Jan came in today looking for Ce Ce Caldwell paint for a furniture piece. She brought fabric that had a green in it that she wanted to match, only none of the greens worked…
Darn, I wish I’d have taken a picture of her fabric. I told her
Let’s see what we can cook up
and headed back to the paint area. I grabbed Cinco Bayou Moss, a medium brown with a hint of green
and Spring Hill Green, a bright vibrant green
and mixed them together – 1.5 parts SHG to 1 part CBM to make this color
which we tested -left side is clear waxed
It worked perfectly, and Jan went home with both colors so she could mix her perfect color.
Meanwhile, the sample piece sat on the table all day, and it kept catching my eye… I loved the color
so I mixed up my own batch and painted these nesting tables
I love the color with the darker brown underneath, don’t you?
The tops were a slighty bumpy formica texture so I started by stippling Caromal Colours Texture Basecoat Chocolate (a dark brown) over that bumpy formica. Then when the tops dried we painted the whole thing with the custom green.
One nice advantage of using the CeCe paints over the Caromal Textured Basecoats is there is NO need for chipping creme in between – simply paint over that textured with CeCe Caldwell paint and when dry wipe back with a wet rag to reveal your under color –
From afar, sidelining the stars I created today…
It was a busy day! I painted the stars with various colors of Caromal Colours Textured Basecoats, Chipping Creme, and Toner
