Introduction – How to paint porcelain houses

 

Diane Lavoie shares with us a special Christmas project that she carried out a few years ago, but which is still relevant round the holidays. How can you paint porcelain houses? Well, the answer can be found just a little further down in this article!

 

The holiday season is just around the corner, a time when decorating ideas are limitless. Although I am very fond of a few traditions, I also like new things.

It was one morning at the beginning of November 2017, sitting in the workshop in front of the wood stove, my feet propped up on a log and a good hot chocolate in my hand that I suddenly had a mad desire . A desire for raw wood, white, gilding, silver and bling-bling for our new Christmas decorations.

While there is no question of investing for new, I, the great fan of “makeover”, quickly found myself head first in the bottom of a bin to take out a treasure that had been buried for a few years. .

So excited about my project, just a few minutes later I was in design mode. Here is my first “makeover” for this theme.

Products used to paint the porcelain houses

 

 

 

 

Step 1 – Clean

 

Spray the porcelain houses with the varnish remover/cleaner, spread with a cloth and leave it on the surface for about five minutes.

 

Step 2 – Rinse

Rinse well by wiping it all down with water to remove all residue.

 

Step 3 -Paint

You are now ready to apply a first coat of paint. Let dry well and apply a second coat of paint if needed and let dry for minimum 30 mins.

 

Step 4 – Wax

Apply a layer of natural beeswax to the entire surface, all over, with the wax brush, this will help you make the necessary corrections.

 

Step 5 – Finishing

Then, mix a little natural beeswax with the antique brown wax to reduce the colour a bit and then apply it with your fingertip and cloth.

Also use a little charcoal black wax with your fingertip in the desired areas to achieve the desired effect. It is always possible to correct by reapplying natural wax.

Conclusion

 

Not wanting to spend huge sums on decorations that are only used a few weeks a year and especially not loving the unnecessary accumulation, I give a second, third… and even fourth life to my invaluable treasures.

Living in the beautiful Laurentians region, I create with what we already have and with the wonders that nature offers us.

It’s all simply magnificent. You are now ready to paint porcelain houses!
