I have been wanting to use this Caromal Colours distressed paint combination on something –
so I decided to use it on this accent table my mom gave me –
I started by painting it with a layer of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat color Paprika-
When that dried, I brushed on a layer of Caromal Colours Chipping Creme-
Then I had an idea…..
I wonder if it will crackle?
So I got out my Modern Masters Crackle Base and brushed it on the top –
When that set up, I brushed on the Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Bayberry color paint –
I waited…. and waited….and waited, and it did not crackle. Nothing. I was bummed. And having that crackle size under the Bayberry layer kindof messed up my quick and easy ‘distressing/chipping’… I had to really apply the pressure to the palm sander to reveal any of the Paprika basecoat. Thank goodness I only used it on the top –
I painted the rest of the piece with the Bayberry, and then toned the top using the Caromal Colours Toner-
When the Bayberry dried, I palm sanded to reveal the Paprika basecoat. Notice the big difference in color of the Bayberry untoned vs. Bayberry toned-
I brushed Toner on everything and wiped it off-
Now I have to find the perfect place for it. As of right now, it’s the new home for the kitty toys. Bruno is checking it out-
