I love painting in general but I am definitely at my happiest when I am blending two or more colors and creating a totally new effect on a piece of furniture.  I am particularly fond of what I can achieve when I am painting with Wise Owl Synthesis Paints.  The colors make my paining process absolutely limitless.

I always recommend starting with a base color.  This color will most likely be the main color of your theme.  From there I like to go one color darker and one color lighter.  The degree of darkness or lightness will depend on the effect that you are going for.  Now you are ready for the Magic to happen.  The pallet has been created and now the fun is ready to begin.

I use the darkest shade to create shadows and depth to your design and the lightest shade to create the look of light reflecting onto the higher areas.

Here is one of my favorite pieces so far.
