The first of the newest video tutorials are back from editing and ready to view on YouTube.

Projects before


See how I transform an ordinary inexpensive brass chandelier with Chalk Paint and wax. In a three part video, I take you step by step through the preparation, painting and finishing process. I talk about the products I use, and demonstrate my painting and waxing techniques so you can easily give the same old world, vintage look, to any metal chandelier or light fixture.

Hi Leslie– Thank you for the videos. It seems there is another color on the plated brass between video 1 and 2 which is different from the graphite or the pure white. It almost looked like a pale rust color. Is that just the camera? Thanks.
