Ten Projects, Number Ten – APC Voyage Blue, Vintage Buffet/Bench

Left my present favorite piece for last…  one I painted with a pretty French blue,  Voyage ,  from American Paint Company.

Speaking of VOYAGE,  did I mention my oldest child moved away to college yesterday?

sigh……….

I instantly gravitated to this piece –  I’m pretty certain it was a vintage buffet in it’s original state – I liked it’s VINTAGEness, the storage, and most importantly, the height.  At 26″, it makes the perfect entry bench,  (as is or add a custom pad), a decorative low-boy chest for a flat screen, a storage chest at the end of a bed…  I like pieces that are multi-functional…

It was painted black when I acquired it – a very heavily painted, worn finish.  I knew I couldn’t invision a clean, pretty finish on this, unless I wanted to sand off all the imperfections first, which wasn’t an option

so I grabbed my Caromal Colour’s Textured Basecoat paints-  some Putty and Chocolate both, brushed on at same time -

I’m keeping a linear effect as I brush on that first coat, sparingly.

That’s our cheap chippy brushes, the ONLY brushes we like to use – perfect for jamming into cracks and crevices, and then does a nice job of brushing over the finish and leveling it out -

I use them for everything I paint, unless I have to roll on something.

Only beef with them is their shed-a-bility when first opened.  Like this one, below, he’s still pretty young, and I know if I use him he’ll spit some bristles…the best way to break them in, and get them to perfect FAST is to get them soapy wet, and smash them around in your hand, or in your sink,  or on your driveway cement – make those loose hairs break out – then rinse it good -

This little guy here is perfect!

This ones starting to wear, see how the right side has longer hairs?  You will literally wear DOWN the bristles from use….

I just found a really awesome cleaner – Deep Green.  It’s 20 bucks for a 16 oz concentrate – meant  to dilute into a squirtable cleaner, but you can use it full strength –  it will literally remove paint stains, even sharpie marker, and I’m diggin it because it does a nice job removing the remnants of a wax finish (I usually grabbed mineral spirits).    It’s eco-friendly, and has no smell!

Sidetracked again!  Back to Voyage….

First layer of Textured Basecoat Chocolate and Putty on.  Now what….

Now the APC Voyage is brushed on , completely covering the textured base.  To help move the Voyage around, I dip my brush, periodically, in water, and then back onto my painted piece.   When the Voyage dried I sanded to pop some detail underneath.

When I refined it to my liking, I decided to use a more durable topcoat instead of waxing.   You never know, it might house a super heavy TV, or a bunch of little tots arriving home from soccer practice :)

I decided, before topcoating, that I wanted to apply an allover stencil  – I really felt it would add the perfect touch…   so I grabbed a stencil, and more paint -

Five colors, all from American Paint  – I didn’t do that on purpose, honest! We are in the process of transitioning our open cans of color that we use for workshops and studio painting into squirt containers, thus the ketchup looking paint bottles :)

We sell stencils, but not this one.  It’s from my old wall finishing days, but one that has a real European feel…   if and when this stencil company decides to start production again, I’ll be first in line!

The texture you see  coming through is the Caromal Textured Basecoat Chocolate and Putty-

and then that soft Voyage over it,  sanded back to reveal…

Love the depth – stenciled with a multitude of colors and then topcoated, this time using Beautiful’s MATTE Sealer – a great finish for low sheen durablity -

I thought I’d use original hardware, but once the piece was painted, the original was just hum drum….  (ever have that happen?).  I swapped out the hardware  for new, changed  the finish and added swarovski crystals -

I used the original hardware, based it with TB Peppercorn,  dry brushed with a silver metallic blend, added black glaze,  a topcoat and Swarovski crystals.

I really like when pieces are finished all the way around,  not many are, and this desk was.    I wished there was more detail on the back side, so I created it myself using a thicker plaster through a stencil, and dry brushed  it like the hardware

I dressed that up with a few crystals as well…

Ten Projects, Day Eight – Eight Ways To Portray RECLAIM Paint

… and I was doing so good!     I got through 7 straight days of my “10 PROJECTS 10 DAYS”   sharing and blew it Monday night, when I left post 8 hanging in limbo…

How about I say,  Ten Projects in Twelve Days?    :)

This post clears several folders of pictures I have saved pertaining to Caromal Colour’s RECLAIM Paint.   Not familiar with RECLAIM?

RECLAIM® Is beyond paint.  It is the only product (that we know of) that was specifically engineered to work on your cabinets, furniture and accessories with no sanding, stripping or priming whatever the surface is. It has more pigment for better coverage, uses the newest nano-particle technology, has 3-4 times as many contact points for better adhesion, and contains very fine colorant to avoid fading and allow UV stability (i.e. it won’t fade in the sun!).  Regular paints do not come close to the performance, versatility or durability of our products.
 
