Study of Patina in French Grey



Insider Tips on how to recreate French grey patina on wood.










Step 1

Start off by collecting inspirational images showing a rich patina in French Grey. Pinning these, like I did, on a Pinterest board specifically designated for this colour palette, works very well.









Step 2

Look at these in close-up. Note the amount of distressing of the paint on the flat surfaces and on the details of each piece.

Step 3

Choose one finish that you think will work well on the piece you want to paint.


Step 4

Enlarge the image as much as possible without losing definition.

Step 5

Study the paintwork in detail to identify the different colours that have been exposed through natural ageing over the years.

Step 6

Look very closely again and identify in which sequence they were applied. By this I mean, decide which colour was painted first, second, third and so on. 



Step 7

Prepare your wood for painting. It will most certainly need sanding to some degree, even if you're using your home made primer from Module 4.



Step 8

Mix the paints in the various shades of grey, using the recipes in Module 6.



Step 9

Apply the different colour layers in the correct sequence, using a resist where needed as in Module 2 and Module 6.

If you're going for a more subtly distressed look, follow the instructions in Module 4.



Step 10

Distress, always keeping your eye on the image you chose to work from. Stand back from time to time to view your piece from a distance and compare it to the image. Don't be afraid to distress "too much". You can always cover it up by adding another coat of the final colour where necessary followed by final distressing. 



Step 11

 Finally, seal your paintwork as we've shown you in the course, to create that extra rich patina.
