I need to create these samples –
Where do I start? Over my clean dry surface I brush on a Textured Basecoat color, then when it dries I brush over it with Chipping Creme, then when that dries I brush on another Textured Basecoat color.
Now the fun starts. I grab the gritty sandpaper and start to create a finish…I love this part – it’s so creative!
I’m done sanding – powdery and lifeless but not for long… I threw in an extra sample – Paprika over Peppercorn – since it’s one of my favorites –
Now brush the Toner on –
and wipe off with a rag
Hmmmmm – which do I like best?
Don’t forget the FINISH SCRATCH TEST! Once your paint dries it should stay put – give it a scratch – Caromal Colours paint products BOND to your surface, offering durability second to NONE!
Told ya –
Use it, love it, beat it up. The Textured Basecoat paints dry as more of a matte finish . If you prefer a higher sheen, or you want added durability against scrubbing, cleaning products etc, then apply your favorite topcoat – Caromal Colours sells Liberon Wax, a lovely furniture topcoat, that is yummy over top… I like to use plain old Min Wax wipe on poly from Home Depot.
These 3 will get a coat of wipe-on poly so that Cindy can see what the paints look like with a satin sheen-
See the sheen difference?
