Chicken Art with Chalk Paint
This was such fun to paint! Art can be created with so many mediums. You don’t necessarily need special paints to create on of a kind art. In this post I show you how to create Chicken Art with Chalk Paint!
A great thing about this is you can use the same colors as you paint your furniture for perfect coordination. There is such a fantastic range of colors that it is a no brainer and you can custom mix colors.

Americana Decor Chalky Finish in
I started with a 1 x 12 piece of lumber, cut it to size (this one is 20 inches) and painted on a base coat of Americana Decor Chalky Finish paint in Rustic.
I let that dry and give it a coat of DecoArt Americana Decor Crackle Medium
To see the different ways I use Crackle Mediums, click HERE.
I let the crackle medium dry then I painted on the color Everlasting.
I use painters tape to tape off the border, Frog Tape.
Once I have the edge sealed well with tape I paint in the border.
I have to mix a few colors from time to time to get a deeper or a specific color tone.
For the chickens wattles and the red wing portion I used a combo of Rouge and Cameo.
The bodies have Inheritance, Delicate and some Everlasting.
The breast is Everlasting
And the Rooster tail is Relic and Carbon with a hint of Legacy for a highlight.
I also have a tutorial for using Deco Art Chalky Finish to paint a large rustic Nest painting.
Disclosure: I was provided with the Chalky Finish Paint by DecoArt but the usage, opinions and ideas are my own.
