White Washing Wood

We love trying new things here at Sideshow. Our latest experiment; white washing wood for a invitation (we will share the full invite soon!). To achieve the affect we were looking for, the white washing turned out to be a 3 step process.

1.) We brushed on a thin coat of grey stain to blonde wood veener paper.

2.) We applied a watered down white paint over the top of the grey stained wood.

3.) We took to the sheets with a light grade of sand paper and spot sanded each piece.

The whole process was a nice reminder of how we love to experiment! The finished piece of white washed wood was letterpressed 1 color. We are thrilled with the out come.
