Some ideas you can use Fra Filippo Lippi

  • By far the most popular color family, blue paint is traditional and conservative in its darker tones and becomes breezy and cool when you add white. Blue colors are known to have calming effects when lighter versions are used so it is perfect for a space where you want to retreat and relax. Blue can also be energetic when bright tones are used and contrasted with white or yellow. Blue paint used alone is usually not the best color for a kitchen but in any other space you can make it work.  
  • use as a wash over bare wood . thin Fra Fillipo Lippi down 1 part Roma wash to one part paint and stir well. Apply with brush over surface ( I normally work in sq foot sizes at a time)and wipe off with damp rag until you achieve the result you like
  • Fra Fillipo Lippi is a contrast colour  so goes best with light colours though using with wood and charcoal and black can give some really effective results.
Once finished for protection you could:
  • apply a coat of clear soft wax to leave a smooth satin finish
  • wipe a coat of coat of Eco-Wax liquid carnauba for a harder finish with a slightly buff colour for aging
  • 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
  • For dark colours you could use liming or white wax to soften paint colour
  • Leave Au natural as a matt finish

Filippino Lippi was among the most gifted and accomplished Florentine painters and draftsmen of the second half of the fifteenth century. He was born in ca. 1457, the product of a famous and illicit relationship between the painter Fra Filippo Lippi and the young nun Lucrezia Buti. Trained first by his father, he entered the workshop of Sandro Botticelli in 1472, three years after his father’s death. He went out on his own a few years later, having developed a manner that was deeply imbued with the influence of his two great masters.
