I promised Jeannette I’d whoop up a sampler comparison –
I have Caromal Paprika,Peppercorn,Pumpkin, and Parchment as well as toner and chip cream. I would like to do a cabinet with the dominate color being Paprika Is there a picture of Paprika over Pumpkin and Paprika over Black that I can see on your site? I plan to use the toner. Thank you, Jeannette
Here we go:
With each base color (Peppercorn textured basecoat on left, Pumpkin textured basecoat on right) I stippled/smooshed part and brushed smoother the other part. When dry I brushed on a coat of Chipping Creme. When that dried I brushed a topcoat of Paprika, then sanded with 80-120 grit paper to reveal each under color. Notice how it powders out and looks dull and lifeless
The top 1/2 of each sample will get Toner brushed on it
then the other 1/2 will get a brushed coat of Tea Stain Glaze. (just to show a variation)
the glazes are more subtle than the Toner – they can warm up a colored paint finish, but won’t offer the richness that the Toner adds
Brushed on, now wipe off
Wipe back with a dry rag
and you get
Darn flash… doesn’t help that it’s still wet
Now the Paprika over Peppercorn is on top, and Paprika over Pumpkin is on the bottom. Notice how the left side of the sample is lighter? That’s the Tea Glaze side
