Some ideas you can use Renaissance White

  • Apply a base colour and thin the Renaissance white 50% with Roma wash and brush over the colour and while still wet wipe excess off with a damp rag leaving just a trace of white to soften you base colour
  • With tables and wooden furniture paint the legs or surrounds white and leave the rest as a clear varnish giving you a two tone vintage look
  • the photos enclosed are of a project where we used renaissance white and Firenze Blue. The blue having a white wash and the white having a blue wash
Once finished for protection you could:
  • apply a coat of clear soft wax to leave a smooth satin finish
  • apply a clear soft wax and once dry apply a dark soft wax for an antique look
  • For a hardwearing finish such as a table top then we recommend Glaze & Medium for a satin clear finish
  • Leave Au natural as a matt finish
