Hi All;

This week I was very busy so I didn’t have time for a more traditional project video. I did want to try a new finishing technique I had come across called Hydro-Painting. It involves spray paint and a bucket of water. The resulting box is from one of my first attempts. Take a look and let me know what you think.

Great idea, good technique and very nice finish on the box.

I’ll have to try this in the future.

I think it looks my neck of the woods this is called marbeling and it is a very old technique.

What kind of paint did you use? Does it matter?

I used Valspar spray paint for this video. I haven’t played with other brands yet. I’d imagine that different paints would work a little bit differently. Water temperature might also have some effect.

Interesting technique. I’m curious if various color stains would work for this as well?

Have your say...
