4 ON 1 Caromal Colours – Chipping Creme, Smooth, Textured…

I created this sample during a training session -

I like how it shows alot on a little piece of trim.    This piece of trim was originally painted an old gunmetal black. You can see the original color  – the three lines above -  where I’d taped off the trim to create four sections.

All four sections started with Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard.   Do you see that?

Section #1

1)Apply one layer of  Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard.  I brushed it on thinly.  Let dry.

2) Brush on one layer of Chipping Creme.     Let dry.

3) Brush on one layer of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Peppercorn. Let dry.

4) Sand to distress.

5) Brush on Toner and wipe with dry rag.

Section #2

1)Apply one layer of  Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard. Smoosh it on, mush it on… it will be applied heavier.  Bounce your brush around to stipple.   Let dry.

2) Brush on one layer of Chipping Creme.     Let dry.

3) Brush on one layer of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Peppercorn. Let dry.

4) Sand to distress.

5) Brush on Toner and wipe with dry rag.

Section #3

1)Apply one layer of  Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard.  I brushed it on thinly.  Let dry.

2)Apply second layer of  Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard, if necessary.  You want your original finish completely covered.  I brushed it on thinly.  Let dry.

3) Sand lightly to give it a nice feel.

4) Brush on Toner and wipe with dry rag.

Section #4

1)Apply one layer of  Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard. Smoosh it on, mush it on… it will be applied heavier.  Bounce your brush around to stipple.   Let dry.

2) Brush on another  layer of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Mustard, if necessary.   Let dry.

3) Sand to distress.

4) Brush on Toner and wipe with dry rag.

  2. Wow, this was amazingly helpful. Is the peppercorn color more of a charcoal color as it appears in the picture? It looks like exactly what I’m looking for for a project. Not exactly a stark black, but definitely quite dark?

    • awwww, I just scrolled up to look at the peppercorn and saw my Bruno – we lost him a couple months ago – anyway, yes, the peppercorn is black but its not black black – the reclaim licorice is definitely darker……….

  3. Hello. I just purchased and used for the first time. I am so confused about the directions for the chipping creme. It says to use a key to chip. I and others have tried this and have 0 results. We can’t find a tutorial video on the internet anywhere that demonstrates how to chip with a key and see how it actually works! Thanks!

    • Kirsten, you apply color #1 and let dry. then apply the chipping creme – apply it liberally for heavier reveal, otherwise just an even brushed on coat. let dry. then apply color #2 . Let dry. When dry, if you want that thicker chippy look take a key, or anything rigid (knife, screw driver, metal scraper) and drag/gouge it across the paint – it will peel away cool reveals, do it until you like it, then refine it with 80-120 grit sand paper.
