I painted the entire chair Paris Grey including the fabric. I moistened the fabric by brushing on water then applied the paint. It take approximately 24 hours for the first coat to dry. The second and third coats toke a few hours each. The following day I applied Annie Sloan’s clear wax on both the fabric and wood areas. I mixed the clear wax with low odor mineral spirits about half wax and half mineral spirits and brushed the wax onto the painted fabric. Finally, I applied Annie Sloan’s dark wax on the wood portions of the chair to give them more definition.
