Light it Up

Even brass chandeliers can be given a new life with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. A coat of  Graphite will usually cover the brass ( I have never needed  a primer), followed by a quick coat of Coco, and Paris Grey. It is not necessary to completely cover each of the preceding  layers of paint. Purposefully  leaving gaps in the colors enhances the look of vintage patina.  Dry brushing Old White, and Pure White  on  selectively will highlight the raised portions.
