In my workshops I like to show people my recipe for a Oil Rubbed Bronze finish
using Caromal Colours Chocolate Basecoat (smooth not textured)
and Modern Masters Metallic Paint Statuary Bronze
You can read the step by step directions in this post.
Wendy recently emailed me
I’m really enjoying using your Caromal Colours Chocolate Basecoat! I just want to THANK YOU! I did the metallic Statuary bronze and then polyurethane over that.
Here is my bakers rack before:
My white towel rack is transformed!
My brass knobs on the top and white bathroom knobs on the bottom are transformed! The long handle in the middle was wood & brass. This is fun!
This light was brass! I did two of these!
The plant pot was orange, the candle base was silver, the garbage can/soap dispenser and tissue holder were all green!
I used polyurethane on the soap dispenser and tissue holder because I thought they may get wet.
This clock below was wood
I took off the doors and did all 6 hinges and the door knobs. All were brass before!
My husbands loves how I’m saving money!!! Thanks again Patty!
HOW COOL IS THAT? I know Wendy used up one full 16 oz jar of Smooth Chocolate Basecoat ($15.50) then came and picked up another and started into that. The Modern Masters Metallic Paint you can get in 6 oz jars ($10-$15) and that will last you a long time. Great transformations, easy finish – just takes a little time and effort. Well worth it, don’t you think?
