Some ideas you can use Titian

  • Titian uses the same tone structure as Sandro Bottocelli which makes the two colour suit to set up soft earthy complimentary themes.
  • Titian is a tan tone but when trying to recreate or upscale a older style furniture is very subtle.  If you want a complimentry darker tone then would recomment Paolo Caliari to offer a lovely contrast. Also very good in highlighting appliques or stencils if using a complimentary contrast.
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

In his lifetime, he was second only to Michelangelo in fame and success, and was the first painter to paint primarily for an overseas clientèle
