Rebecca,
Hi again!. It is just like anything else, it takes more practice than talent.Working as a graphic designer, I had to train myself to see subtle differences in color. Once you start doing that it is hard not to see them. :),

Hi Lisa,
This was not my project but an inspirational photo. But this is so easy to do with Chalk Paint. I would start with the Graphite and paint a solid layer. The Chateau Grey and Florence would be added in some of the crevices where you want it to look like it has been wet for a while and verdigris and moss (Chateau Grey) is developing.. Paloma – lightly brush on the raised surfaces to add highlights.I have used this combination or a version of it on my outdoor planters and pots and it gives a very authentic look. You might want to check outcome of my other posts for outdoor lights, verdigris, and zinc because there are so many options for this. Thanks for writing. I love questions. Write me any time and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
Cheers,
Leslie

Hi Leslie. I love this look also. I saw your response above to Lisa., Would you also age this further with sanding or another technique like newspaper or something so that you get the patina to look so old? Thanks very much.
