brush or if I got some light paint transfer – which can happen- it never would get into my tim by doing this.
  9. Once you have the Black Wax on the tips of the  Annie’s SMALL Wax Brush start to spread it all over the surface.  This is like skin moisturizer- you want a thin veil over all of the surface and you want gentle pressure so – it gets absorbed into the  Graphite Chalk Paint®.   
  10. Once- you have it all over your area- take a few sheets of your Scott Shop Towels  ….fold it into quarters and begin to wipe off the excess.  Thus, why we do not want to slather the wax on like we are icing a cake- because it will just go to waste now when we remove it.  
  11. Once I have lifted most of it off- Iusually take a clean Scott Shop Towels and wipe again gently in one direction.  just like we “laid our paint” – I feel this “lays” the wax.  You should be able to FLIP YOUR HAND OVER- and using the top of it….glide it on the surface.
  12. Now either move on to another area- OR leave it alone for an house!  Let the chemistry in the products have some time to set up.  Although “curing” takes a good 8 days –  after an hour or so….you can immediately begin to gently use your piece! 
  13. YES!  It is that easy!

Typography OPTIONS ………Graphite & French Linen Dresser

When it comes to adding typography to a piece, there are multiple ways to do it.

  1.  PROJECTOR METHOD:   Personally, I prefer using a projector.  That is how I created most of the pieces you will see done by me, like this Coco dresser.  I find this way the easiest since just by moving the projector closer or further away – I can manipulate the image to be bigger or smaller.  It is also easy for me to combine different elements from various images, just by swapping out the transparency.  Click HERE to read a post on “HOW TO” use a projector.

2. TRANSFER GEL METHOD: Or, some people prefer using a decoupage or transfer method.  I find that this may not always be 100% reliable and it takes some skill.  (well, I guess all methods take some skill, and I prefer option #1)  But again, many of our customers like to use a transfer medium as described in this post HERE.

And then, we have ………..

3. Super Chacopaper:  Then, there is Meryl Gartside’s way.  We were excited to see her “before & after” photos!  And we think this dresser that Meryl painted for her husband turned out beautiful!

MATERIALS USED:

Meryl wrote me:

About the dresser:

I did this piece to be used as my husband’s dresser in our newly remodeled bedroom. I chose the color Graphite because it seemed to be neutral and also a distinctly masculine color.

Graphite is a rich color – close to being a slate, or think …dark pencil lead. Depending on the orientation of the surface painted- it can appear darker or lighter. It does have depth and interest- and clearly plays wonderfully with other pieces painted in a true black.  But note that it is NOT a true black.

Here is the “BEFORE” picture of my Craigslist find:

Meryl Gartside BEFORE DRESSER The Purple Painted Lady Graphite chalk Paint

The Purple Painted Lady

After cleaning (it with Mineral Spirits and doing a clean water rinse) I then did a light sanding, and applied 2 coats of Graphite, slightly watering down the second coat because I was going for a smooth finish.

I did 2 coats of French Linen on the top, also adding a little water to the second coat for a smooth finish.

French Linen is an incredible color. To me it rivals a piece from Pottery Barn. It is a timeless & classic color. It has a bit of grey to it compared to a similar Chalk Paint® color, Coco. Coco is more brown.

I found the typography on The Graphics Fairy.

I enlarged the image to the size I wanted by making a Xerox copy at Staples. Then I found this amazing Super Chacopaper at Michaels which allowed me to trace (in white) an image onto a dark background.

Meryl Gartside Super Transfer Paper Michaels The Purple Painted Lady

Meryl thinks this Chacopaper is great stuff! It somewhat “sticks” to the surface as you trace, so there is no way it will shift around. The one drawback is that it will smudge onto the surface below if you lean on it while you are tracing. I discovered this (horrified) when I peeked under the tracing the first time to make sure it was transferring the image. To prevent further smudging, I slipped a piece of parchment paper under where I was leaning on the surface, and re-positioned it out of the way as I traced my image. (The smudge which I had inadvertently created, wiped off easily later with water.)

The Purple Painted Lady

At this point, I took a break, and didn’t work on the piece for about 3 weeks. I had psyched myself out to the point where I was very nervous about painting the typography. Much time had already been invested, and I was afraid to mess up at this point. 

Back at it 3 weeks later, I got up the courage to go over the typography with a fine point Sharpie Oil base paint pen. It wasn’t as difficult as I had feared, but I was ultra careful to avoid any blobs with the paint pen (my biggest fear) by dragging the pen tip on a sample board periodically (which had been painted in Graphite.) There were a few issues with the paint pen not flowing smoothly all the time, but I managed to avoid any major blobs on the actual drawer itself.

Once the typography was completed and dried, I waxed the dresser in a coat of Annie’s clear wax. I did some light distressing around a few edges, then gave everything a second coat of clear wax. I have read how dark wax makes graphite look even darker and richer and I had considered using it, but I was happy with the richness of the color just using the clear wax. Any white lines that were there from the chacopaper simply disappeared when I waxed it.

