More Killer Distressed Finish Color Combinations….

I posted a previous entry on my first round of distressed finishes.  These are all barnworn distressed finishes created using Caromal Colours distressing products.  I thought I’d had it covered with round one,  but then I hosted my first Distressing Workshop earlier this week and realized there were way more combination’s to create.

Because black is so popular, I created quite a few with Peppercorn (black)  as the top coat.  I also found that using Wisteria (white) as the topcoat, and not using the toner,  it created a more contemporary color combo.  And,  I am really liking the Paprika (red) so I played more with that.

Can someone tell me exactly HOW many combo’s I could create?  There are 10 textured basecoat colors – Peppercorn (black), Chocolate (brown), Mustard (yellow), Paprika (red), Colonial Blue (blue), Cobblestone (sage), Bayberry (green), Putty (beige), Parchment (cream), Wisteria (white).  The barnworn finishes combine two colors. I have a feeling the answer could be in the hundreds?

Finishers Look At Finishes And See Rooms…

At least I do.    Tonight I was flipping through my portfolio – I was pulling out various glaze samples for a consult tomorrow morning.  As the boards passed me by I found myself thinking  ‘Wine Cellar… Library… Kitchen….’      I think I do this without even thinking…
