Greetings Everyone 

How are you doing today ......
I am back again with Cadence products. Today I will be sharing about Cadence Vintage Legend/ antique gesso and very chalky colors.
In my previous post I have detailed bit about the properties of the product. So here I have a take on them. 

I have painted my mini trinket Chester with the gorgeous cadence vintage legend and chalky colors,

Let me tell you what this Vintage Legend and very chalky color is about - 

1- VERY CHALKY COLORS  { source }
What is very chalky color ?? what does it mean by very chalky ?? all these questions popped up in my head when I first saw the product.

Very chalky colors are Water based silky Matte, chalky finish paint with smooth distressing feature for a Vintage and Shabby Chic look. Covers easily the surfaces. Requires no priming or sanding before using. Adheres to even the slickest surfaces. One-coat coverage with most colors on most surfaces. Quick drying.Customize with waxes or varnishes to finish and protect the paint surface. Cleans up easily with soap and water. Non toxic. Certified by EN 71 & CE.

 2- VINTAGE LEGEND { source }
Vintage Legend is Water based, specially formulated gesso paint with different sizes particles inside and colors to create crushed antique vintage surface. All kinds of Cadence acrylic paints can be used as first coat. For metal and glass surfaces, Cadence Hybrid is recommended as first layer. Apply Vintage Legend over the first coat.  For last layer over Vintage Legend, Very Chalky is recommended. Wait minimum 12 hours before scraping strongly. Cadence Home Decor Wax can be used for protection or colored waxes for depth. Non-toxic. Certified by EN 71 & CE.  
These products can absolutely be used on any surface and that is the beauty of CADENCE.

So I hope you understand the basic nature of the product, Now I will detail out the steps how I have painted the Chester... Let's get started 

vintage legend cadence
  • First of all clear the base with dry clean cloth or tissue.
  • Now take your choice of very chalky color and paint the surface all over evenly.
  • You need to allow the base to completely dry before applying vintage legend. Its is best to naturally air dry the base or if you are impatient just like me use your heat gun.
  • Pick your choice of vintage legend shade, for my project I have picked blue, red and white. Now apply randomly blue color and red color and allow it to dry completely 
  • Now I have taken white vintage legend and randomly brushed it on top of the blue and red color. 
  • Finally I have decorated it with resin and mulberry flowers.   
Viola you are done, isn't that amazing. You can do the same on any base.

I hope I was bale to inspire you all to pick up the awesome cadence product from store.

Happy Crafting
