Chalk Painted Madonna


Chalk Paint is not just for furniture.  I forget this sometimes because I am always painting away trying to get through my ever-multiplying container of furniture.  It was refreshing to take a little time to relax and work on something small again.


I found this ceramic, Madonna statue at a local antique shop for a great price.  I wanted to make it look like an antique, wooden statue with an aged patina.


I brought out several cans of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, sat at one of our dining tables at Loot, and started painting my Madonna statue.


I painted her garments Old White and Graphite and chose Country Gray for her skin tone.  Her hair is Coco, of course, and I painted her tiny cheeks with Scandinavian Pink. The base is Primer Red and last, but not least, she has lovely, Louis Blue eyelids.


After the paints dried, I applied clear and dark wax which helped add the aged patina.


The Chalk Paint really transformed this lifeless Madonna statue.  I think she is beautiful now with her old world colors and a little bit of Chalk Paint makeup :)

Oh! She is beautiful now! I LOVE how you painted her with chalk paint, what a great idea, and she turned out just lovely! :)

How are you doing? And how is your sweet shop doing? It truly was one of the most beautiful shops I've seen...so much wish I could see it in person! I hope you are doing well, and that you had a great weekend! :)

Blessings,