Q: What surfaces will RECLAIM® adhere to?
A: RECLAIM will bond to almost any clean, dry, and grease free household surface without sanding stripping or priming!  These surfaces include wood (raw or painted in oil, latex, polyurethane, varnish, epoxy, whatever), metal, formica, laminate, plastic, linoleum, masonry, tile, and even glass…
 
Q: What are the best tools to use?
A: We like to keep it simple for RECLAIM.  First use a natural bristle or high-quality “chip” brush and “mush” or stipple into crevices or areas that can’t be rolled such as table legs.  Avoid regular brush strokes with RECLAIM.  For all flat areas, simply roll on RECLAIM.  Our favorite roller is a high quality all purpose fabric roller (the fluffier, the better).  Don’t put any pressure on the roller and be haphazard with your application.  There is no need to be methodical or go in one direction.  RECLAIM is designed to make even the most novice of painters successful in application.
 
Q: If I don’t have to sand, strip, or prime, how do I prep the surface?
A: Be sure your surface is clean, dry, and grease free.  Products like Liquid Gold, Pledge and Murphy’s Oil Soap leave a greasy residue that should be removed for the best bonding on surfaces.
 
Q: What should I clean the surface with?
A: We recommend any harsh household cleaner like Spic and Span, Fantastic, or Mr. Clean that removes grease.  One of our favorites is Simple Green.  We use it at full strength with a scrubbie for best results.  If you suspect your surface has a waxy substance on it, vinegar is terrific for removing wax.
 
Q: How long does it take to dry?
A: Dry time for each coat is 2-4 hours on average but allow for increased drying time in humid conditions.
 
Q: Should I topcoat RECLAIM?
A: RECLAIM® provides a protective coat within its formula. If you’re worried about wear and tear or protecting a heavily used surface, like a floor or a daily used table, wait 3-5 days and apply 1-3 coats of our RECLAIM® Multi-Purpose Sealer. This will give added durability and weather resistance to any indoor/outdoor project. For surfaces like counters, topcoating with this  sealer is a must.

That’s a good start, now let’s clear some photo files!   Recently, RECLAIM added 4 new colors to the lineup -

Q: How can I achieve other colors of RECLAIM®? A: The best way to achieve other colors of RECLAIM is to intermix our existing colors. This maintains all the integrity and properties of RECLAIM. It’s simple… get a small disposable cup and try it with small amounts of RECLAIM in approximate proportions. For example in a paper cup with a plastic spoon, mix approx 1 part (or one spoonful) of Pewter with 1 part (Or another spoonful) of Off White to make a softer gray color.

Brushed with a coat of Sticky Size. Sticky Size is an adhesive size used to attach Gilding Leaf and Foils.   You can see the hardware looks milky when the size is applied. The size will dry clear and very tacky (approx 15 mins) .

These pictures aren’t that clear,  for a complete photo play by play of this finish, check out my post Creating A European Feel .

I used Reclaim Versailles,  glazed with Caromal’s Coffee Glaze, and stenciled with  Caromal’s Earth Stencil Creme for this client’s two pieces – one of my favorite finishes,  a soft, subtle color -

7)  A Reclaim Cabinet,  Wiped

This is my inspiration – a door panel that I played around on one afternoon.  I base coated it with Reclaim Poppy and let dry.  Then, I brushed on Reclaim Licorice (black) and immediately wiped it back with a slightly moist rag.

It was the coolest thing, and I loved the results.  I wanted to try it on an actual piece -

I decided on this smaller, accent cabinet,   a perfect learning piece.

Anyone that enjoys playing with paints should try this method –  I think there are great finishes to be had from it.

But note: fiddling can get you in trouble.  When you apply the paint this way (thinly, and wiping it back to even thinner) it will start drying on you, which will make the ‘wiping back’ more challenging.   When I painted this cabinet there were several sections I had to redo , practice will make perfect, right?

That’s why you must test and play and test and play – get a hang of how it feels.  If you botch up a panel, you can brush that same color BACK over the section you don’t like (must be done right then)  and it will pretty much re-activate the paint from the previous layer you just botched, and you can again wipe back, to get a more even finish.

All in all I was very pleased with how it turned out, you’d never know by looking at it that it was brushed on and wiped back – it looks like wood grain!

A finish I’ll be experimenting more with when I find some time.

I applied more licorice over the top to add contrast

Yes, Reclaim is typically rolled on, for that quick and easy, even application. But it can also be used more artistically -

8)   A Peek At Where It Started

From earlier this year when the creators invited their Retailers and Reps to their digs in PA-

They introduced their new sealer in the Reclaim line – waterbased, low voc, non-yellowing sealer good indoors and out

An inspirational door, first coat Reclaim Mocha brushed on and wiped off with damp rag, second coat Reclaim Sage brushed on and wiped off with a damp rag, dry, light sand, then apply Toner to add that aged effect.

When it dries, it’s done – it not only adheres without priming/sanding/stripping but remember, it also has a sealer built in :)

Reclaim, again, brushed on and wiped back , over a base coat of their Textured Basecoat paint – simple, effective, and resulting in an authentic looking weathered door panel -

I believe in the product lines I carry – if I didn’t, it would be impossible to promote them.  Caromal Colours has a special place in my heart, not only have their products proven fantabulous  (six years strong),  but the people behind the scenes are genuine, and trustworthy,  necessary for a successful marriage -

Here’s more on RECLAIM -

Q: Is RECLAIM® safe to use while I’m pregnant, on a child’s crib or around my children and pets?
A: Yes, RECLAIM is low VOC, non-toxic, and has no odor.  Therefore, it is safe for all of these circumstances.  We do recommend that you keep these products out of reach of children, and that you practice safe work habits and good common sense while using them.
 
