So a few days ago I shared a makeover I did on a little plant stand. I put a little wooden chicken in with the flowers, but he wasn’t really showing up against the color of the house… so I thought he should be blue.
See? Now he shows up against the house. He was easy to paint with a simple dry brush technique and some acrylic paint.
The chicken is very rustic looking and has a lot of rough details that I didn’t want to lose. I still wanted his crackle-like finish to show through.
Take just a bit of paint on a stiff brush and drag it over the surface, blending as you go. The whole chicken took me about 5 minutes, and because you use such a small amount of paint, he was dry within a minute or two.
Sometimes? You just need a blue chicken.
