Some news about the the fun and love at van Gogh
Lil Half Pints
van Gogh Fossil Paint is now available in these adorable little half pints. Aren’t they cute? Don’t be fooled by their diminutive size – these babies pack a punch! They are double the size of most “samples”. These Lil Half Pints will allow you to paint a coffee table, or a night table or a couple of chairs (depending on your application method of course). Use them if you’re on a bit of a budget, or if you just want to try out our Fossil Paint. Another good strategy is to use them to EXPAND YOUR COLOUR COMFORT ZONE.
If you would normally use our Chalk or our Cashmere or one of our other more neutral colours, why not pick up a Lil Half Pint in one of our many other beautiful and bold colours that you really love but might have been afraid to try. Paint your piece with the bold colour first, allow to dry and then paint with one of our more neutral colours. Distress the top colour back a little to reveal the punch of glorious colour you started with. Reveal more or less depending on your style. Then, put a cushion or a vase of the same colour somewhere in the same room. Now you have a designer look and colour in your space without having to commit to that colour “in your face”. Here’s a piece I did using a Designer Blue colour I created specifically to match this glorious knob. It’s got a lot of this vintage bluey green colour to it, but it still reads as the off-white colour of our Fossil Paint colour called Chalk.
You will love the way this allows you to bring more colour into your life. It feels good to be surrounded by your favourite colours.
How pretty would these be on your Thanksgiving Table? So easy and festive! We painted these with van Gogh Fossil Paint, then with van Gogh Liquid Metals, some glitter and our van Gogh Crystal Highlights to create these sophisticated and glamorous center pieces. These small pumpkins last for weeks and the large pumpkin is FAKE! So that will last until next year.
Our wonderful Paintologist Tonya has created some beautiful signs and growth charts, and of course, furniture pieces, but here she shares with you her HOW TO technique for adding bling and sparkles to your next Christmas project – oh heck, why limit bling and sparkles to Christmas? I love it all year round!
Tonya Makuch of Hand Painted Furniture says: I thought I’d share this quick and easy holiday delight.
