Love this door. It is a beast.
It started blue – I began the painting with Caromal Textured Basecoat Putty
after the Putty, I stenciled a french poem in gold metallic, then when dry I brushed on a coat of Caromal Chipping Creme. The chipping creme will prevent the top coats of paint from bonding to the under coats…
once the chipping creme dries I brush over it all with Textured Basecoat Wisteria. When dry I sand the crap out of the whole door
once the sanding is complete I brush Caromal Colours Coffee Glaze over the whole door, and wipe back with a dry cloth
and this is what I get…
Another door – originally white, I dragged Textured Basecoat Colonial Blue and Bayberry
Over the dried blues and greens I brush on some Putty and then dry brush on custom blend of Modern Masters Silver and Warm Silver
when it dries I sand the whole surface then brush on Caromal Coffee Glaze and wipe it off. Lastly, I stencil some detail using Modern Masters Metal Bronze – paints that have actual metals in them, which then patina when sprayed with an activating solution.
The perfect touch…
Wouldn’t this be perfect? Maria Carr‘s romantic bedroom
a room divider
a backdrop, and sweet color at that!
