Blending Fusion.

I had been wanting to try this technique for a while now and there are a few talented women who rock this style using a chalk-based paint. I wanted to see if blending Fusion would be as easy, and the short answer is YES.

Fusion’s perfect for blending! I had no trouble at all getting different shades from just a few colours and if you’d like to see how easy it is to custom blend your own colours check out these YouTube Video’s Jennylyn did a while ago.

Blending the colours was the easy part, knowing where to put it had me at a loss. You see, I think this technique would be better suited to someone with an artistic flare…. I struggle to draw a stick man! I had to keep referring to old painted doors on Pinterest to better give me an idea of where to add the grungy bits.

For this project, I used Little Whale, Champness, Prairie Sunset a little Fort York Red, Raw Silk and some Fresco. You can get all of these products in my online shop

Comfort Zone

During the process, I was ready to give up and paint it white!! I really didn’t enjoy it and I think that’s because it took me out of my comfort zone. I am a technical painter by which I mean I like to know the steps, I like knowing what to do next. With this, I had to guess! and that made me feel like a kid with crayons.

So I can’t say I enjoyed this at all and at the time I said I wouldn’t do it again, the only reason I persevered is, I thought what is the worse that can happen? It could look rubbish and I could repaint it.  I’m really glad I did because I do love the end result! I can’t believe I did it, I feel a little bit arty!! ha

The moral of this little tale is GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE!!!!!

    Could you explain your steps? Did you immediately start blending as you painted or did you do a base coat first? What order were the colors applied? Beautiful work!

      I do it wet on wet that way it’s really easy to blend.

    Hi, i’m new to your Blog but like you this would be out of my comfort zone and yet, it is so pretty. I love what you did here. Is there any way you can give me a step by step or maybe some kind of tutorial?
