easy faux peeled paint technique
I thought I'd share with you a new technique that I discovered! I'll show you how to create a faux peeled paint look using Ranger's Perfect Medium and Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints.

Before I started I've painted a Maya Road chipboard house with Claudine Hellmuth Studio Modern Red before starting. You could do this on any non-porous surface, painted papers, painted cigarbox, chipboard, painted canvas etc. In order for the technique to work you'll need to paint your surface first either with color acrylic paint or Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium.

Using the corner of the Perfect Medium Pad, wipe over the house shape in a few places to create a streaky look.

It should look like this. With a few streaks of Perfect Medium around the house shape. Make sure not to put it everywhere.

Paint over the entire house shape Here I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio in Painterly Pink You will notice that the paint resists and makes a peeled paint look.

It's an easy and quick way to create an aged effect! Hope you enjoy experimenting with this technique!

If you make a project and post it to your blog using any of my Studio Line products, let me know and I'll list it when I do linky blog post! Also for the instructors out there: send me an email if you are teaching a class using my product line and I'll mention it too!

I have a linky blog post planned for later this week with links to some fabulous projects so stay tuned!
