The Everyday Guide Finishes

The Basic Finish

The basic finish embodies a classic hand painted look with a soft texture. Apply Jolie Paint loosely, leaving subtle brushstrokes behind.

The Smooth Finish

The smooth finish is perfect for modern interiors or furniture that lends itself to modern design. The flat brushwork will appear sleek and contemporary.

The Washed Finish

A washed finish is simple and beautiful. By thinning the paint with water, you can apply a translucent layer of color to highlight carvings, texture, or wood grain.

The Dry Brush Finish

Dry brushing is a great way to highlight details, edges, or carvings. The best results are achieved when you select accent colors that add soft contrast to your projects.

The Textured Finish

The textured finish is used to achieve a more rustic look, especially when used with colored Jolie Finishing Waxes. It highlights imperfections and creates depth on flat surfaces.

The Distressed Finish

The distressed finish creates a look that suggests subtle aging or wear over time. It is the perfect way to introduce patina and history to freshly painted surfaces.