Q: How long do I have to let it cure?
A: RECLAIM® will be sensitive to chipping until it has undergone an initial cure period of 2-3 days. Allow to cure for 30 days before routinely washing with soap.
 
Q: Why is RECLAIM® slightly textured?
A: It is slightly textured so you will not get roller marks no matter how much of a beginner you are. The texture also allows for versatility, hides imperfections and is easy to maintain (won’t show fingerprints).
 
Q: What if I want it to look more like regular paint?
A: Just roll on a thinner layer.
 
Q: Can RECLAIM® be applied with a sprayer?
A: YES. RECLAIM works with both 2.4 nozzle HVLP (High volume, low pressure) and airless systems
 
Q: Can I tint RECLAIM® to achieve my ideal shade?
A: Yes.  For each quart of RECLAIM, you can tint with up to 4oz of universal water based tints. We only recommend that seasoned pros and brave newbies go this route.  Tinter beware! RECLAIM takes no responsibility if your tinted shade turns out incorrectly. But remember, RECLAIM colors are designed to be the “perfect” neutral palette; stick with those when possible.
 
Q: What if I want a glossy finish?
A: No problem, just wait 3-5 days after RECLAIMing, and apply your favorite high quality polyurethane in the sheen of your choice. (Please test this on a small area and be sure you like the sheen when it dries before doing an entire project). We also recommend our RECLAIM® Multi-purpose Sealer which will leave a satin sheen.
 
Q: What if I’m RECLAIMing a bumpy surface that has been painted one (or five) too many times?
A: RECLAIM is slightly a textured finish and will conceal minor imperfections in your surface.  However, if you want a smooth finish, you’ll have to sand down the bumpy surface as much as possible.
 
Q: How often does Chipping/Peeling happen and how can it be prevented?
A: On the rare occasion that chipping or peeling may occur, the cause is from a bad surface. No Sanding, Stripping, or Priming is required. However, the surface must be CLEAN, DRY, GREASE, OIL and WAX FREE.  Scrub the surface thoroughly with a good de-greasing cleaning product. We love Simple Green or TSP for heavy duty grease. Rinse the surface. Allow surface to dry completely (overnight is best) before applying RECLAIM.  Keep in mind that some “cleaning”/polishing products may leave behind waxy residues, which must be removed to ensure good bonding. Washing the surface with white vinegar will remove a wax buildup. Scrubbing with a de-greasing cleaning product after washing with white vinegar is still recommended.
 
Q: What do I do if I didn’t prep well and my finish is chipping?
A: If possible lightly sand the chipped area with 220 to 400 grit sandpaper and touch it up with more RECLAIM.  Then, let RECLAIM fully cure.  The bonding power of RECLAIM occurs as all the moisture evaporates.  As with all paint products, the full curing process takes several weeks.  A newly RECLAIMed surface may be lightly used within hours of receiving its last coat, but RECLAIM will reach its full bonding strength, durability, and hardness after approximately 30 days.  During the initial curing period, try to keep your RECLAIM surface as dry as possible. To protect a finish on a surface that did not get properly prepped, apply our RECLAIM ® Multi-Purpose Sealer.

Ten Projects, Day Seven – A Painted Ombre Yellow Dresser, Absolutely Citron

This project is a dresser, transformed, with six colors of American Paint Company -  Uncle Sam, Navajo White, Heaven’s Light, Parchment, Amber Waves of  Grain, and A-maizing yellow ,   and Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat in Wisteria, for the top.

At this point I contemplated leaving the piece as is,  or adding a stencil. As much as I  <3  <3  stencils,   if I don’t like them after I apply them, it will bug me to the point where I’ll repaint over them.      Thus, if I made the wrong choice on this one, it would be a major butt whooping to repaint it again…

I could SEE the stencil in my mind,  and knew I needed to apply it.  I used APC’s  Uncle Sam to stencil the design.   The stencil is an old one from my wall business collection,  and no longer available as the company went out of business.   It’s a thinner stencil,  and that makes the stenciling more cumbersome, especially since it’s worn from past use.  But the design was perfect for this piece, and worth the slowing down.

I gold leafed the front legs, and painted the top with a blend of APC Navajo White and Heaven’s Light,  a pretty pale creamy yellow.   And sanded the finish until I liked it.

I sealed the base with a mix of APC Vintage Clear Wax and Clear mixed with Gold Mica.  You can see in the picture below that the closer half has just been waxed – (the black dot is from my camera lens :(  )

When the piece was dry I didn’t like the top – I liked the idea of light against the ombre yellow, but it was too creamy, instead I wanted it to be a cleaner white.

I added a couple layers of Caromal Colours Textured bascoat Wisteria, and lightly sanded.  I sealed it with Caromal’s new Countertop and Cabinet Sealer. When that dried I buffed it with a soft cloth dipped in Clear Wax-
