Being drawn to rustic/primitive furniture with peeling or worn paint. Surely this look can be achieved on fabric?
Next, acrylic paint was smoothed over the surface. NOTHING happened...on wood it reacts almost instantly.
......and I waited, and waited......
Now dry, the back is more interesting.Since no master piece was created.....I cut off a section and washed it by hand. Better......but I'm going to try to get it to look more natural....perhaps using a toothbrush and removing more paint will give me the look I want. I'll report back.
