Thyme to show you a childs table and chair set I painted using John Sliney designs


I purchased this 
unfinished wood 
table and chair
and
decided to paint 
a
JOHN SLINEY DESIGN
on it


My main inspiration for this project 
was
 a design
by
John Sliney 
called

JORDAN GOES TO SCHOOL

The design can be found in the book

A ROAD TO SALTBOX MEMORIES

I used other designs 
by
John Sliney
 as
 inspiration to complete this project


Winter Blue, Titanium White, Lamp Black, Burnt Umber, Antique Gold, Sand, Buttermilk, Light Hauser green, Medium Hauser Green, Dark Hauser green, Plantation Pine, Rockwood Red, Midnight Blue, French Grey Blue, Light French Grey Blue, Slate Grey


I used painter's tape to create the border around my table
I painted it
Lamp Black


I re-applied painters tape to the border once the
 Lamp Black
was dry
so that I could start working on the center of the table

I painted the center of the table 
Winter Blue
and
Hauser Light Green


I transferred the design
using
graphite paper


transferring church design


I wanted the design to go all around the table

Here I am adding some shading for the hills



Painting the trees
and
school house



Adding the first house
 and
some sheep



I keep a small blow dryer handy 
to 
dry the paint more quickly
I use the largest possible brush always 
for 
my shading
which is a 1" flat brush
I also have on hand several size mop brushes


Lots of sheep!



Painting the flag









I added the alphabet to the boder using white graphite paper
I painted the lettering
with
Titanium White
It gives the appearance of chalk
 on a
chalk board.


I added some apples also!


Continuing to paint the houses 
and 
white picket fences.
Adding some clouds in the sky!


The lettering is done 
NOW
to finish all the apples! 



Now to paint the chairs!


I painted the seat
and
back of the chair
with 
Lamp Black
so it would resemble
a
chalkboard







After all my pieces were painted
 I gave them several coats
of

Americana Decor
Soft Touch Varnish

DecoArt 
provided me with the paint
 to complete this project as part of its 
Helping Artist Program
 and
