Beside the seaside


If you were hoping for a textured, sun-and-sea-soaked finish to your latest project, but feel the paint you’re using is giving too much of a just-painted-yesterday effect, then check out Saltwash. This is a powdered paint additive – simply combine it with your favourite paint for an authentic weathered effect.
Saltwash is made with natural sea salt and can be applied to any surface or piece of furniture (although as with any new finish, do test on a small area first), and works with chalk paint, acrylic, latex and more.
The Saltwash itself has no colour – simply add it to the base coat when painting, apply a top coat of paint alone, then once you’ve finished painting and the Saltwash has dried, sand the piece to reveal the layers. A perfect weather-worn finish!
