HOME DIY: Colorful Chubby Chef Wall Art

If you follow me on Instagram, you know I painted this colorful chubby chef several months ago during my blog break. You also know that I had my kitchen remodeled. More on that later. Heck I haven't even shared having our 2 full bathrooms turned into one mega bathroom...2 years ago. I digress, follow me on Instagram for that instant content. Anywho, I kept some of our old kitchen decor, but several pieces were donated, as they didn't match our new kitchen, which has a retro 50s-60s vibe. If you've ever wondered what my artwork would look like as a colorful room, it's our current kitchen. I really liked this chubby chef wall art, but it was black with odd green dry brushing and the details didn't stand out. Paint is a great way to makeover mass produced art, like this chubby chef, to match any decor.

1) I cleaned it with a general cleaner and paper towel, to remove any dirt.

2) Then, I gave it a couple light coats of flat white spray paint. I've found both the matte and flat white spray paints are great for giving textured items a nice basecoat before hand painting with acrylics.

3) I used the DecoArt Americana acrylic paints and small paintbrushes to fill in the details.

4) I dry brushed the orange background to bring out the plaster style texture.

5) I used a liner brush and contrasting paint to add details.

6) For sparkle, I used DecoArt Glamour Dust and Craft Twinkles on different sections.

7) To seal the paint, I used DecoArt Triple Thick Gloss spray. To fill in the spots the spray missed, I used the paint on version.

You can customize this project to fit any color palette or relief object. My chubby chef wall art is made of resin, but wood and matte ceramic would be suitable too. Paint is always a great way to update most objects, especially mass produced artwork. Whatever you're making, have fun with it. Happy Makery!
