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.

  4. Patty, I’ve been reading all through your site and also looked at the Caromal Colors site but can’t find answers to my questions so I’ll ask you. If I make a purchase, I’ll buy from you but right now I’m just information gathering (had to do that with chalk paint, too). I was surprised the company website had nothing on how these paints are special and why/when I need them.

    Other than no prep/sticks to most anything (I’m ALWAYS skeptical about that!), why do I want these paints? If a smooth finish is important to me, does that mean textured paint is not what I want? I can’t fully understand the need for textured paint so help me out here. What about Reclaim – how is that different?

    Is toner essentially a premixed glaze that you work like any glazing medium (paint on, wipe or sponge off)?

    Love reading your site and seeing yours and everyone else’s projects. Love the TV show DIY videos, too. I’d like to see you do a couple of in depth ones on leafing and antiquing, finishing, prepping for leafing.

    I was sad to see your comment about Bruno. Very sorry you lost your beautiful boy. They’re family. Been there :(

  5. if a smooth finish is important to you, then the textured basecoat paints might not be what you want – you CAN acquire a smooth enough finish with them, but it means applying the paint in thinner layers, which may take an extra layer to get the coverage you want, and some sanding to refine the paint once its dry – i guess it just depends on WHAT you are looking for, and HOW,… i personally love the TB’s – and dont blink if i need a smoother looking finish – its acquirable (like i said above) and personally, i think its a ‘prettier’ finish than some of the other ‘smoother’ finishes – it just has a hand crafted look to it – to some that might look ‘brush strokes, or hand painted’ – those folks typically gravitate to as close to all-over and even as they can find – i’d say if thats you, then use the Reclaim – its mean to be rolled on so that you DONT get brush marks left behind – but it is thicker than normal paint (its like a whipping pudding, whereas the textured basecoats are like a whippy peanut butteR) – rolling it (no foam, use a low nap) WILL leave a slight stipple if you apply thicker, otherwise roll out leaner coats and it will dry back to least amount of stippled look. for anyone that still thinks it’s not even or smooth enough for them, then we tell them to go find someone to spray their cabinets, or buy new ones – because thats the only way you’ll acquire that custom cabinet store look with DIY products. The Reclaim paints can be sprayed, as can the Botanical and APC Chalk paints , as an fyi, but most of our customers dont spray.

    back to the textured paint – why would you neeD? oh, there are so many things you can do with it – i create finishes all the time (just posted one – not sure if this will work https://www.facebook.com/FabulousFinishes/photos/a.247918978575958.67997.118451501522707/881891885178661/?type=1&relevant_count=1) where it LOOKS like brushed texture coming through the paint finish – but its as SMOOTH as a baby’s behind – it makes you want to touch it, it adds dimension, it adds interest, it creates heavy chunky barn worn old painted finishes that you could never do with other paints – it can be dragged to create one thing, or dragged over itself to create another look, or used as a first layer on a top of a dresser that has some damage, and it will hide those nasty effects for you …. on top of all that , it is like super paint in its durablity – its the paint i use on counters because i think its got the most stick power the minute it dries….

    yes, toner is premixed, comes in 2 colors now (a new one in the Botanical lineup) , and works much like the glazes – only the toner bites in more, where the glazes are more subtle. toner is meant to age up, to dirty, tto antique big time…. the new toner (the bontanical one) is more like the glaze consistancy, its subtle too – just the ORIGINAL toner is the ‘dirtying agent’ one….

    glad you are finding the site and videos helpful, i wish i had more time to post everything thats waiting to be shared … as far as more extensive videos, that would be tough, and very time consuming to do – right now the DIY Shelby wants to keep it at 30 minutes, and it a takes a good while to tape just that amount, and its VERY rushed – every time i’ve planned MORE extensive details, but then realize the time is almost gone so i have to revamp it mid stream – I do appreciate their offer, monthly, to tape a segment for me – I can at least show the basics of something, and hopefully give folks that little extra bit of confidence to jump in.

    as far as where to order product from, i have a good number of regulars that order from out of state – sure, they could try to find somewhere else that might be a buck or two cheaper, but they dont, because they know we’ll do whatever we need to get what THEY need to them, if theres issues we take care of it, we ‘give back’ on shipping if there is any overcharge, we ship out detailed, personalized instructions that WE have created, from experience, and are here if they need us – not sure about you, but i’d even pay for some of that stuff! hope this helps – patty

  6. Oh my gosh, Patty, thank you for all of that info. It’s very helpful. Totally get what you’re saying the benefits are. Exactly what I wanted to find out. Your Facebook link worked and what a beautiful finish.

    All of the work you put in to educating and assisting your customers (and fans!) is most definitely worth extra. You’re a huge asset to your vendors. I hope they know that.

    As soon as I dig out the right piece to try these products on, I’ll order from you.

    Have a great Christmas :)