I used the original glass pulls for the drawers. Because they were over 100 years old they had gotten very cloudy. I soaked them in denture cleaner (a tip I discovered through research) and now they are bright and clear.

Meryl wrote us, I want to say that from what I have found, you are the very best resource for chalk painting supplies and information on the Internet. I live in an area where there are no workshops near me. ? So, last winter when I set out to explore the world of chalk painting, your website (and online store) helped me more than any other single resource that I found. Thank you for that. 

Hope you enjoyed reading what Meryl created with her Chalk Paint®.

Painting a Harlequin / Diamond Top Piece

One of the best parts of creating my business The Purple Painted Lady, is seeing the proud faces of customers who accomplished a furniture transformation using Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan and how they are excited to share their experience.

With that said- let me introduce you to Karen Meadows!

Karen is an artist and lives in Maine. She wrote me the nicest email with some photos, and I thought I would share them with you regarding this piece she completed with a black and white harlequin top.

“HOW TO” INSTRUCTIONS FOR CREATING A HARLEQUIN TOP:

Karen used Graphite, Pure White and Provence on this piece.

She referenced our post with HERE that is all about HOW TO CREATE A DIAMOND PATTERN TOP.  It has detailed instructions on how to create this harlequin pattern also.

LETTER FROM KAREN:

I have recently turned my focus towards furniture and Annie Sloan paint and waxes from the Purple Painted Lady namely Trish!
The piece shown below was found in a garage sale. She said it was $20 and the challenge was on. Well… First challenge was to stuff said bureau into my beetle!

Karen Meadows pic

 

I cleaned it with a warm damp cloth. I fixed the drawer ‘ gliders and I was on my way. There is a picture when the Harlequin design penciled on and painters tape on the diamonds that I won’t paint. The easiest way I have found to paint a Harlequin design is to mark a large X from corners to corners. Then just draw lines parallel to those original lines, remembering the smaller the space between your parallel lines the smaller your diamonds. These diamonds are made with 3 inch spread.

Karen Meadows Harlequin The Purple Painted Lady 3 Layout grid pic

At this point I have already remove the drawers and apply two coats of old white to the entire Bureau. The diamonds are painted with Annie Sloan old white and graphite. There are two coats. I found a small flat angled brush works best.

On the side I use painters tape for the stripes. The teal color is the Annie Sloan Provence. I love it!

On the hardware I used my dry stencil brush with a tiny bit of old white. Thank you for looking. I hope you enjoyed it as much as the new owner of the piece. XO Karen

More Typography or Image Transfer FYI

I love inspirational quotes on pieces of furniture.  Especially, in a kid’s room or a front vestibule.  Making a statement seems, …cool to me.

The most recent quote I am painting is “Life Moves Pretty Fast. If you don’t stop & look around once in a while, you could miss it!”  Are you a “Ferris Bueller” fan- because if yes- you know this quote and you may want to – click here.

A couple weeks ago- I painted this “Love” dresser.  The shot below shows it almost dine.  There was still a little bit of painting left on it…..

Typography LOVE quote The purple Painted Lady Chalk Paint annie sloan dresser

When it comes to typography on painted pieces, it is very popular!

The dresser below is still in the works.  First we painted the dresser with Graphite Chalk Paint® by Annie Sloan.  Graphite is reminiscent of Gun Metal.  It is a soft charcoal black – which I like to compare to a dark slate color or a vintage slate chalk board in an old school room! It is made with purplish blues, browns, and it is not completely black.

Graphite is a popular color, especially when I am detailing a piece with vintage typography. I receive a lot of emails about this color. But again– I want to clearly state again though – this is NOT black.  

The Purple Painted Lady Graphite Chalk Paint open lid

Once my dresser was painted and dried- I then followed the steps I have noted in another post here on my website.  So, in case you are interested in trying this yourself- check out an old post I wrote called “Typography! How does she do it?”

CLICK HERE TO READ THE POST ON STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS

The main thing is that Chalk Paint® is ideal for this technique.

 

As you will read- I like to use a projector and push an image up on to my dresser.

Using a water color pencil in the color I plan on using to fill in the design- I copy the design onto my piece.

Typography Life Moves Fast quote The purple Painted Lady Chalk Paint annie sloan dresser

In the photo I have here- I used a white water color pencil.

I will typically take the drawers out to paint the design, and then- using sandpaper- I distress my painted letters.

This will create a super smooth finish. Note the white dust on the Graphite paint on the upper drawers from sanding over the white letters.

Do not worry about that because once I go over this with my Annie Sloan Clear Wax- the residual dust will disappear.

Stay tuned and we will post soon showing the results using Annie’s Clear Wax over this piece.
