How to Paint a Primitive Frame
Sanded unfinished wood frame
Flat black paint or black craft paint
Color craft paint of your choice for a topcoat
Small piece of sandpaper #120 grit
MinWax Stain Special Walnut
Soft Lint Free Cloth
Paint the frame black with a foam brush. I find it easy to do the inside edges first, then the outside edges, lay it down and do the top surface. Let dry about ?? hour.
Apply the Wax Paste, with a lint free cloth. Let dry about 20 minutes.
Paint with your choice of topcoat color. Let dry at least 1 hour.
With the sandpaper, sand all of the edges down to the wood and lightly over the flat surfaces to expose some of the black paint.
With a lint free cloth apply the stain over the entire frame. Let dry overnight.
If you need a custom size frame made to fit a project, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be glad to make one up for you! Any questions please feel free to ask!
